Ofori-Atta, Amewu must resign Over PDS Scandal – NDC Demands
The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) is demanding resignation or dismissal of Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta and, Energy Minister, Peter Amewu and the dissolution of ECG and MiDA board over the PDS fiasco.
Addressing the media Monday, General Secretary for the party Johnson Asiedu Nketiah accused the Nana Addo administration of attempts to reappropriate shares to cronies through the proposed restrictive tendering.
The PDS was finally terminated by the Akufo-Addo government in a statement dated Friday, October 18 which communicated the termination of the 25-year power concession agreement with PDS over irregularities found with the company’s demand guarantee.
The move comes months after the Ghana Government announced a suspension of the contract but still watched on as PDS did business with ECG under an arrangement shrouded with confusion.
“Ofori Atta proposes the use of a restrictive tendering process to replace PDS, this is laughable, and I want to say that this is not an option that Ghanaians and the MCC should even consider…we are interested in protecting the interest of Ghana and they are not.
“Ghanaians should never trust the very same Ofori Atta, Keli Gadzekpo, Dr Bawumia and President Akufo-Addo who caused this PDS mess to do a thorough job, there is too much corruption in their DNA,” Mr Nketia said.
