The chief executive officer of the Ghana Cocoa Board (COCOBOD) Dr. Stephen Opuni has been accused by workers of the company for engaging in questionable deals.
According to the unionized workers of the company Opuni allocates some of the cash crops, sells and keeps the proceeds.
They also allege that the deeds of their boss have resulted in the loss of over $10 million to the State which could have been used to develop the overall economy of the country.

Speaking at a press conference in Accra on Friday, general secretary of the General Agricultural Workers' Union (GAWU), Kingsley Nkansah said: “thousands of tons of cocoa are sold by the management of COCOBOD which is hidden from the government and for which no proper accounts are maintained either. This is known as special sample residue”.
The workers union has therefore petitioned President John Mahama to set up an investigative committee to look into the issues and malpractices at COCOBOD
