The Institute of Energy Security (IES) has accused the Energy Ministry of telling lies over the destruction of some power installations in Tema.
According to the IES, the pipelines in question were filled with water and not gas, hence explanations that destruction was to blame for the erratic power supply are all lies.
The IES in a statement wants the Energy Ministry to render an unqualified apology to the people of Ghana.
“We call on the Ministry of Energy to apologize for deceiving Ghanaians into believing that pipelines under construction and filled with raw water are part of the accessories to the power sector installations, and that the destruction to the GRIDCo tower is a contributing factor to the recent Dumsor,” the statement noted.
The statement also asked the Ministry to provide proof of its claim that the recent developments were as a result of the activities of political saboteurs who were masterminding to impede government’s attempts to address the power cuts.
“The Ministry of Energy must desist from peddling further falsehood and compromising the work of the state security agencies in their quest to apprehend the criminals engage in the act of vandalism. And that if it is privy to any political sabotage, the Ministry must make its evidence available to the agencies tasked to unravel such circumstances,” the statement further revealed.
