At a brief ceremony at the Ministry of Energy’s conference room on Wednesday, July 21, 2021, Dr Prempeh charged the new Board under the chairmanship of Assin Central MP, Kennedy Agyapong to tackle the operational challenges of the company earnestly.

He said the nomination and swearing-in of the Board signified the President’s trust in them, and therefore they must justify the confidence.

“Your nomination is indicative of His Excellency President Akufo-Addo’s confidence in your individual and collective abilities to steer the affairs of one of the key state-owned companies in Ghana’s energy sector. You are by this appointment expected to provide direction and leadership in the day-to-day running of the nation’s premiere mid-stream gas business company.”

Dr Opoku Prempeh reiterated his approach of discouraging intra-energy sector debts, where indebtedness was affecting the seamless operations of companies.

He, therefore, charged the Board of Ghana Gas to ensure that all debts owed to the company are paid regularly.

“I am aware that in times past, one of the major challenges Ghana Gas has faced is VRA’s indebtedness to it; payments for the gas supplied them in their operations were quite irregular. As you take over the helm of affairs, I urge you to be keen in ensuring that debts owed the company are paid regularly.”

He continued, “As sector minister, one of my priorities is to rid the sector of avoidable debts especially, ones I call intra-energy sector debts. This will ensure the liquidity of companies in carrying out of their operations as well as other financial obligations.”

On technical issues, the Minister charged the board to be keen on quality assurance.

This he says if sustained will be critical to the development of Ghana’s nascent gas industry.

He further asked the Board to be sensitive to the community needs of the project affected areas.

This, he says will ensure peaceful co-existence between the company and host communities.

The nine-member Board include Dr Ben KD Asante, MD of the company, John Darko and Adelaide Mary Benneh. The rest are Awulae Amihere Kpanyinli, Abraham Ossei Aidooh, Delphine Dogbegah , Nana Owusu Ansah Ababio and Stephen Sumani Nayina.

The Ghana National Gas Company was established in July 2011 as a limited liability company with the responsibility to build, own and operate natural gas infrastructure required for gathering, processing, transportation and marketing.

Chereponi Chairman Attacked by NPP Supporters Over DCE Nomination (Video)

The New Patriotic Party (NPP) Chairman for the Chereponi district has been brutally assaulted by party youth following the release of President Nana Akufo-Addo’s list for the Metropolitan, Municipal, and District Chief Executive (MMDCEs) Sunday.

A video circulating on social media shows the chairman being mobbed by the marauding party youth and subjected to severe beatings while some policemen make efforts to save him from the wild attacks with warning shots.

In a report filed by Kasapafmonline sighted by GhArticles.com, reports say the party office has been set ablaze amidst the tension.

Earlier on, police in a statement announced an intel regarding a demonstration set to be embarked upon by some members of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) who were aggrieved that their favourite candidate, S.K. Orlando, was not recommended for nomination.

“The Chereponi District Police Command upon receipt of the information quickly invited the Chereponi constituency chairman, Aliu Suleman and some of the youth leaders and after discussing, the chairman and the youth leaders realized the need to keep the peace and abide by the advice of the police not proceed with the demonstration. They also promised to go by the Police Order Act and notify the police accordingly, should they intend to organize the demonstration.”
