Reinstatement of Kukubor at ECG will derail govt’s agenda – Pro NDC group

A pro NDC group, Global Network for Bare Facts (GNFBF), has urged government to rescind its decision to reinstate Mr Bright Kofi Kukubor as the Divisional Manager in-charge of Manpower and Training at the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG).

A press statement issued Wednesday said Mr Kukubor, while in office, was alleged to have committed dubious acts which contributed to the current power crises that confronts the country.

It said Mr Kukubor was in one instance strangely selected by the management of ECG to attend a two week programme in Canada which was meant for another senior staff.

In the process, the statement alleged, Kukubor deceptively applied for a three week stay in Canada instead of two and was given all per diem and entitlements, yet he ended up abandoning the official assignment and travelled to London.

The statement further alleged that Kukubor forged a certificate to serve as an evidence of his trip to Canada, a situation that brought doubts among the management of the company.

The matter was later investigated and upon interrogation he admitted to his dubious act and was dismissed, the statement added.

It said Mr Kukubor was alleged to have manipulated junior engineers in relation to load shedding and black-outs especially in Accra and Tema, creating problems within the company.

“Clearly, such a saboteur of the government shouldn’t be reinstated,” it reasoned.

The group urged ECG and all stakeholders not to restore Mr Kukubor to his former position, since that would not be in the interest of the nation and would also derail the president’s quest for a Better Ghana.

“The reinstatement of Mr Kukubor is likely to cause a nationwide demonstration by the staff of the Company”, they threatened.
