The Institute of Energy Security (IES) has issued a call for the immediate removal of Energy Minister Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh, citing the deteriorating energy crisis as the primary reason for their demand.

Amid the current state of the energy sector, the IES believes urgent action is necessary, leading them to advocate for the minister’s dismissal.

In an interview on Citi FM on Monday, Nana Amoasi VII, the Executive Director of IES, expressed disappointment with the minister’s perceived lack of action.

He pointed out the minister’s apparent detachment from the reality of the energy situation, questioning the purpose of his presence in such a crucial role.

“At this juncture, with the situation we find ourselves in, where there’s no electricity supply, what role does the minister serve? It’s time for him to step aside, perhaps to focus on other pursuits.

“He should be relieved of his duties. It’s becoming unbearable. Is it too much to ask?”

“In all honesty, as a prepaid consumer, I’ve paid for the power that should be provided to me. I’ve even paid for the meter installation, which is essentially a contractual agreement.

“If I’m not receiving the power, the least I expect is some communication about when to expect it. But to be told to create my own timetable is simply disrespectful.”
