The Minority in Parliament has again, strongly opposed another bold decision by the ruling Akufo-Addo government to move the Ameri Power plant to Kumasi at an alleged cost of $35M. The Minority are of the view that, for the country to save money, the plant should be moved to the Volta River Authority instead of Kumasi in the Ashanti Region.

The Akufo-Addo government has early started that they will move the Ameri power plant from Aboadze to Kumasi in the Ashanti Region. A decision, the minority has also expressed their strong opposition.

John Jinapor, a ranking member of the mines and energy committee in Parliament addressed the media in Parliament and revealed the minority’s opposition to this Akufo-Addo decision.

“We wish to state as a Minority that we are vehemently opposed to the whole idea of spending a whopping $35 million dollars, which translates to over GH¢280 million. We call on the government to transfer that plant to the Volta River Authority, as was originally envisaged.”

“The VRA has the capacity to handle and manage the plant. We will use every parliamentary process to ensure that this illegitimate way of appropriating the Ameri plant to cronies will not be tolerated, and we will do everything within our means to ensure that we live up to expectation.” John Jinapor boldly revealed this.
