Demonstrate to us that you are capable – ECG told

The Public Interest and Accountability Committee (PIAC) believes the suspension of the Concession Agreement between the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) and the Power Distribution Services (PDS) is an opportunity for ECG to show that it is indeed capable.

Chairman of PIAC, Dr Steve Manteaw on Asempa FM’s Ekosi Sen show is, therefore, charging the ECG to prove that it is capable of discharging its duties when given the opportunity fully.

“Now that ECG is taking over after PDS fiasco with an entire tariff adjustment, there is an opportunity for ECG to demonstrate to Ghanaians that it is capable,” he said.

The government suspended the concession agreement with PDS last Monday for what it described as “fundamental and material breaches of PDS’ obligation in the provision of Payment Securities for the transaction.”

Government says it has formally commenced a full-scale inquiry into the detected breaches on the PDS contract and has disclosed the investigations would be completed within 30 days.

However, Dr Manteaw is of the view that in order to safeguard the integrity of the investigative process, it should be bi-partisan.

To him, one sided investigations by the government would only compromise the investigations politically.
