Energy Minister Dr. Mathew Opoku Prempeh has charged the management of the Energy Ministry to put their shoulders to the wheel to keep the lights on and the nation moving in the new year.
Dr Prempeh gave the charge in his first meeting with the management in the new year on 4 January, the first day of work in 2022.
The meeting provided the opportunity for management to put the year just gone by in retrospect and also deliberate on how the ministry could improve on its performance going forward.
Discussions further centered on plans for the year 2022 within the overarching context of the national targets.
Dr. Prempeh reminded the Directors and management of the crucial role the Energy Ministry plays in government’s industrialization quest.
Whilst acknowledging the challenges of the year 2021 and the courage to surmount them, Dr. Prempeh said the team is committed and poised to working with relevant stakeholders to ensure that 2022 becomes a more pleasant year in the energy sector of Ghana.
