Gathered Intel indicate, that Isaac Tetteh, a former Deputy Director of Barclays Bank, and currently the deposed Deputy Managing Director (Business) of Consolidated Bank Ghana, has been hounded out of office.
No immediate official reasons are given for the abrupt cancellation of his appointment, which contract details specify a tenure of four years. But the Intel shows, that his dismissal has a lot to do with a purported evidence of a video showing him in a compromised meeting in the company of Peter Mahama, brother of President John Dramani Mahama. The Intel says, that soon after he was handed the appointment in September 2018, national security surveillance was set on him, until the camera lenses were used to compromise his dismissal.
A product of University of Ghana, where he pursued BA in Economics with Political Science minor, he furthered his education in the UK, where he obtained MBA in Finance from University of Manchester. He has a total of 20 years experience in banking, having worked as Head, Corporate Banking, Barclays Bank, from 2003-2005. From 2006-2013, he was appointed Head, Business Banking, Barclays Bank. In total, he holds 12 years working experience with Barclays Bank.
The confirmation of this news comes at the heels of a recent one, where the Director of Ghana Health Services, Dr Baffour Awuah, was arbitrarily removed from office on suspicion of his continuous flirtation with the NDC, a party he defected from to join the NPP, two years before the NDC went into opposition in Elections 2016.
The NPP, then in opposition in the 1990s, made a lot of noise about the cold relationship which existed between President Flt Lt JJ Rawlings and his Vice, Kow Nkensen Ackah, who openly flirted with the opposition NPP and had several times tried to attend Cabinet Meetings; where in one such incidence, it didn’t fare him well, alleging he was trounced and forced out of the meeting.
The NPP has always canvassed for an all-inclusive and transparent governance. But it never practiced the virtues it preached. Soon after taking office in 2017, it held the country spellbound to a violent siege, having unleashed a terrorist organisation, the Invisible and Delta Forces to force out former government functionaries of the previous regime from their offices. In the process, public institutions and government offices were besieged, including toilets, toll booths across the country and traditional markets.
Cars of former government functionaries were seized, and some were never returned. In the peak of the mayhem, the newly appointed Ashanti Regional Security Liason Officer was attacked in his office and forced out. The perpetrators were arrested and detained in police custody for disturbing public peace and for vandalism of public properties. Charges were pressed against them to appear in court. But their colleagues flooded the Kumasi High Court, attacked the police and suspended court proceedings, having freed the suspects.
The suspects later turned themselves in, and were fined a paltry GHS1,800, after such contemptuous attack on the judiciary, public peace and causing bodily harm and physical damage to public properties. After a tea party with President Akufo-Addo, the commander of the terrorist group issued a warning to the police.
Several police officers have since been gunned down, after the warning issued by those thugs, albeit such link is not immediately possible to establish. An investigative documentary, Militia in the Heart of the City by Manasseh Azure, though has exposed the quantum of official backing the thugs received from government. The same thugs were deployed to destabilise a bye-elections at La Bawaleshie, Ayawaso West Wuogon Constituency, in which 18 people were shot, sustaining various degrees of injury in the process.
This siege mentality of the government of President Akufo Addo is not an isolated case on the streets. It is firmly rooted in parallelism to the administrative structure of the government, where Ken Ofori Attah, Minister of Finance and Economic Planning, cousin of President Akufo Addo and owner of Databank and Enterprise Group, has refused to work with civil servants in his office.
He brought his staff from his former office at Databank and Enterprise Group. Another set from Databank and Enterprise Group, have since occupied other positions such as at the Electricity Company Ghana, Security Exchanges Commission, etc, increasing government expenditure of salaries and emoluments. In a report by the Auditor General’s Office, the Ministry of Finance and Economic Planning was the highest in the table of MDAs, leading in expenditure by about twice as pertained in other Ministries, Departments or Departments.
Speaking on the subject of siege mentality, John Peter Amewu said, the NPP government should endeavour to introduce a bill legislating the replacement of civil servants with political appointees. His statement is backed by a confession from Kwame Bampoe aka Abronye DC, the NPP Bono Regional Chairman. In a TV political talkshow, he suggested on UTV, that should in case he becomes the Interior Minister of Interior, he’d institute measures by conducting detailed investigations at any constituency to confirm all recruits for police training excluded members and sympathizers of the NDC.
Ending his statement, he confirmed in repetition to what Akomea aka Double said at La Bawaleshie, when he assaulted the Ningo Prampram law maker, Sam Dzata George. Abronye repeated, that what happened on January 31, 2019, at Ayawaso West Wuogon Constituency on the day of the bye-elections, was a dress rehearsals of what awaits the NDC in Elections 2020. Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. And the conspiracies have Isaac Tetteh removed from CBG as the Deputy Managing Director (Business) on suspicion as a sympathizer of the NDC.
