Political life
P. V. Obeng served as the chairman of the Committee of Secretaries under the Provisional National Defence Council regime (PNDC) from 1982?1992.
He served as Presidential Adviser on Governmental Affairs under the National Democratic Congress (NDC ) from 1992- 1997.
P.V. Obeng also served as Chairman of the Ghana Investment Promotion Council (G.I.P.C.) FROM 1992- 1997.
In Addition, P.V. is a currently serving as director on the Board of Guinness Ghana Limited.
He has been recently nominated by President Mahama as a Senior Presidential Adviser at the Presidency.
He served for many years in the Rawlings PNDC as Coordinating Secretary and Advisor on Governmental Affairs ( a virtual Prime Minister or Second-in-Command), among many others that exposed him to the inner workings of government.
PV Obeng served in diverse capacities, even when he fell out with Rawlings and left the seat of government. We remember him as heading the National Development Planning Commission under Kufuor, and being a high-ranking member of the Transitional Team that worked to install the late President Mills in office.
Of course, PV Obeng is no mean politician. He is a political heavy weight who easily awes. I remember Rawlings’ taunting of the opposition NPP leaders that PV Obeng was worth more than 10 of them rolled into one!
