The Executive Director of the Divestiture Implementation Committee (DIC) leaves office on Monday, two months after he officially notified the DIC Board and the Presidency, but the government is yet to get a replacement. Mr Benson Poku Adjei tendered in his resignation letter after he successfully secured a three-year international job in Sierra Leone.
The outgoing DIC scribe is due to head the Divestiture Agency in that country in about two months time. Efforts by the Presidency to find a competent, level-headed and versatile person to take over the administration of the agency had not yielded any positive results.
The secretary to the President, D. K. Osei is said to be frantically making moves to identify a replacement. Meanwhile, the Chairman of the DIC, Charles Nyanor who is also a Minister of State, takes over temporarily as the Executive Secretary
