Energy Minister must resign – Franklin Cudjoe

Executive Director of IMANI Center for Policy & Education, Franklin Cudjoe, has called for the resignation of the Energy Minister, Emmanuel Kofi Buah for non-performance.
Mr. Cudjoe said the Energy Minster has failed to fix the country’s energy crisis since he was appointed into office.
“He [Energy Minister] has failed to proffer any serious vision, futuristic solution to the energy crisis; look at the demeanor, look at the public statement, none of them since this man was made a minister have been made in a manner that would give some hope to the business community or ordinary people to be able to plan…,’’ he said.
The president and founder of IMANI Ghana made this assertion on Citi FM’s news analysis programme, The Big Issue on Saturday. According to him, the ministry has failed in all predictions and timelines given. ‘’The ministry sat down and allowed the three entities; VRA, GRIDCo and ECG to be miscommunicating then I am saying that there is no coherence in thought, in concept, in application of even that thought process…,’’ he added.
