Ghana has once again been slapped with a 170 million dollar judgment debt by a UK court for terminating an energy agreement with an independent power producer, Ghana Power Generation Company (GPGC).
The Executive Director at the Institute for Energy Security (IES), Nana Amoasi, has said that the work done by Mr. Carlos Ahenkora and his team must be interrogated for their recommendation which led to the termination of the power purchasing agreement between Ghana and Ghana Power Generation Company.
Nana Amoasi made this statement on 'THE KEYPOINTS' program on TV3 this morning, June 26th, 2021, when he gave his opinion on the 170 million dollar judgment debt slapped on Ghana.
According to Nana Amoasi, the Carlos Ahenkora committee made an excuse with excess capacity for the basis to terminate the contract, but we have nothing like excess capacity on the grounds.
"The work of Mr. Carlos Ahenkora and his team must be interrogated. They must answer Ghanaians how they arrived at the conclusions of the 18 million dollars as one-time payment which turned out not to be right." He said
He added that It's in the books that whatever we have as installed capacity cannot be used as excess capacity. So, Carlos Ahenkora and his team shouldn't have used excess capacity as the basis for terminating the power purchasing agreement with Ghana Power Generation Company.
