Energy minister Emmanuel Armah Kofi-Buah maintained on Joy FM’s Super Morning Show Monday morning, government has no problems with WAPCo in terms of payments.

A resurgent power crisis has put government under pressure after it appeared to have petered out in the beginning of the year.

A possible explanation surfaced after a letter from the managers of the 678 kilometer pipeline company began circulating in the media.

The letter, dated June 16, says there is “non-payment of the sum of US$101.736 million” overdue invoices.
