President John Mahama has restated his commitment to make Ghana the power hub of West Africa.

Speaking at the inauguration of the first unit of the Sunon Asogli Power Project Phase two at Kpone near Tema, president Mahama noted that his administration has supervised several initiatives geared towards improving energy generation in the country and for export.

"The West Africa regional electricity market is expected to commence end of this year and this means that Ghana can place any extra generation we do not immediately need on the market for export to other West Africa countries suffering a deficit in electricity supply, "president Mahama said.

According to him, the completion of the phase will see the addition of 360 megawatts of gas fired power to the national grid.

The President was hopeful that generation of gas from the Western Region to the power enclave near Tema will be accelerated so that the excess gas can fuel plants like Sunon Asogli .
