The Industrial and Commercial Workers’ Union (ICU) has accused Ghana COCOBOD’s chief executive officer, Stephen Opuni, of spending over GH¢600,000 on the renovation of the official residence that was given to him by the company.
The ICU’s executive secretary, Solomon Kotei, said Dr Opuni spent $175,000 on the gate of the house alone and huge sums on extravagant travels, according to a report by tv3network.com.
He said one of the CEO’s trips had cost the company $24,000 dollars.
On Thursday Mr Kotei led some workers of COCOBOD on a demonstration calling for Mr Opuni’s dismissal.
A petition has also been filed at the Attorney General’s Department and the Commission of Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ) over Dr Opuni's management of the company.
