I’m not a thief – Sacked GEPA boss

Gifty Klenam, former Chief Executive Officer of the Ghana Export Promotion Authority (GEPA) is vehemently fighting to clear her name after she was sacked by President Akufo-Addo.

She labeled allegations leveled against her as unfounded, concocted and attempts to impugn her hard won reputation.

“I’m not a thief and Information put out there in connection with my dismissal is inaccurate.

“I have been visiting the presidency to seek answers from the father of the nation, President Akufo-Addo but I haven’t had the chance to meet him yet,” she told Joy News.

She alleged that some unscrupulous people are behind her sack adding that, “All I can say for now is that, there is an evil intent behind the termination of my contract. But when I decide to dig deeper all they tell me is that Gifty don’t talk…at the right time the accurate details will be conveyed”.

Interestingly, when she was pushed by Kojo Yankson to name her pacifiers, she maintained that she has been cautioned to be measured in the comments on the matter.

She, thus, indicated that she will wait for the appropriate information to be conveyed at the right time by the presidency but insisted she is no thief.

The CEO of GEPA, Gifty Klenam, was sacked on June 6 along with her two deputies.

She was a former Member of Parliament (MP) for Lower West Akyem.

She has been in the export business for 20 years and spent eight years as a member of the Parliamentary Select Committee on Trade, Industry and Tourism.

Her sacking follows that of the Ghana Ports and Harbours Authority (GPHA) CEO, Paul Asare Ansah and the Managing

Director of the Bulk Oil Storage and Transport (BOST) Company, Alfred Obeng Boateng.

More top officials of some state agencies are also expected to be sacked between now and July.
