Fire Minister of Energy & Deputy AG on Ameri Scandal:Demo Inevitable!!

It is with pain that the Alliance for Accountable Governance(AFAG) writes to express our utter disgust at Ghana's worst contract of all times. We are disappointed in the minister of energy(Dr Kwabena Donkor) and the deputy attorney general(Hon Dominic Ayine) who signed and witnessed this contract respectively.

The contract is ridiculous. It put all obligation on the people of Ghana and at no cost to Ameri. Indeed the only obligation of Ameri is the cost of transport from the port to the installation site. The contract is not traditional of BOOT where normally the private entity will invest,generate returns and hand over appropriately when the period is due. AFAG's legal team is studying bit by by every provision in the contract. We look forward to a serial explanation on the contract to Ghanaians come January followed by mass actions.

This not withstanding,we are appalled by the parliamentary scrutiny of the contract.Ghanaians have been short changed. The level of corruption embedded in this worst contract of all times is too worrisome. It simply does not make sense for Ghanaians to be slapped with electricity tariff increase over over 60% only to uncover that we are been made to finance rogue trading.

We can assure the good people of Ghana that, in spite of the holidays ahead, this dastardly issue will not be made to rest. Come January AFAG will hold a series of press conferences and subsequently press forward for mass actions across the the 10 regions of the country to get Ghanaians informed about the effect of this scandal and the subsequent action of the president.

Woyome's scandal is non-comparable to this Ameri energy scandal. This is about 15Woyome. No way!

We call on the president to come clean on this issue with a series of actions. On the immediate we expect the president to fire the minister of energy and the deputy AG.

God save Ghana.
