Some workers of the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) have alleged that there was a conspiracy to get the former Managing Director of the company sacked.
According to them, they have every reason to believe their claims because since the dismissal of their boss, there is a sudden improvement in the energy situation in the country.
“Why is it that we were having these power outages and having low rates in the transmission, and all of a sudden, when the Managing Director was relieved of his post, things picked up?” asked the chairman of the workers union of the ECG at the Accra East Region office, Benjamin Kanusey.
Some workers of ECG have been demonstrating since last Friday over the removal of their Managing Director, Rev. Ing. William Hutton-Mensah.
Rev. Hutton-Mensah was in a statement from the Chief of Staff at the Presidency, Prosper Bani, was ordered to report to the Energy Ministry for re-assignment.
The Head of Procurement of ECG, Robert Dwamena has since been appointed to act.
But the ECG workers are demanding the re-instatement of their former boss and threatening to cut off power to the whole country should their demand not be met.
Speaking on Eyewitness News, Benjamin Kanusey clarified that they are not making any threats but they are “only pleading; we are not forcing government.”
“We know the man, we think there are other forces that have fallen from somewhere trying to soil the good work that the man has done,” he claimed.
Kanusey further pointed out that the workers are suspicious of the sudden improvement in energy distribution by the ECG.
