LISTEN HERE-President Mahama sacked Managing Director of the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG)

President John Dramani Mahama has sacked the Managing Director of the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG), Rev. Ing. William Hutton-Mensah, and has appointed Robert Dwamena as Acting Managing Director of the company. A statement signed by the Chief of Staff, Prosper Bani, said Rev. Ing. William Hutton-Mensah, who is on his annual leave, is to report to the Ministry of Energy and Petroleum for re-assignment. President Mahama has meanwhile asked the Omanhene of Abeadze and President of the Central Regional House of Chiefs, Daasebre Kwebu Ewusi VII, to act as Chairman of the Board of Directors of the ECG. His appointment follows the resignation of Tony Oteng Gyasi on health grounds. The country has been going through a serious power crisis, resulting in an intensive load shedding exercise, incurring the wrath of consumers. Mr. Dwamena, the Director of Procurements at the ECG, now acting Managing Director, started his career with the Engineering Directorate of the Company in 1982.
