Support economic rebuilding to retain your jobs — SIGA boss urges CEOs of state owned enterprises
The Director General of the State Interest and Governance Authority (SIGA), Amb Edward Boateng has issued a rallying call to all Chief Executive Officers of state owned enterprises to reflect on how they can all help in rebuilding the economy.
He said when this is successfully done, the government would hopefully break the eight and by trhat they would all stand the chance of retaining their jobs.
“We all sometimes talk as if the problem is somebody’s problem and not our problem but it is our problem because if the government goes out of power, most of us if not all will not retain our positions.
“So it is in our collective interest to reflect on how we can rebuild the economy so that hopefully we can break the eight and retain our jobs or get new ones,” he stated.
Amb Boateng was speaking at the SIGA Annual Stakeholder Meeting happening in Kwahu in the eastern region under the theme ‘time to reflect and rebuild.’
He emphasised that the country was not in normal times, urging the CEOs to play their part in jumpstarting the economy.
“We in this room control a substantial portion of the Ghanaian economy so let’s be positive that we can solve the problems in the economy,” he stated.
