"As we speak, the handing over is done and so the old MD is not in position. We are all aware there is a new government in power and the new government comes with the responsibility of making sure government agencies are management by their people so it may be coincidental or perhaps the government had its programs already. We cannot say it is due to the pressure the workers gave that gave birth to the appointment of the new managing director," he said.
Last month, a number of unhappy workers at Ghana post called for the immediate dismissal of the managing director Eric Yao, whom they accused of mishandling the company's funds.
The workers further alleged that the director conspired with with head of ICT at the company, Godfred Aboagye to misappropriate the company's funds.
