The debilitating outcome it has on our economic system and to a massive extent our national survival has develop into a bitter subject on the mouths of numerous Ghanaians as we head into the December 2020 basic elections.
In what commenced like a Kumawood film, president Akuffo Addo and his de facto-prime minister-cousin Gabby Asare Otchere Darko phase-managed the running down of Ghana’s power sector as a result of a dim concessionaire arrangement with a hurriedly fashioned consortium, Electric power Distribution Services (PDS). Eyebrows were raised from this grand mafia plan allegedly involving refined loved ones customers of the President like the Finance Minister Ken Ofori Atta and Gabby Asare Otchere Darko. These individuals have been unperturbed when there was countrywide outcry towards their clear nationwide theft scheme.
PDS came to choose about the electric power distribution in the southern part of the nation from the Energy Enterprise of Ghana. Just after thousands and thousands of Cedis were being milked from very poor Ghanaian pockets, alarm began to blow when a barber whose title was utilized to loot greater part shares determined to just take far more booty. Revelations emerged from their discussions about how to share the spoils from the syndicated procedure. The president was ominously exposed as the nation roared in opposition to his administration for the grand theft.
President Akufo-Addo refused to heed to calls for the cancellation of the stinking PDS offer. He instead jetted off to Angola to seek yet another crony investor to get more than the PDS less than a new name. This failed as the citizens mounted more heat on the President. Ultimately in Oct previous 12 months, a grand scheme was created to deceive Ghanaians that the PDS-ECG concessionaire agreement was cancelled. Ghana lost a whopping $190million from the Millennium Problem Company, a second tranche of allocations intended for Ghana to enhance its electricity sector.
The surprising advancement injuriously dazed the Akuffo Addo administration to carry on to conceal the authentic status of PDS in the region from the men and women. Info about PDS belongings are scarce to acquire. The Electrical power Organization of Ghana troubles PDS receipts to shoppers on electric power purchase even although that consortium is lawfully lifeless as significantly as its settlement with ECG is worried. How they continue on to situation receipts is a mystery we do not fully grasp still.
Not long ago Impartial Electric power Producers (IPPs) threatened to minimize electric power source and plunge the place into dumsor again. These vendors were being paid out of all their money owed by PDS we ended up told but right now it is emanating from the horses’ possess mouths that they are nevertheless owed monies purportedly settled by PDS. So the puzzling issues burdening everyone are:
- Is PDS doing the job underground to milk the national technique?
- Is it accurate the cronies powering this Babylonian consortium have been sharing booties suitcases in London from their midnight operations in Ghana?
- Is it not genuine that these darkish things to do of underground PDS are securing funds for Akuffo Addo to permit his greed to continue in an unattainable power to perpetuate the obnoxious state capture he and his cohorts are handling?
- When will Ghanaians be freed from this scandalous thieving hegemony?
Perfectly, the thoughts may well not end but obviously an solution to the past a person is computerized! 7th December, 2020 Ghanaians have an prospect to take out the pampers from every single base and discover the watery stools there and how they stink. God help us!
