    My family’s safety at risk because of my role – ECG MD

    Managing Director of the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG), Samuel Dubik Mahama, recently shared his profound worries regarding how his professional duties affect the safety and welfare of his family.

    During an interview on JoyNews’ PM Express, Mr. Mahama, who has led ECG, highlighted the challenges he encounters in balancing the demands of his high-ranking role.

    He revealed that his life has faced threats, and the security of his children and family has been compromised ever since he took on this position.

    The Managing Director went on to say that when he or the power distribution company are the target of unfounded accusations, it usually makes matters worse.

    He urged the public to verify facts before making accusations, stating, “… it is always when people are complaining that somebody has taken an amount of money or something has been moved, it is not fair. Get the facts right.”

    Mr. Mahama expressed his frustration and emphasized the need of responsible reporting while pointing out the nation’s growing trend of disseminating false information.

    “We’re getting to a point in this country, where waking up in the morning and brandishing things that are not true is the order of the day, and that is not fair,”he stated.

    He is frustrated because the nation is currently experiencing frequent power outages. Ghanaians have requested that ECG release a schedule of power outages so that everyone is aware that the “dumsor”—power outages—has returned.

    In the meantime, Mr. Mahama has promised that the problems that caused the most recent power outages have been fixed, so the sporadic blackouts will end.
