The Industrial and Commercial Workers Union (ICU) is calling for the removal of the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Ghana Cocoa Board (COCOBOD), Dr Stephen K. Opuni from office.

The workers, clad in red garments and wielding placards gathered, at the Labour Ministry, Thursday to present a petition to the Employment and Labour Relations Minister, Haruna Iddrisu.

Some of the messages on the placards read: “Corruption at COCOBOD”, “Dr Opuni stop destroying COCOBOD”, “Sharp decline of cocoa industry under Dr Opuni’s tenure.”
