Mr. Apatsea Isaac Kwasi CEO of Center for Leadership and Democratic Governance (CLDG) has taken a swipe at Razak Kojo Opoku of CVM for criticizing Mr. Sam K. Jonah for his words about Ghana facing debt crises under Dr. Bawumia.’Ghana not facing debt crises under Bawumia: Sam K. Jonah got it all wrong CVM’.
Mr. Apatsea Isaac Kwasi again said Mr. Sam K. Jonah has been charitable with his words. With his background he knows inside out of of debt, raising funds, loans and grants and can’t sit down for Ghana to lose than to caution those Incharge.
Mr. Sam K. Jonah joined Ashanti Goldfields Corporation in 1979, working in different capacities , including underground operations. At the age of 36 he became the Chief Executive Officer, and supervised and transformed Ashanti Goldfields into a mining multinational, increased gold production from 240,000 ounces per annum to over 1.6 million ounces in over ten years, and oversaw the company’s listing as the first operating African company on the New York Stock Exchange.
In 2009, he became a non-executive director of Vodafone.
Currently, the chancellor of the University of Cape Coast, Ghana, Jonah chairs the boards of Equator Exploration Ltd, Scharrig Mining, Equinox Minerals, Uramin, Moto Goldmines Ltd and Range Resources Ltd. He also serves or has served on various boards, including Transnet, Mittal Steel SA, Ashesi University, Standard Bank of South Africa, Lonmin, the Commonwealth African Investment Fund (Comafin), the advisory council of the UN Secretary General’s Global Compact, President Olusegun Obasanjo’s International Investment Advisory Council on Nigeria, President Thabo Mbeki’s International Investment Advisory Council of South Africa. As well as his directorships, Jonah is a member of the advisory board of the London Business School.
I am asking Razak Kojo Opoku that if Mr. Sam K. Jonah with all the above qualities and positions cannot advice a Bawumia then, CVM which is a teething venture can’t talk on any issue in Ghana. Nor criticize anyone in any kind of leadership like he has frequently been doing. In our daily life we say ‘Monkeys paly by their sizes’, he is not close to Sir Sam Jonah to talk to him in such manner.
Mr. Apatsea Isaac Kwasi of CLDG is hereby informing Razak Opoku of CVM to retract and apologize to Sir Sam K. Jonah on his current release ‘Ghana not facing debt crises under Bawumia: Sam Jonah got it all wrong- CVM’.
