Senyo Hosi writes : ‘sex for grades’ scandal

Mr. Senyo Kwasi Hosi is the first Chief Executive Officer of the Ghana Chamber of Bulk Oil Distributors

1. My heart goes to the many victims of abuse. You deserve more protection and support from our governance system. Never should your body, your dignity be a forced subject of a trade for assistance that you require or services and benefits you deserve.

2. To us the few among the 29 million Ghanaians who are in authority or positions of influence or power, we should be reminded that we are not the smartest nor necessarily the best. We are rather privileged and called to a position of service, that we might constructively impact the lives we encounter, emancipate many to surpass us and be stepping stones for the realisation of the dreams of many and the optimisation of the potentials of our fellow humans.

It has provided a voice to the many voiceless and suppressed siblings, friends, children, Ghanaians and fellow humans.
