Check Out Tilapia's Cartoon On GPGC Judgement Debt That Is Causing Stir Online

The Ghana Power Generation Company (GPGC) emergency power agreement was signed in July 2015 under the administration of His Excellency John Dramani Mahama. This agreement had cabinet and parliamentary approval. So how did this agreement resulted in a $170 million judgment debt?

The termination of the agreement leading to the tribunal award took place in 2018 under the watch of His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and his New Patriotic Party (NPP) administration. The Former Energy and Petroleum Minister under whose watch this agreement was signed, Mr. Armah-Kofi Buah has expressed disappointment in the administration of President Akufo-Addo for devasting an agreement he and his associate work so hard to achieve.

He argued that this agreement was to focus on addressing the power challenges and ensure a stable electricity supply but the associates of President Akufo-Addo including the incumbent Attorney General, Hon. Godfred Yeboah Dame was not able to properly defend the case in court. Now London court has thrown away out Attorney General, and others for sleeping on a $170 million case.

This judgment debt was imposed by a London commercial tribunal on behalf of Ghana Power Generation Company (GPGC) for wrongful termination of the contract. Some Ghanaians have also blamed the current Attorney General, Hon. Godfred Yeboah Dame for his hasty threats of investigation and prosecution. They argued that he and his associates including the Former Attorney General, Madam Gloria Akuffo should have studied the case well and defended it well in court.

It was upon this heartbreaking news that Tilapia The Cartoonist has drawn this cartoon to show what really transpired in this $170 million judgment debt that Ghana is facing now. In the photo below, Tilapia seems to suggest that it was the former Attorney General, Madam Gloria Akuffo who has 'fueled' this issue with her 'fire' leading to this huge judgment debt.
