NIA Staff Petition President Akufo-Addo for Removal of Executive Secretary

The National Identification Authority (NIA) Division of the Public Services Workers Union, Trades Union Congress (TUC) Ghana, has formally petitioned President Nana Akufo-Addo to demand the removal of Executive Secretary Professor Kenneth Attafuah.

The petition, dated July 1, has been signed by 920 NIA staff members, representing nearly the entire workforce, according to the union.

“The staff and union’s decision to petition your high office for the removal of Professor Kenneth Agyemang Attafuah is grounded on unfair labour practices contrary to the labour laws and Human Resource Manual and Policy Framework for Ghana Public Services, violations of SSNIT law, poor corporate governance structure, selective and administrative injustice in the recruitment, placement and promotion of staff, and lack of innovative ideas to manage the administration of the authority,” the petition states.

The staff expressed concerns that Prof. Attafuah’s continued tenure could result in further harm and reputational damage to the NIA.

“His staff have absolutely lost trust in his administration and can no longer work with him in confidence. These, coupled with infractions in the labour laws and SSNIT Acts, are enough justifications for his immediate removal from office without further delays,” the petition adds.

The union believes that dismissing the Executive Secretary would restore staff confidence and enhance the Authority’s reputation.
