The PDS and its wind of confusion, controversies, and brouhaha in Ghana will not go down without the United State of America’s side of the story.
Although the government has terminated the agreement, leading to the loss of some $190million, the United State will in an exclusive interview with #joysms tell their side of the story and why they wanted the government to go ahead with the PDS.
According to Joy, the exclusive interview will be live on Joy 99.7FM on Monday, 28th October 2019 at 7:20 am local time.
In a related development, the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has patted itself on the back for exposing “the biggest corruption scandal in Ghana’s history,” the Power Distribution Services (PDS) deal. This was disclosed by the General Secretary of the NDC Johnson Asiedu Nketiah in Accra.
Again, Government has started the process of getting a befitting successor of PDS and has listed 6 companies for the restrictive tendering as suggested by the Minister of Finance.
The companies are Manila Electric Company from the Philippines; CH Group/Edf Sa/Lmi Holdings/Veolia Sa with Ghanaian address; Engie Energie Services SA from France; BXC Company Ghana Ltd/Xiaocheng Technology Stock Company Limited, registered and operating in Ghana; Enel S.P.A. from Italy; and Tata Power Company Limited from India.
Up to this point, the successful concessionaire was to control 80 percent stake while Ghanaians will take up 20 percent shares.
