President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has appointed engineer Samuel Boakye-Appiah as new Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG).
Ing. Boakye-Appiah will act as caretaker CEO until a substantive person is approved. “As a caretaker CEO, you will not take decisions that have policy implications until a substantive governing board is in place,” a letter written to the appointee by Minister of Energy Boakye Agyarko said.
“You may refer such policy related decisions to the Ministry for prior approval,” the letter sighted by 3news, further said. Ing. Boakye-Appiah takes over from Robert Dwamena, who was the Managing Director of the Company.
Until his appointment, Ing. Boakye-Appiah was the Director of Network Projects at ECG.
