Genevieve Sackey to take over Ghana Cylinder Manufacturing Company

This nomination is contained in a letter dated February, 21st and signed by the Executive Secretary to the President, Nana Bediatuo Asante.

“Kindly take the necessary steps to regularise the said appointment in accordance with the relevant provisions of the Companies Act 2019 (Act 992) and the regulations of the Company,” portions of the release stated.

Nana Bediatuo Asante extended to the new MD, “the President’s best wishes.”

Genevieve Sackey’s nomination comes after the immediate past CEO, Frances Essiam resigned.

Explaining the rationale behind her resignation, Madam Ewurabena Essiam said she took the decision because of interference in her work by the Minister for Energy, Dr Matthew Opoku-Prempeh.

According to her, she decided to enter into an agreement with Ghana Gas – a decision she claimed the Energy Minister kicked against.

She alleged that, Dr Opoku-Prempeh told her that another agency has been asked to take over the management of GCMCL.

This development, a peeved Madam Essiam, maintained is an affront to the hard work she has put into making the company a viable one.

“I am a very principled person, so I have resigned for him to take over and do what he wants to do,” she stated in an interview on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen programme on Friday.
