The Minister for Transport, Kwaku Ofori Asiamah, has tasked the newly inaugurated Boards of the Ghana Ports and Harbours Authority and Intercity STC Coaches Limited to always ensure harmonious relationships with the Chief Executive Officers and other executives of the companies.
Lamenting past instances where executives of companies fail to work hand in hand with their governing boards, Mr. Asiamah warned the new Board Chairmen of the two companies to refrain from such acts and work together to achieve their goals.
He was speaking during the inauguration ceremony of the two boards.
“I’m here to give you the direction, but I need your cooperation. Let us work together. I don’t want to see the usual tendency of Chief Executive-Board Chair conflict, where everybody tries to show where power lies. If the two of you have been appointed by the same person, you need to work together. Don’t give me that unpleasant chance of recommending to the President that these people are not working together, so let’s change them. I hope this would not happen on these Boards. The need for us to work together is more important than any other thing,” he warned.
In response to the Minister’s call, the Board Chairman of the Ghana Ports and Harbours Authority, Isaac Osei, pledged to co-operate with the government in all of its dealings.
“Let me assure you on behalf of the board that we take your comments quite seriously, and we will be working with you to ensure that the policy direction which government wants us to follow will be followed very closely. Our failure is your failure, and our success will become your legacy when you have left this Ministry. So we know that you’re going to give us all your support.”
