Institute for Energy Security (IES) is demanding the dismissal of deputy energy ministers.
IES called on the president to with immediate effect dismiss the deputies just as the sector minister Boakye Agyarko was sacked.
According to the IES, the deputies, Dr. Mohammed Amin Adam Anta, William Owuraku Aidoo and Joseph Cudjoe also worked with Mr. Agyarko on the said AMERI novation deal that cost Mr. Agyarko his job.
In a statement copied to citinewsroom.com, IES said “Boakye Agyarko doesn’t work alone.”
“It is common knowledge that the Energy Minister, Mr. Boakye Agyarko doesn’t work alone. The Honorable Minister, in addition to his three deputies, worked with a 7-member committee comprised of representatives from the PURC, Ministry of Finance, VRA and the Attorney-General who recommended the Novation Amendment Agreement to the Minister who in turn forwarded same to the President,” it said.
“IES calls on the President to sack all the three Deputy Ministers of Energy, namely; Dr. Mohammed Amin Adam Anta (in charge of Petroleum), Hon. William Owuraku Aidoo (in charge of Power), and Hon. Joseph Cudjoe (in charge of Finance and Infrastructure). IES will be very shocked if any of these persons is given the opportunity to become the substantive Minister of Energy. We also ask that the Committee should not be left off the hook,” the statement said,” IES added.
