Workers of the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) say they don’t want a contract extension for their Managing Director, Kwame Agyeman-Budu who has reportedly attained the mandatory retirement age of 60.
The workers led by their divisional leadership under the Trade Union Congress (TUC) are calling for the immediate exit of the MD.
According to the workers, the MD has “refused to stay away and continue to parade himself as MD and signing official documents.”
They added that “the MD reached the 60 years mandatory retirement on February 21, 2021. The earlier petition sent through the board chair informing the board that, staff will not work with the MD due to non-performance and retirement is yet to receive any response”.
