The Akwatia Development Association in Akwatia in the Eastern Region led by their Chairman Dr. Joseph Amuzu have called on the government to launch an investigation into the sale and the operations of GCDGL since 2011 and save Akwatia township from collapsing because nothing is going on at GCDGL.

Speaking to the, Dr Joseph Amuzu said that, government should abrogate the agreement with the current investor which is Juaspong group and open new bid to allow capable company to come because the company has not been working for almost 7 years now since the took over by the Juaspong group.

They said all the properties the first company left for them is collapsing, there’s no light for almost 8 months now and workers have been denied of their salary so the government should do something about it. They said this when they organise a press conference at Akwatia.

They said as a matter of urgency, the government should reconnect power to at least the workers of the company on humanitarian grounds whilst government intervenes to settle the electricity debt owe to GRIDCO

Some of the workers also appeal to the government to have mercy on them and save their job because they are Ghanaians and the government cannot sit down for them and their family to suffer this way.
