‘Dumsor’ in Parliament: MPs were working, we were also working – ECG boss

The Managing Director of the Electricity Company of Ghana, (ECG) Samuel Dubik Mahama has defended his men for cutting the power supply to parliament.

On Thursday, February 29, parliament’s proceedings were interrupted when a power outage struck the building.

This happened during a discussion of President Akufo-Addo’s State of the Nation Address (SONA) by members of the House.

The ECG boss responded to comments by those who criticised ECG for disrupting the work of Parliament.

Speaking to Bola Ray on Accra-based Starr FM, Mr. Mahama quizzed “You said Parliament was working, what was ECG doing?”

According to him, while parliament was in session, ECG was also working, embarking on a revenue mobilisation drive.

The parliament house was disconnected from the power grid due to an outstanding debt of GHc23 million that it owed to the ECG.
