I am stubborn but I’ve not been fired– Lord Commey

Director of Operations at the Presidency, Lord Commey has dispelled rumour that he has been fired by the President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

A statement circulating on social media indicates that Mr Commey has been relieved of his post.

But speaking on Accra-based Asempa FM, the former National Organiser of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) said though he’s stubborn, the President had confidence in him hence his appointment.

“People say I’m stubborn and yes I’m stubborn because President Akufo-Addo has confidence in me and that’s why he appointed me. And anyone that will frustrate your work to prevent you from achieving your goals must be crushed or else you won’t get there,’ he stated.

The Director of Operations at the Presidency accused his detractors of behind the rumour adding that he’s not perturbed about the bad mouthing.

“In the performance of your duties you might step on some toes, which is accepted. You can even deliberately step on toes to achieve results and apologise afterwards because we need to get results. If that is why people are badmouthing me then too bad and that is unfortunate, but that will not deter me from doing what I have to do and have been doing in this country’s politics for the past 25 years,’ he said.

He assured that the Akufo-Addo’s government will not disappoint Ghanaians.

“In spite of all the criticism, they also agree I’m good at my job. So please it’s an appeal to all Ghanaians that at this stage of the new change, the assurance is we wouldn’t do anything to disappoint Ghanaians,” he indicated.
