The staff of the Electricity Company of Ghana’s Accra East Branch have laid down their tools in protest against the Managing Director of the company.

The workers have since the past few weeks been demanding the removal of the current Managing Director of the company, Kwame Agyeman-Budu over what they describe as “incompetence” on his part.

According to them, the continuous stay of Mr Kwame Agyeman Badu will not auger well for the company.

They also alleged that several petitions to Mr. Agyeman-Budu to involve its rank and file in revenue mobilization since 2020 have been ignored.

They insists the MD’s continuous stay at post will collapse the electricity distribution company because “he is grossly deficient when it comes to matters relating to administrative and corporate governance”, alleging also that he breaches procurement processes.

Meanwhile in an interview with Accra-based Citi Fm, an affected customer said ECG staff refused to attend to him.

“I am here to seek clarity on some challenges I am having with my meter but when I arrived here I was told they are embarking on a demonstration. This will not help the customers", said the unhappy customer.
