My sons are over qualified for the offices they are occupying – Osafo-Maafo

The communication bureau of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has fingered Senior Minister Osafo-Maafo’s whose two sons are currently occupying ‘strategic’ positions newly created for their sake at NCA and SSNIT.

Kofi Bosompem Osafo-Maafo is Deputy Director-General in-charge of Investment & Development at the Social Security and National Insurance Trust (SSNIT) and Kwadwo Gyamfi Osafo-Maafo is Deputy Director, in-charge of Cyber Security at the National Communications Authority (NCA), all in 2017.

Mr. Osafo-Maafo in defending his sons insists last year that his two sons working at SSNIT and NCA are occupying their positions by merit and not because of his stature and status in government.

“My sons are overqualified for the offices they are occupying at the moment. One of them was one time the only black Director of the HSBC Bank at the age of about 35 years, he was actually poached to come and do the work here and not just because he’s my child. He made first-class twice in Michigan in the US, he was given a job, he later said he was fed up with staying in America and so came back home to Ghana. He lectured at Ashesi University and you can ask Ashesi for his performance.

“…They advertised for the job at NCA and I think he topped the interview. No one should suffer because he’s the child of Osafo-Maafo, if the person is good, he’s good. Why should it be a disadvantage to be an Osafo-Maafo.”

“Kofi had returned home abroad after schooling and was looking for a job prior to his appointment at SSNIT, Kwadwo, until the advent of the Akufo-Addo government, was working as a Computer Science Lecturer at the Ashesi University College”, he insisted.
