The Minister of Power, Dr Kwabena Donkor, should not be given the chance to voluntarily resign but should be fired, Dr Papa Kwesi Nduom has suggested.
The two-time presidential candidate said if he were President John Dramani Mahama, Dr Donkor should have been fired long time ago.
“We shouldn’t wait for him to resign. He should have been fired long time ago,” Dr Nduom stated on TV3’s New Day on Wednesday, December 23.
The business magnate acknowledged the expertise of the Minister as regards energy and power issues but was concerned his utterances on assumption of duty gave him away.
“Kwabena Donkor is not an ordinary person. He knows energy [and] power. Why will he be rushing to say that Dumsor will be a thing of the past?”
The Power Minister is under pressure over his threat to resign by the end of 2015 if the power crisis is not solved.
But he has since given indication that the crisis cannot be completely solved by close of 2015.
The Founder of the Progressive People’s Party (PPP) believes the president has given Dr Donkor too much time to be at post over his undertaking.
