Ellembelle youth to demonstrate against new Ghana Gas CEO

Some youth in  Ellembelle  in the Western region have threatened to  demonstrate against the appointment of the New Chief Executive Officer of the Ghana National Gas Company.

Early this week, President Akufo-Addo appointed Dr. Daniel Asante to head the company,  but this has not gone down well with the NPP youth in the constituency.

The youth are accusing Dr. Asante of being part of the “corrupt activities” that went on during the NDC era, when he served as a Deputy Director in charge of Technical services and also a consultant.

Spokesperson for the Ellembelle youth group, Felix Dickson, told Starr News Dr. Asante cannot be trusted to manage the affairs of the Gas Company.

“We don’t want him because for every mess that has been created in the company,  he is also part of it.  If Ghana gas didn’t go well,  he is part of the problem since he was part of the top hierarchy of the company and as a consultant, he gave all the consultancy advise”.

 Meanwhile,  Dr. Asante is expected to begin work today.

He replaces Dr. George Sipa Yankey. He was the technical Director of Ghana’s first Gas Infrastructure project and also developed the gas infrastructure master plan for Ghana in 2008.
