Speaking to Starr News, the spokesperson for the Ellembelle youth group, Felix Dickson said Dr Asante was untrustworthy, and as such should not be responsible for managing the affairs of the company.

"We don’t want him because for every mess that has been created in the company, he is also part of it. If Ghana gas didn’t go well, he is part of the problem since he was part of the top hierarchy of the company and as a consultant, he gave all the consultancy advice," he said.

The youth further alleged Dr. Asante was part of the “corrupt activities” during the NDC era, when he served as a Deputy Director in charge of Technical services, and also acted as a consultant.

Meanwhile, Dr. Asante is expected to take up his new post, as he replaces Dr George Sipa Yankey.

Dr. Asante was the technical Director of Ghana’s first Gas Infrastructure project and developed the gas infrastructure master plan for Ghana in 2008.
