The nation’s premier distillery company, the Ghana Industrial Holding Corporation (GIHOC) under the management of Maxwell Kofi Jumah has held a staff durbar as part of efforts to engage workers to address some of their concerns and needs.
GIHOC Distilleries, established in 1958, operates under the Ministry of Trade and Industry.
The gathering brought together all workers and gave the Managing Director, Maxwell Kofi Jumah, the opportunity to know some of the challenges workers were facing.
During the interactions, workers who had one issue or the other were well served with deserving and appropriate responses by their MD, Mr. Maxwell Kofi Jumah.
This paved the way for the clearance of all doubts following a viral media publication by some so-called concerned faceless workers of GIHOC.
The workers were full of praises for the massive transformation GIHOC has witnessed ever since the assumption of Maxwell Kofi Jumah into office as the Managing Director (MD).
For transparency sake, the media including some top bloggers were also present at the function.
Mr. Maxwell Kofi Jumah used the platform to address some allegations leveled against him by that anonymous group.
The group accused the GIHOC MD of alleged mismanagement, age cheating among others.
“We were paying so much to a security company and I realized there was the need to cut down cost so we didn’t renew that security company’s contract. We are now using our own internal security,” he explained.
He continued, “Even in politics, I have helped some people and now they are ministers but I am still at GIHOC, but it does not mean I should envy them; I will rather support that person and always thank God for that. If you are parent you should always pray for your children to be better people,” the Managing Director of GIHOC, Maxwell Kofi Jumah said.
In an interview with the Media Relations Manager, Afua Foriwaa Boafoh, recalled that Maxwell Kofi Jumah, was appointed in 2016 after the general elections to rescue GIHOC when GIHOC was in total collapse.
“4 years into his administration, fortunes have improved as the company’s production level has shot up to about 400%. Under Maxwell Kofi Jumah, more and more people have been engaged, with better remuneration for workers. He has been reappointed again by the current government to manage affairs of the beverage company.”
