Bice Osei Kuffour


Ghana Post, led by Managing Director Bice Osei Kuffour, is spreading love through the ‘Val’s on Wheels’ programme across the country.

This year, the initiative involves the distribution of one million chocolates nationwide, showcasing the significance of National Chocolate Day and championing locally produced chocolates.

During media engagements, Mr. Osei Kuffour shared insights into the programme’s origin and its success in elevating the Ghana Post brand.

The third edition takes a comprehensive approach, reaching out to the media, incarcerated individuals, and the general public.

Gratitude extends to the media as the Fourth Estate, and chocolates find their way to traders, market women, street hawkers, taxi drivers, and others in communities with post offices.

He stressed, “The media remains a very important institution which must be celebrated at all times and we of Ghana Post have chosen this day to celebrate them as the Fourth Estate of the realm.

“We are therefore giving out gifts of Ghana-made chocolates to express our gratitude for their very important role in nation building. We are also distributing chocolates to traders, market women, street hawkers, taxi drivers, etc operating in communities with Post offices.”

Encouraging corporate participation, Bice Osei Kuffour emphasised the economic potential of National Chocolate Day. Alongside this, he introduced the user-friendly ‘Speedlink Delivery’ app, now available on the Play Store.

This app allows patrons to conveniently subscribe to courier services from the comfort of their homes, marking a step towards modernising Ghana Post’s services.

Expressing gratitude to Ghanaians for their business, Mr. Osei Kuffour outlined the diverse services Ghana Post offers to Ghanaians abroad, urging them to patronise the postal service. Notably, he emphasised Ghana Post’s capability to deliver parcels to continents across the globe.

“Due to the active nature of Ghana Post, Ghana Post has made it possible for persons abroad to eat their bush-meat soups on Saturdays and Sundays because people send their loved ones Ghanaian foodstuff through Ghana Post.

“At Ghana Post, we deliver to anywhere across the globe. Again, at Ghana Post, aside from parcel service, we have an EMS service where we can deliver goods to someone abroad within five days or less,” he stated.

In a heartening response, taxi drivers who received chocolates expressed their appreciation for Bice Osei Kuffour’s initiative, commending him for the thoughtful gesture.

As a testament to the positive impact, these drivers shared stories of how the chocolates became a delightful surprise for their passengers, enhancing the overall experience of their services.
