The Junior and Senior Staff of the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) are demanding the immediate removal of their Managing Director, Mr Kwame Agyeman-Budu from office over alleged mismanagement of the company.
According to a Citi News report, the staff said they decided a joint National Executive Committee held last Friday at the ECG Training School in Tema.
They also alleged that several petitions to Mr Agyeman-Budu to involve its rank and file in revenue mobilization since 2020 have been ignored.
The workers claim the MD’s continuous stay at post will collapse the electricity distribution company because to them, “he is grossly deficient when it comes to matters relating to administrative and corporate governance”.
They also accuse their MD of breaching procurement processes.
“A clear example is the award of contracts of some Six (6) substations where the recommendations of the evaluation committee were sidestepped and awarded to other companies,” the Junior and Senior Staff Unions said in a statement.
They have therefore warned that if their concerns are not addressed by Friday, April 23, 2021, they will advise themselves.
