Opare Hammond is dead
Asempanews.com is learning that former Member of Parliament for Adenta and Managing Director of the Precious Minerals Marketing Company (PMMC), Dr Kwadwo Opare Hammond, has passed on.
Family sources say the former lawmaker died at a hospital in Accra last night after a short ailment.
Opare Hammond in 201 4 was removed as the Director of Finance and Administration of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) for alleged financial impropriety and disobedience to then National Chairman, Paul Afoko.
He threatened to take legal action against the party if he is not reinstated after flatly denying the allegations.
President Akufo-Addo upon assumption of office in 2017 appointed the late MP as MD of the PMMC.
But last year, the Ghana Mineworkers local Union during a protest asked President Akufo-Addo to dismiss him for procurement breaches and engaged in sacking staff for no reason.
