Decision to halt electricity export to neighbouring countries apt – IPGG to President

The Independent Power Generators Ghana (IPGG) has hailed the government’s decision to halt electricity exports to Togo, Burkina Faso, and Benin.

In a press release issued by its CEO, Elikplim Apetorgbor, the firm stated that the measure would go a long way towards bringing some relief and stability to the local economy by boosting supplies, even if the decision would not completely solve the power supply issues.

“We are gladdened that the President is reported by the Chairman of Parliament’s Committee on Energy Samuel Atta Akyea, who doubles as the MP for Abuakwa South as having ordered the Volta River Authority to suspend the electricity export to our neighbor”, the statement said.

Mr. Apetorgbor stated that it is essential and proper to applaud the president for prioritising the local market, which is the correct thing to do at this critical time.

“As we commend the president for the intervention, we equally commend the media, parliament and the public for taking keen interest in the issue”.
