Probe AMERI power plant relocation costs in Kumasi – Abu Siddique urges journalists

By Majesty 3 Min Read

Siddique Abubakar Suleiman, a policy analyst, has tasked reporters with looking into the cost of moving the AMERI facility from Takoradi to Kumasi in the Ashanti Region as soon as possible.

He believes that it is costly to spend $36 million on the power plant and that an investigation is necessary in the interest of accountability.

On Tuesday, April 16, 2024, at Anwomaso in the Oforikrom Municipality, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo officially opened the first phase of the Kumasi 1 Thermal Power Plant (K1TPP), also referred to as AMERI.

It is becoming apparent that the public had to spend roughly $36 million for the power plant’s relocation. The sum has spurred debates among the opposition and media, casting doubt on accountability.

In response to the news, Siddique stated that the plant had been transferred to Kumasi in an attempt to win over NPP supporters by “neglecting the people for too long” and emphasised that the “deceit” would not succeed.

“I wish to adopt a voting stance. The NDC is going to be taken by surprise by the Ashanti Region. He said to Oheneba on Battle Ground on Power FM, “The government was unable to acquire a power plant for the Ashanti Region, even with all the loans they had taken.”

Siddique made the following statement when discussing the expense of transferring the power plant’s components: “$36 million for transferring a plant from Takoradi to Kumasi? They ought to demonstrate to us how they covered the cost of the power plant’s transportation. This is straight up theft. The folks that steal from us are those who Ghanaians ought to be aware of. These people are not deserving of our changing.

“The journalists need to look into this amount.” Since this much could have been used to construct schools, I believe the NPP is trying to trick us. Are you aware of how many schools this cash could have produced? He asked a question.

Siddique made reference to the suffering facing the nation, saying, “Ghanaians should know that the NPP has taken us back 20 or 30 years.”

“Does the $36 million include the installation of the power plant?” he inquired as well. Because I know Bawumia enjoys places with money, I think he has a role in this transaction.
