The Deputy Ranking Member of the Communications Committee of Parliament, Samuel Nartey George, is asking government to institute a forensic investigations into activities of some staff at the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) as a matter of urgency.
He said information he has gathered recently suggests that some staff, particularly at the IT Department, are engaging in illicit moves, raking into their personal vaults GH¢200 million every month.
In a post on Sunday, the Ningo-Prampram lawmaker said the Managing Director of the Company, Samuel Dubik Masubir Mahama, got wind of this and in his attempt to investigate it, suffered sabotage, culminating in the disruptions in the prepaid metering system recently.
Find the write-up below:
The challenges with the ECG are extremely serious. The attack on their system was not external but carried out by a cabal of ‘criminals’ within the very same organisation.
The government MUST as a matter of urgency commence a forensic investigation of the IT department of ECG.
My information points to a group that has been siphoning over GH200 million every month! Yes you read that right.
What we are witnessing is internal power play to cripple the new MD who has dared to open an investigation into these matters. The State security apparatus MUST with alacrity take this matter up and ensure the safety and protection of the MD and his team seeking to uncover the mess.
The rot at ECG would make you sick if you truly love this Country and it is not about politicians here. It is Ghanaian citizens taking advantage of the citizens. We demand swift and immediate action!
For God and Country. 🦁🇬🇭
