Dr. Dompreh stated that the swearing-in of the board is a mark of the President’s confidence in them in steering the affairs of one of the key state-owned companies in the country..
“Your nomination is indicative of His Excellency President Akufo Addo’s confidence in your individual and collective abilities to steer the affairs of one of the key state-owned companies in Ghana’s energy sector. You are by this appointment expected to provide direction and leadership in the day-to-day running of the nation’s premiere mid-stream gas business company”, he stated.
“I am aware that in times past one of the major challenges Ghana Gas has faced is VRA’s indebtedness to it; payments for the gas supplied them in their operations were quite irregular. As you take over the helm of affairs, I urge you to be keen in ensuring that debts owed the company are paid regularly”, he continued.
“As sector Minister, one of my priorities is to rid the sector of avoidable debts especially, ones I call intra-energy sector debts. This will ensure liquidity of companies in the carrying out of their operations as well as other financial obligations”, he added.
