My 'Proceed On Leave' Was A Senseless Contrivance - Former NIA Exe Sec Jabs Board
LISTEN DEC 19, 2019

Former Executive Secretary of the National Identification Authority (NIA) says he has won a case against the governing board of the Authority.

Dr. William Ahadzie was relieved from his post in 2013 under the John Mahama-led administration after his appointment under John Atta Mills in 2009.

But in a Facebook post, Dr. Ahadzie said: “I proved in court that the 'proceed on leave' decision by the then Governing Board was a senseless contrivance between the Board, some misdirected staff working under me and some ill-informed persons in the high echelons of power.”

“Their action had no grounds except as a sinister scheme to lift me off the seat and plant stooges in my place,” he wrote.

He also thanked God for the said victory, adding “…but they that wait upon the LORD, shall renew their strength; they shall mount up wings as eagles; they shall run and not be weary; and they shall walk and not faint.”

MY VICTORY IN COURT.

Today December 18, 2019 marks a significant day in my life.

Let me begin this with Isaiah 40: 31.

But they that wait upon the LORD, shall renew their strength; they shall mount up wings as eagles; they shall run and not be weary; and they shall walk and not faint.

I secured a favourable judgement in court today in my case with the National Identification Authority. It's a judgement of RESTORATION and REDEMPTION. The learned judge ruled that all my entitlements from 2013 be restored. My name and image is also redeemed.

I proved in court that the 'proceed on leave' decision by the then Governing Board was a senseless contrivance between the Board, some misdirected staff working under me and some ill-informed persons in the high echelons of power. Their action had no grounds except as a sinister scheme to lift me off the seat and plant stooges in my place. Their action halted, indeed reversed the progress we were making to give Ghana a functioning National ID System. It led eventually to the decommissioning of the system we toiled to build and with that, an introduction of another system which was needless.

Over the first 4 years I tried every means possible to get a resolution to the matter with no success. I then took the matter to Court and having gone through several hearings, judgement was passed today in my favour. It didn't come easy, but it has come nontheless.

Those who were part of that evil scheme, should bow down their heads in shame and ask God for forgiveness. But I wish to thank them for strengthening my faith because I waited upon the LORD and he proved he is a living and a faithful God. He takes us through adversity to use our tests as testimonies.

He is simply an Awesome God. He is great and His miracles are mighty. He puts our adversaries to flight as He anoints us. It's been almost 7 years, but He has delivered on His promise.

May His name be praised for He is good ALL the time. Join me celebrate this goodness.
