Following false media reports suggesting confusion within the Ghana National Petroleum Corporation (GNPC), the Senior Staff Union (SSU) of GNPC is firmly backing their CEO, Mr Opoku-Ahweneeh Danquah, in his stellar leadership and is appalled by unsubstantiated publications.
In a statement released by the Senior Staff Union, said: “The Executive body of the Senior Staff Union wishes to state on record that we have not received any complaint or grievance whatsoever from any person or group regarding the conduct of our Chief Executive. Indeed, there is currently industrial harmony, and the prevailing atmosphere in the Corporation is one of calmness.”
Mr. Danquah has brought on board some positive energy to the operations of GNPC and is determinedly steering the corporation in the right direction. There is indeed a general sense of hope and great expectations amongst staff.
Contrary to false reports that the CEO has provided misleading information about the finances of GNPC and unprofessional conduct, Mr Danquah since taking over as CEO has actively instituted cost-saving measures and improved capacity building for staff in key areas to upgrade their knowledge and competencies to help GNPC execute its mandate as the National Oil Company of Ghana.
To effectively utilise the skillsets of staff and diversify their knowledge base, Mr. Danquah has made cross-functional movements consistent with industry practice as well as GNPC’s Corporate Plan in compliance with the Conditions of Service, after obtaining Board approval. These movements are aimed at energising the corporation to respond to current global trends in the oil and gas industry.
To enhance team bonding, unity, and camaraderie, he is enabling an environment through consistent staff engagement, especially with the Senior Executive Committee (ExCom), where there is open discourse for corporate advancement.
The management of GNPC and Staff assures the general public and all stakeholders that it is unwaveringly focused on its ultimate goal of increasing oil and gas reserves for the country and profoundly impacting the livelihoods of all Ghanaians.
