Tensions have flared at the headquarters of the electricity company of Ghana, so much that the police have been called to disperse the crowd of protesters. The protests are by the workers of the ECG who are demanding the removal of the current Managing Director, Robert Dwamena, who they claim has overstayed his tenure in the company.
The workers have complained that they disagree with the one-year extension accorded to Mr. Dwamena. The protests were interrupted by the police who ordered the crowd to disperse. Reports indicate that the workers broke one of the glass doors when they were refused entry into the building. They have moved their protests to the office of the Trade Union Congress (TUC) following orders from the police.
"We have been informed by reliable sources that he has been given a one-year extension. That is what we are not happy about,” one worker said.
They added that as much as they appreciate the work done by Robert Dwamena, his time in office is over and they would like him to leave.
Only a few weeks ago, the workers of the ECG went on strike against the supposed sale of the company. They only recently resumed services to consumers. There is still no new information on the sale of the company.
