Members of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Tema West Constituency in the Greater Accra Region have called on the President John Dramani Mahama, to as a matter of urgency ship out the Managing Director of the Electricity Company of Ghana, Mr. Robert Dwamena, in order to retain favor from the ECG staff in the forthcoming elections.

In an interview with Clement Adamu Nyaaba, PRO of the NDC Zongo Caucus in Tema West, the call on the President to axe the ECG Boss has become necessary after countless complaints and demonstrations from the workers of the ECG with regard to mismanagement and ill-treatment of staff by the Boss.

According to Clement, the staff of the ECG have proven with numerous facts indicating how incompetent the company`s Boss has been in executing his duties as Director of the company and also seeing to their welfare.

He noted that the ECG has over six thousand workers nationwide and a failure to do what they demand will jeopardize the chances of the NDC in winning the elections on the 7th of December when the county goes to the polls.

“We believe it is in the interest of the NDC and President Mahama to lose the vote of just the ECG Boss as compared to the entire ECG Staff and their dependants”, he explained further.

He posited that lot of work has gone into the NDC`s possible win of the forthcoming elections and nothing should be allowed to stand in its way.

“We will not allow one person`s vote to cause us to lose millions of votes that will slim our chances of winning the seat of government and for that matter, we have had every reason to join the ECG people in communicating their grievances to His Excellency”, they group added.

The workers, of ECG recently in a demonstration claimed that the MD celebrated his 60th birthday on September 28 and should have retired immediately, but he is still at post and they did not understand why.

“We have been informed by reliable sources that he has been given a one-year extension. That is what we are not happy about,” the workers said.

“We believe he has done his best but there is nothing more he can add at this stage. So we think it is good at this point in time that he should honorably go on retirement”, they added.
