I support review of all power agreements – Deputy Minority Leader

The Deputy Minority Leader, James Klutse Avedzi has indicated his support for a review by the NPP government of all power agreements signed by the erstwhile NDC administration.

The Member of Parliament for Ketu North was among a stakeholder panel to review President Akufo-Addo’s State of the Nation Address on 3FM’s Morning show –Sunrise.

Speaking to Sunrise host Winston Amoah, Mr. Avedzi said, “I support [it], the President should review it. I believe strongly that he is doing it in the interest of Ghana. So if he thinks that there is any of those agreements that needs to be renegotiated that will ensure that we have a very low tariff for the people of this country, why not, I will support it fully.”

President Akufo-Addo, in his maiden State of the Nation address to Parliament on Tuesday, described the energy sector as being “heavily indebted” and as such, he will review all power agreements as part of moves aimed at easing government expenditure in the sector.
