In a statement on Saturday, April 13, the Director of Communications at the Presidency, Eugene Arhin, clarified that Dr Ofori-Tenkorang’s dismissal was not due to misconduct or malfeasance.

On Monday, April 8, President Akufo-Addo ended the tenure of Dr. Ofori Tenkorang as the Director-General of SSNIT.  He was directed to transfer his responsibilities to Kofi Bosompem Osafo-Maafo by Monday, April 15.
