Ameri Plant renaming by the Akufo-Addo government is a dishonest ploy – Minority

If the Minority Caucus in Parliament wins the polls in 2024, it claims it would look into the $38 million cost of the government’s relocation of the Ameri power plant to Kumasi.

In a recent Facebook post, the Volta River Authority (VRA) declared the renaming of the Ameri Power Plant to Kumasi 1 Thermal Power Plant (K1TPP).

Edward Bawa, a member of Parliament’s Mines and Energy Committee, claimed during an appearance on Citi TV’s Face to Face that the relocation costs had risen from their original estimate of $24 million to $38 million.

He implied that the opposition is attempting to expose the recommissioning by calling it a dishonest action by the administration.

“You may say, oh, nomenclature, what is the significance of nomenclature to us? You can say that. There is a political connotation to it. Ashanti Region has been one area that consistently they have said they have not done anything for them. They are projecting this animal called Ameri, which they themselves condemned. They are now sending it to Kumasi called Kumasi 1 Thermal Power Plant, and it will look new in the eyes of the people. That is fraud and that is the part that we are trying to expose,” Edward Bawa told Umaru Sanda Amadu.
