- Eva Mends, until her removal was the first female to become director of budget at the Finance Ministry
Eva Mends, one of the widows of late MP Emmanuel Kyeremateng Agyarko, has reportedly been removed from her post as Director of Budget at the Finance Ministry.
According to a report by TV3 Ghana, management of the Ministry took the decision to remove her from the post earlier this week.
Although no official reason has been given for her removal, it is believed that some staff of the Finance Ministry have hailed the decision.
Madam Eva Mends became the first Ghanaian female to be made Director of Budget when she was appointed to the post.
She had served in this capacity since May 2017, before her unexplained removal this week.
Sources close to the Ministry say though she worked her way through the ranks, “there were other more qualified people who know the job than her”.
The source added that although she has been removed as Director of Finance, Ms. Mends is still a staff of the Finance Ministry.
Ms. Mends joined the Ministry as a National Service person in 1991 and held several positions including Head of The Americas Desk in 1998, Head of Budget Development in 2006 and Group Head of Public Financial Management (PFM) reforms in 2013.
Ms. Mends is one of the wives of the late MP for Ayawaso West Wuogon, Emmanuel Kyeremateng Agyarko.
The late Agyarko passed on in November 2018 while on admission in the United Kingdom (UK).
The lawmaker was reportedly battling with an illness and had been admitted at the Ridge Hospital in Accra before being sent abroad after his condition stabilised.
However, his condition rather worsened leading to his death in the UK. He died at the age of 61.
