COCOBOD denies ‘iPad keyboard’ allegation

The Ghana Cocoa Board (COCOBOD) says its decision to purchase iPad keyboard for Board of Directors was to limit paper and stationary use. The purchase of the device was to enhance productivity and collaboration among members.

In a news release dated April 1, 2024, the COCOBOD said it has become necessary to clarify this information due to widely circulated memo originating from the Information Systems Department of the Board.

It explained that the said memo was a proposal requesting management to approve the procurement of iPad keyboards for members of the Board of Directors.

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, while at the same time, enhancing 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 stated.
