Relocating Ameri Plant to Kumasi will cost the nation more money- Minority

The Minority in Parliament has opposed the decision by the government to relocate the Ameri power plant, allegedly at the cost of $35 million, to the Ashanti Region.

Addressing a press conference on Wednesday, Ranking Member of the Mines and Energy Committee of Parliament John Jinapor said the government should send the plant to the Volta River Authority, as was originally planned.

“The VRA has the capacity to handle and manage the plant. We will use every parliamentary process to ensure that this illegitimate way of appropriating the Ameri plant to cronies will not be tolerated, and we will do everything within our means to ensure that we live up to expectation.”

The government in March 2021 announced that it would be relocating the Ameri Plant located at Aboadze to Kumasi in the Ashanti Region to help stabilise the national grid.
