Hon. Emmanuel Kofi Buah, the Energy Minister has urged workers of the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) to keep calm as the decision by government and the ministry to reassign the MD, Rev. Ing William Hutton-Mensah is nothing personal.
According to him, the reassignment of the ECG boss is to ensure that there is rapid response to the needs Of Ghanaians, adding that nobody can second-guess a decision that has been taken by President Mahama in this case.
He insisted that the government will not sit idle for the $500 million investment from the Millennium Challenge Account into ECG modernization go down the drain; emphasizing that government is prepared to bring a real reform to ECG in order to render the service that Ghanaians need most.
Speaking in an interview with Kwami Sefa Kayi on Peace Fm’s Kokrokoo Morning Show, Hon. Kofi Buah said government is committed to ensuring that ECG is strengthened in all areas of its service delivery to satisfy Ghanaians, asking whether Ghanaians are satisfied with the load shedding and the customer services being provided by ECG.
He maintained that the removal of the former MD of ECG from his post has nothing to do with any person, stating that the interest of government lies with Ghanaians’; reminding workers to know that it is a privilege to work in any capacity they have been assigned to.
“We as a Ministry and government have every right to take decisions to protect the interest of Ghanaians and definitely certain decisions will be made. Nobody can second-guess decision that has been taken already by the President on ECG. I think we have to support ECG and make sure that it gives the service that is needed for the people of Ghana…..government is on the side of Ghanaians; people need a very good, efficient and responsive service from ECG. Can you say you are satisfied with the load shedding and the customer service of ECG? If you are satisfied then fine”, he stated.
