The Board Chairman of Ghana Grid Company, (GRIDCo), Ambassador Kabral Blay-Amihere, has stated that the leadership of the company has put in place measures to ensure that the company’s mandate as the backbone of power delivery in Ghana remains consistent.
According to him, GRIDCo is committed to reliable power supply to Ghanaians.
Addressing delegates at the company’s 10th Annual General Meeting in Accra, he said that regular engagements with key stakeholders are ongoing to resolve the differences and ensure that Ghanaians enjoy consistent provision of power at all times.
“The Board and Management have spent the last three years restoring the needed stability to the operations of the company and I’m proud to say that we are on a revival to carry on our mandate without fail,” he said.
This is management’s first official comment following recent staff agitations over unpaid debts.
GRIDCo’s Senior Staff Association recently held a press conference demanding payment of unpaid debts totalling over GHS1 billion from key institutions including ECG, VALCO, and NEDCO.
They asked staff of the organization to withdraw all emergency services to push the government to settle the debt owed the company by ECG, VALCO, PDS, and NEDCO.
The union further threatened a strike action beginning December 4, 2019, if the government fails to heed to their demands.
However, Mr Amihere assured the senior staff that management is hopeful that if debts owed it are cleared, it would be profitable in the coming year.
