A pressure group calling itself ‘Save ECG Now’ is alleging that the Managing Director (MD) of the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG), Mr. Robert Dwamena, is in bed with government over the sale of the ECG.
According to the group, even though Mr. Dwamena was due to exit office, government extended his tenure by one year, so he could finish with the sale/privatization/concession deal, which he (Mr. Dwamena) had already started.
The group was of the view that a new MD may not agree to the move by the Government, hence the extension to enable the current MD to stay on for a year, saying “this was equally confirmed by the Deputy Power Minister, Mr. John Abdulai Jinapor, that the ECG Workers cannot call for the removal of the MD, whose tenure has been extended by one year.”
Mr Boye Williams, Spokesperson who spoke to OTECNEWS’ Nana Ama Agyemang spoke to for the group said their findings revealed that, there were some Directors of ECG and the Northern Electricity Distribution Company (NEDCo) who had resigned and were leading the course of the sale.
