Ghana Post is the company responsible for postal service in Ghana and a member of the West African Postal Conference.[2]

History[edit]

On January 26, 2017, employees of Ghana Post publicly protested against the current management, leveling accusations of embezzlement.[3] Some of the Ghana Post employees accused Eric Yao, then Managing Director, of colluding with Head of ICT, Godfred Aboagye, and director of finance and administration, Solomon Agyeito, to embezzle funds.[4] Aboagye was promptly removed from his job and put under investigation for embezzlement.[4][5]

In the following month the Government of Ghana removed Yao from his post and appointed James Y. A. Kwofie as the Acting Managing Director with effect on February 22, 2017.[6]
