The Ranking Member on Parliament’s Mines and Energy Committee, Adam Mutawakilu says the government is planning to return to the Power Distribution Services (PDS) to steer the distribution of power in Ghana.
According to the Damango lawmaker, the government plots to enter a weak defence in a recent suit by PDS which will make it easier for the company to be reinstated.
Addressing the press, Adam Matawakilu, advised the government to stop the move to bring back PDS.
“Recently, the Ministry of Information came out and said that PDS has taken the government to court. And if you read between the lines, you recognise the agenda they (NPP) have if they are to be voted for in December 7, 2020, general election.”
“They have now restructured PDS, planned it and asked the company to take the government to court, so they put up a strong defence to take over ECG again. So it is clear that they still have an agenda to take back ECG; our strategic asset, so that family and friends will once again come and take over.”
The agreement between the government and PDS was terminated due to what was termed fundamental and material breaches.
