Govt Freezes Opuni's Assets

The immediate past Chief Executive Officer of the COCOBOD, Dr. Stephen Opuni has had his bank accounts frozen pending investigations into his leadership at the national produce buying board.

There had been allegations of malfeasance, mainly by members of the New Patriotic Party, against his administration, while others threatened he would be among the first of officials of the erstwhile National Democratic Congress government to face trial for untold infractions.

He persisted in denials of any wrongdoing.

The New Patriotic Party government on Thursday January 12, 2017 ordered Dr. Opuni to vacate his post by close of work Friday, January 13, 2017.

He was appointed CEO of COCOBOD in 2013.
