Electrical Contractors Association in the West African nation, Ghana, have welcomed the decision by the Akufo-Addo administration to terminate the concession agreement signed between Electricity Company of Ghana(ECG) and Meralco led Power Distribution Services(PDS) Ghana Limited.
In a press statement signed by the President of the Association Nana Addo Tetebo , it said: “we hereby write to show our appreciation to the Government of Ghana for its swift, albeit meticulous approach in terminating the concession agreement between the Electricity Company of Ghana and the Power Distribution Services Limited.
“We are in full fledged support of the Government as ECG resumes full operational and financial control of the electricity distribution business in the Southern Zone of Ghana.
We as contractors are very elated as our issues of non-payment of contracts are expected to be put to rest within the shortest possible time as calm has been restored by the Government.
If ECG does things right in terms of improving efficiency and reducing distribution losses the electricity business in Ghana needs no concession,” the statement said.
“We hope and pray that, with the current trend of events, the E.C.G will improve their ways and manage the electricity business in the interest of Ghanaians,” the statement concluded.
