Contrary to reports and claims that Ghana’s primary electricity distributor, ECG has been sold out to a private firm, Managing Director, Samuel Boakye-Appiah has disclosed otherwise. According to Mr. Boakye-Appiah, the Electricity Company of Ghana has taken a new focus and direction following a partnership with a private investor.

Philippine’s Energy giants Meralco have signed a 20-year agreement with the energy distributors holding 49 percent.

“I wish to take this opportunity to assure all stakeholders that the introduction of a private sector participant in ECG distribution business, ECG will be restructured and repositioned with a new focus. Contrary to the view that is held out there ECG has not been sold. ECG is still existing and will continue to exist”, he explained.

The concession agreement between the government of Ghana and a consortium of investors, led by Manila Electric Company (Meralco), for private sector participation (PSP) in the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) is to take off fully by February, 2019
