Michael Addo, the SSNIT Deputy Director General, steps down

The SSNIT deputy director general, steps down with immediate effect. The Deputy Director General in charge of Finance and Administration at the Social Security and National Insurance Trust (SSNIT), Michael Addo, has tendered in his resignation letter.

3News sources familiar with the matter said Addo’s resignation stems from some tension between himself and the newly appointed Director General for the Trust, Kofi Bosompem Osafo-Maafo.

The sources added that Osafo-Maafo was allegedly mistreated during his tenure as a deputy, and his recent promotion to Director General prompted Addo’s decision to step down.

Mr. Addo’s resignation, according to the sources, came shortly after outgoing DG, Dr. John Ofori Tenkorang, presented his handing over notes to the Board of the Trust on Friday, April 12, 2024, before Monday’s deadline to vacate his position.

It would be recalled that President Akufo-Addo on Wednesday, April 9, terminated the appointment of Dr. Ofori Tenkorang. In his stead, the President appointed Kofi Bosompem Osafo-Maafo, the son of the former senior minister, Yaw Osafo-Maafo.

Osafo-Maafo’s appointment resulted in Pearl Nana Ama Darko, the Deputy Director General for Operations and Benefits, being reassigned to the role of Commissioner for Support Services at the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA).

Juliana Kpedekpo, therefore, took over from Pearl Nana Ama as the new Deputy Director General for Operations and Benefits.

Meanwhile, the President will appoint a new Deputy Director General for Investment and Development to replace Kofi Osafo-Maafo, as well as another deputy for Finance and Administration to take over from Michael Addo in the coming days.
