The Christian Council wants a neutral committee to resolve the Krobo power crisis.

Apostle Dr S.K. Atem, Acting General Secretary of the Christian Council, has expressed concern about the leadership of the committee formed to resolve power issues in the Krobo enclave.

The government formed the committee through the Energy Ministry to mediate an agreement between the Electricity Company of Ghana and the power distributor's customers.

Last Tuesday, the traditional authorities of the Krobo land, the Member of Parliament for the area, the Ministry of Energy, and ECG met to discuss the tensions.

This is in response to developments in the area that led to the Electricity Company of Ghana's (ECG) decision to cut power supply to communities due to staff insecurity and tampering with the company's power systems.

However, Apostle Dr. S.K. Atem, an opinion leader in the affected communities of Lower Manya and Yilo Krobo municipalities, is disappointed that the ECG's Managing Director has been appointed as the committee's chairperson.

He argued that because the ECG is directly involved in the conflict in the affected communities, it is inappropriate for Mr. Samuel Dubik Masubir Mahama, the company's newly appointed Managing Director, to steer the committee's affairs.

Mr. Dubik Mahama, he claims, is already prejudiced due to his direct involvement in the conflict. "How will the truth triumph in these circumstances?" Dr. S.K. Atem interrogated, adding, "it is impossible."

As a result, he requested that the committee appoint a neutral or independent person to mediate the conflict between the factions involved in order to come up with a long-term solution to the impasse.
