This follows the expiration of his contract of service.

“The President thanks you for your service to the state and wishes you well in your future endeavours.”

Col Damoah has been embroiled in a controversy after he was captured in the Labianca Food scandal which was uncovered by the Office of the Special Prosecutor (OSP).

This was after the OSP recovered over GHC1 million GHC1,074, 627.15) from Labianca Foods in unpaid import duties, a scandal involving a company belong to a Council of State member.

In his view, the report is ‘hollow and actuated by malice’.
