- Energy Minister John Peter Amewu, has served notice to all CEOs of state institutions under his supervision who cannot adhere to his instructions
- Mr Amewu was disappointed after the CEOs asked their heads of department to represent them instead of being there themselves for a crunch meeting
Ghana’s Energy Minister John Peter Amewu, has issued a strict warning to Chief Executive Officers (CEOs) of state institutions under his ministry who fail to adhere to his instructions.
The notice by Amewu is because CEOs of the Volta River Authority (VRA), Ghana National Gas Company (Ghana Gas), and the Ghana National Petroleum Corporation (GNPC), failed to show up for a scheduled visit to the Aboadze Terminal Plant.
Reports say even though the minister had given prior notice to the CEOs, they failed to show up but instead assigned their respective heads of department to meet him.

An unhappy Amewu told the gathering that: “these CEOs in this country, it is time something is done seriously about them, and for me, I am not going to sit down and work with Chief Executives that will not be prepared to listen to me. Before I am gone, a Chief Executive will go; I am not going to entertain that”.
The minister who was on a tour of some energy plants and facility quizzed, what could be more important than taking a decision to prevent government from losing $40 million every month if the Karpower plant at Tema is not relocated to Aboadze, for which reason he convened the meeting to deliberate over it.
Mr Amewu has been one, if not, the best minister of the Akufo-Addo administration. In 2017, John Peter Amewu was awarded the best performing minister by the Pan-African Enterprise and Achievers Award as the Lands Minister.
