Ghana: Resign or Be Sacked - Ghana Government to Power Minister

Power minister Dr. Kwabena Donkor has been given the option to resign from his post or be sacked by the President, AccraReport.com has learnt.

The decision, according to StarrFMonline.com sources within the corridors of power, was triggered by the conflicting reports regarding the supposed end to the power crisis by the Power ministry and the Ghana Grid Company (GRIDCo).

His fate is likely to be decided by close of business today, December 31, 2015, reliable sources reveal.

The Power Ministry in a statement Wednesday announced that the power crisis that has bedeviled Ghana for some years now had officially ended, but in a counter statement, head of GRIDCo William Amuna said the erratic power situation is not over.

The power minister in February this year promised to resign from his post if the power crisis is not fixed by the end of the year.

He made the promise days after he took over the newly established power ministry following his persistent attack on the Mahama administration over its handling of the crisis.

President Mahama in his state of the nation address in parliament promised to hold him to his promise.
