Staff of the National Identification Authority (NIA) have petitioned President Akufo-Addo to sack the Authority’s Executive Secretary, Professor Kenneth Attafuah.

In a petiton dated July 1 to the President, they cite issues of poor leadership and unfair labour practices as the basis for the petition.

“His staff have absolutely lost trust in his administration and can no longer work with him in confidence. These coupled with infractions in the labour laws and SSNIT Acts are enough justifications for his immediate removal from office without further delays,” the petition said.
