Salaries paid IT boss to be retrieved

Sources indicate that the SSNIT board of trustees will hold a meeting on Wednesday (August 30, 2017). A prominent agenda at the meeting will be the fate of the interdicted SSNIT IT boss.

According to Accra-based Joy FM, the SSNIT board of trustees will hold a meeting on Wednesday (August 30, 2017). A prominent agenda at the meeting will be the fate of the SSNIT IT boss.

The head of SSNIT’s Management Information Systems, Dr Caleb Afaglo has been interdicted for presenting forged documents for the job.

The Economic and Organised Crimes Office (EOCO) is investigating this development.

The forged documents were uncovered during EOCO’s investigation into Dr Afaglo’s role in the controversial $72 million digitization contract which has caused public outrage.

Dr Afaglo was employed 2015. In his CV, he stated that he had worked with GLICO Insurance, telco giant MTN and Dominion University as head of IT department.

However, EOCO has said that he was allegedly dismissed from the three organisations for presenting fake documents.

It is alleged that the authorities at the Dominion University discovered the forgery after they applied for an accreditation at National Accreditation Board.

Sources at SSNIT indicate that Dr Afaglo was given the position of General Manager of the MIS because of his ‘impeccable’ credentials.

He started his job after phases one and two of the Operational Business Suite (OBS) had been implemented.

SSNIT procured a software system at $72million.

The Operation Business Suit (OBS) system was aimed at enhancing the pension scheme’s service delivery to its customers in all its branches across the country.

The Economic and Organised Crime Organisation (EOCO) is currently investigating 5 SSNIT staff for their involvement in the acquisition of an OBS software for the Trust at $72 million.
