The match between the Black Stars and Lesotho came to a halt for over 30 minutes after the flood lights failed to come
alive and Ghana’s Presidency was so upset to take a decision which they might have to reconsider – taking back their words!
According to reports and an interview granted on Joy fm by the Public Relations Officer of Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG), the inability of the flood lights in the Kumasi Sports stadium to be on, were purely as a result of a technical problem which is not under the jurisdiction of ECG – A switch reportedly went faulty.
The flood lights in the stadium are powered by generators and do not take its source from ECG as confirmed by the ECG officer. Therefore, a change over needed to be done by way of the switches.
Mr. Koku Anyidoho confirmed on Joy fm that President Mills was upset with what happened at the stadium and that the Ashanti Regional Area Chief of ECG has been suspended.
I hope the Presidency comes back to say that what Koku said was untrue. Why would you blame ECG when a wire connecting your bulb to a power source in your house was chewed by a mouse?
If the power failure was as a result of a switch/technical issue and that the flood lights are not run on power supplied by ECG, then the President should be upset with the National and Regional Sports Council Officers and not Electricity Company of Ghana.
Congratulations to Black Stars and Coach Akwasi Appiah for Winning the match massively by 7 goals to nil.
However, Government has Officially refuted Koku’s claim.
