Kwasi Agyei is new Controller and Accountant-General

A Chartered Accountant and a member of the Institute of Chartered Accountants, Ghana, Kwasi Agyei, has been appointed by President Nana Addo-Dankwa Akufo-Addo as the Controller and Accountant-General.


His appointment followed the resignation of Kwasi Kwaning-Bosompem, who was the Controller and Accountant-General (CAG) for close to five years. Mr Agyei, who assumed his new role after a short handover ceremony at the Treasury head office in Accra last Monday, thanked the immediate past controller for his “exceptional leadership” from which he said he had learnt a lot.


A statement signed by the Head of Public Relations of the Controller and Accountant-General, Cephas N. Dosoo, and released to the Daily Graphic, said Mr Agyei expressed appreciation to President Akufo-Addo and the Minister of Finance, Dr Mohammed Amin Adam, for the opportunity to serve the nation in that capacity.

Mr Agyei, according to the statement, said he was fully aware of the responsibilities and challenges ahead and called for the support and dedication of all staff of the department.

According to the statement, Mr Agyei observed that the success of every organisation depended largely on the happiness and well-being of its staff and gave an assurance that staff welfare was paramount to him.

It said he assured the staff of the department that he would create a work environment that fostered growth, recognised achievements and prioritised employee welfare to maintain high productivity and achieve goals.

In that regard, the statement said, Mr Agyei urged all staff of the department to support him to make CAGD a better place for all.


For his part, Mr Kwaning-Bosompem, the statement said, was excited that his successor had been appointed from within the department, as he believed that would serve as motivation to the staff of the department.

It said Mr Kwaning-Bosompem indicated that he had enjoyed massive support from staff of the department right from top management to the least unit and was very thankful for the gesture.

Mr Kwaning-Bosompem, the statement indicated, expressed his gratitude to President Akufo-Addo, the Head of Civil Service, the Public Service Commission, Chairman and all staff of the CAGD for their support.

The statement said the Deputy Controller in charge of Audit and Investigations, Wisdom Komlan Messan, on behalf of management and staff of the department, thanked the immediate past controller, Kwaning- Bosompem for his “exceptional leadership” and assured Mr Agyei of the support of the entire staff as he takes over the mantle.
