PMMC Boss Opare Hammond Reported Dead

10 minutes ago | Headlines PMMC Boss Opare Hammond Reported Dead By Modern Ghana

The death is reported of the Managing Director of the Precious Mineral Marketing Commission (PMMC) Mr. Opare Hammond.

A family source confirmed the incident to citinewsroom. He is said to have died on Friday at the Korle Bu Teaching hospital.

Opare Hammond was appointed MD of the mineral trading firm in 2017. He was a former Member of Parliament for the Adentan constituency.

His death comes as a surprise to many because he appeared physically fit. Although unconfirmed citinewsroom.com sources say he’s been battling with a condition known as thrombosis.

Thrombosis is the formation of a blood clot inside a blood vessel, obstructing the flow of blood through the circulatory system. It can as a result lead to a cardiac arrest.

Under his reign, the PMMC partnered the Ghana Royal Gold Limited Company to construct a state-owned gold refinery which is expected to create 1000 jobs this year, 2019.

Angry PMMC staff ask Nana Addo to sack MD and dissolve board

Some aggrieved workers of the PMMC in October 2018 called on President Nana Akufo-Addo to sack the Managing Director of the firm and dissolve the board.

The workers at the time claimed the MD, Kwadwo Opare Hammond, among other things had been circumventing the procurement processes of the company.

They claimed the company would collapse if the MD and the board were allowed to continue their work.
