ECG to boycott Ashanti Regional Minister over arrest of General Manager

Employees of the Ashanti Regional branch of the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) have announced their intention to hoist red flags in their offices across the nation starting today, in a bid to prompt an apology from the Regional Minister.

The move comes after allegations that the Ashanti Regional Minister, Simon Osei-Mensah, played a role in the arrest of their General Manager, Ing. Mark Wiafe Asumani, following a power outage at the Kumasi Technical University.

Mr. Asumani was subsequently released on self-recognizance bail.

In an interview with Citi News, National Vice Chairman of the Senior Staff Association for ECG, Bismark Adomah, said all meetings with the Ashanti regional minister will be boycotted unless he apologises.

“Everyone in ECG is wearing red and hoisting the red flag. And secondly, we have also instructed our four general managers not to attend any meeting called by the regional minister.

“The invitation of the letter will let us know whether he is calling to apologise and if the invitation doesn’t state that, we will not attend the meeting. Yesterday, the NEC met and took the decision which has been communicated to all our members throughout the country.”
