Privatise State-Owned Power Companies Now

Was it a wise idea to sell Ghana Telecom and Ghana Water Company Limited?

That was the most craziest thing we ever did.

You don't sell your house, because you have a problem at home. You face the problem and solve it.

We fail to take into consideration the long term strategic goals. We often want the easy way out, instead of facing the problem head-on.

The problems of Ghana Telecom (GT)and Ghana Water Company Limited were that of management and lack of government support.
When was the last time you ever heard that the top managers of a state owned company have been kicked out because of poor performance? NEVER. The various governments must also be blamed. When you don't adequately support a state owned company, how do you expect them to perform??

How much are they paying the foreign management companies?? If they paid their Ghanaian counterparts half (1/2)of that amount, can they not perform equally as good or better? Or don't Ghanaians have that management abilities??? (I want to know)
