Energy Minister Amewu under-performing – Alex Mould

Former Chief Executive Officer of the Ghana National Petroleum Corporation (GNPC) Alex Mould has accused Energy Minister John Peter Amewu of not meeting performance targets in key areas of his job.

Speaking to Nuong Faalong on TV3’s Hot Issues, Mr Mould said Mr Amewu failed abysmally in rolling out tender bids for the country’s oil blocks.

“We had over 40 people interested in the blocs, we had 16 people or so who took the actual tender forms and only 3 people bid for two blocs when we had about 6 or so blocs out there,” he said.

“I don’t know how you rate that performance but in my book it is underperforming.”

He also said the process of putting in the cash waterfall had not been done and cited the lack of due diligence and perceived corruption in the concessionaire of ECG on the failure of the Energy Minister, the Vice President and other players.
