We’ve Not Procured Ipad Keyboards – COCOBOD

Joseph Boahen Aidoo


The Ghana Cocoa Board (COCOBOD) management has said the company has not approved the procurement of Ipad keyboards for its Board of Directors as widely circulated.

In a statement issued and signed by the Public Affairs Department yesterday, April 1, 2024, said COCOBOD has taken notice of a widely circulated memo originating from the Information Systems Department  of the Board where a request was made to management to purchase Ipad keyboards for its Board of Directors.

It said “the request to purchase Ipad keyboards was based on the board’s adoption of the “CONVENE” App which is part of efforts to reduce the use of paper and stationary during Board meetings.

It said the move would also help enhance productivity and collaboration among members.

“We wish to emphasise that management has not sanctioned the procurement of the keyboards, and consequently, no procurement transactions have taken place,” it added.
