The Director General at the Ghana Ports and Harbours Authority (GPHA) Paul Asare Ansah has been dismissed from his post.

He will be replaced by Michael Achagwe Luguje. Mr Luguje is currently the Secretary-General, Port Management Association for West and Central Africa, based in Nigeria.

According to Joy news reasons for Mr Ansah’s removal are not readily known. However, reports suggest that the dismissal was caused by a recent misunderstanding between workers' union of the Ports Authority and Board Chair, Peter Mac Manu.

The workers accused Mr Mac Manu of engaging in wrongful undertakings as well as running a family and friends’ administration.

But the Board Chairman denied all the allegations and asked his lawyers to write to the leaders of the union demanding a retraction and apology, failure to which will make him sue them.

Reports suggest that Mr Ansah was present at the press conference by the workers' union where the allegations against Mr Mac Manu were detailed, pitching him firmly against the Board Chairman who is a former Chairman of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP).
