I’m genuine, creative, not greedy – Jospong Chair

Executive Chairman of the Jospong Group of Companies, Joseph Siaw Agyepong, has rejected comments against him that he is driven by greed.

“I don’t say that I’m greedy. One company is enough to take care of me and my five children. When I create a business, it’s because of employment,” he said on Tuesday, August 15.

Mr Siaw, who has a knack for providing solutions to societal challenges, owns over 40 companies including, Zoomlion Ghana Limited and the Road Safety Management Services Limited, which has been awarded the mandatory vehicle towing contract.

The controversial towing levy has raised eyebrows, with some critics suggesting that the Road Safety Management Services Limited should undertake the project as a private entity and not in partnership with government and insisting that all motorists pay the levy.

Mr. Agyapong stated in an interview on Joy FM on Tuesday, August 15, that he sees himself as, “Someone trying to create employment for people [and] to create an environment that will make people work.

“I consider myself as someone blessed and I have to share the blessing with society.”
