Member of Parliament for Bongo Edward Bawa has stated that it will be immoral if it is proven that the Presidency backdated the letter announcing the appointment of a new Chief Executive for Ghana Cylinder Manufacturing Company Limited.
The allegation was made by the resigned Chief Executive of the Company Frances Asiam.
According to Frances Asiam the letter was backdated to 21 February 2023 to give the impression that she was fired before she issued her resignation letter.
She said she got a copy of the letter from the Presidency through a WhatsApp message sent her by the Energy Minister Matthew Opoku Prempeh after her resignation was made public.
Ms Asiam said the Energy Minister used the letter to taunt her in a series of WhatsApp messages.
To back up her allegation, Ms Asiam pointed to the date on the Energy Ministry stamp that was on the letter to confirm receipt by the ministry.
The stamp was dated 23 February 2023, the date when Ms Asiam resigned her position which meant the letter took two days to get to the Ministry.
Speaking on the Gold Morning Conversation on Radio Gold Bongo MP Edward Bawa said the anomalies on the face of the letter from the Presidency raises serious questions.
Edward Bawa said his experience working at the Energy Ministry makes it difficult for him to understand how the letter was received by the Energy Ministry two days after it was issued by the Secretary to the President Nana Asante Bediatuo.
He told Sena Nombo letters are stamped at the Ministry upon receipt and recorded by the dispatch riders from the Presidency as evidence that the letter has been received.
The MP said such stamps are appropriately dated as evidence of when the letter was received.
Edward Bawa said it would be immoral if the letter was backdated to disgrace Ms Asiam as the former GCMCL Boss was suggesting.
The letter issued and signed by Nana Asante Bediatuo, Secretary to the President has been in circulation since last Friday.
The letter announced one Genevieve Sackey as new CEO of GCMCL.
