Sack Bosompem Osafa-Maafo as DG for SSNIT to maintain public trust – Group to Prez


The Forum for Accountability and Justice (FAAJ) has called for the dismissal of the Director General of the Social Security and National Insurance Trust (SSNIT), Kofi Bosompem Osafo-Maafo.

FAAJ argued that Mr. Osafo-Maafo’s handling of the sale of SSNIT hotels to the Minister of Food and Agriculture, Mr. Bryan Acheampong, has been poorly managed.

They have also requested for the sale to be stopped since, in their view, it was against the public interest.


The group threatened to embark on a series of demonstrations should the authorities fail to respond to their demands.

“The Forum therefore calls on the appointing authorities to dismiss Mr. Kofi Bosompem Osafa-Maafo as the SSNIT Director General with immediate effect and to stop the continuous efforts by SSNIT to sell the hotels against the interest of the people of Ghana,” the group said in a statement.

The group noted that the Director-General has shown blatant disregard for ongoing investigations by the Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ).

FAAJ accused Mr. Osafo-Maafo of fast-tracking the sale, which they describe as tainted and irregular.

The group therefore wants him removed to maintain public trust and uphold accountability within SSNIT.

“FAAJ has gathered that ever since Mr. Osafo-Maafo was sent to occupy the position of Deputy Director-General in charge of Investment & Development up till his questionable promotion to the SSNIT top position after his former boss was unexpectedly removed by President Akuffo Addo, he has been preoccupied, concentrated and leading the process of selling off the SSNIT hotels at all cost to his
party cronies despite the alleged irregularities and unconstitutional processes involved in same and which has become a subject of enquiry before a competent state investigating body.”

“The disrespectful disregard for the demands of the workers of Ghana who the state is holding SSNIT in their trust and the snubbing of CHRAJ’s investigations by Mr. Osafo-Maafo smacks of a predetermined “Agyapadee” like- fashion to capture the state of SSNIT as part of a grand scheme of state-capture at all cost and MUST be resisted by the BOLD BLOOD and TOIL of all well-meaning Ghanaians.”
