Spread the love

The Public Utility Workers Union (PUWU) has directed its members who are staff of the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) in the Krobo District not to work in the areas where the youth are formenting trouble.

According to PUWU, this is to save them from the threats and attacks by the youth.

The ECG workers are therefore, “to remain in the District Office until further notice.”

This was contained in a statement issued by the General Secretary of PUWU, Mr. Michael Adumatta Nyantakyi.

 

PUWU also called on “all stakeholders to engage the youth of the area and bring them to order so that the staff of ECG who are PUWU members can go about their duties and serve the good people of the Krobo District in a safe and peaceful environment devoid of threats and physical attacks.”

PUWU in its statement recalled that, “in July this year, some youth of Krobo District took the law into their hands by tampering with ECG’s network, connecting power illegally, and deliberately cutting the fibre-optic connection. They further attempted to lynch two technicians of Vobiss Solutions Ltd. who went there to mend the cut in the fibre network in Kporwunor.

 

There are instances where they threatened ECG teams, burnt tyres, disconnected and removed installed prepaid meters. For example, on 27th July, the youth massed up at Kporwonor junction, pelted the Military and the ECG team with stones and went ahead to fire two (2) gunshots at the team.”

The Union stressed that “until a conducive working environment is guaranteed, where ECG staff can freely go about their duties to enhance the business of the company without the support of the security agencies in the municipalities, our members will not risk their lives any further.”

“We would like to equally apologize to the cherished customers of ECG in the affected areas, who due to this unfortunate development have been in darkness,” the statement concluded.

Last week, all communities in both municipalities, from Somanya to Kpong, were cut off from the national grid following an alleged exchange of gunshots between the military and some residents at Nuaso.
