President Nana Akufo-Addo has appointed former Minister for Chieftaincy and Religious Affairs, Kofi Dzamesi as the CEO of Bui Power Authority.
His appointment was confirmed in a letter signed by the Chief of Staff, Akosua Frema Osei-Opare on July 30, 2021.
“Pursuant to Section 9 (2) of the Bui Power Authority Act, 2007 (Act 740), I am pleased to inform you that the President has appointed you to act as the Chief Executive Officer of the Authority pending receipt of the constitutionally required advice of the Governing Board of the Authority,” the letter stated.
He takes over from Fred Oware, a former National Vice Chairman of NPP.
Dzamesi, a leading figure of the NPP in the Volta Region, was not appointed as a minister in Akufo-Addo’s second term. This led to a petition from chiefs and supporters of Dzamesi for the president to give him a ministerial position.
