Managing Editor of the Insight Newspaper Kwesi Pratt Jnr has taken a swipe at government over reports that the Electricity Company of Ghana is to be managed by a private company.

According to him, none of public institutions sold by governments in the past have benefited the people of the country, yet, more and more of the companies are being put on divestiture.

Speaking on Peace FM's Kokrokoo morning show, he said, government will soon sell the people of Ghana when there are no more public companies to be sold.

He added that Vice-President of the Department of Compact Operations Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC), Kamran M. Khan at the United States Embassy on Monday announced that they have received communication from the government to the effect that ECG will soon be handed over to a yet-to-be named private company.

He said even if releasing ECG on concession was a good decision, “major policy issues are announced at the US embassy when there is a minister for power, vice president and a minister for communication.

"Major policy issues are announced at the US embassy when there is a minister for power, vice president and a minister for communication....I am ashamed, I never believed in my life that in Kwame Nkrumah’s Ghana it is the US embassy that makes major policy announcements," he added.

He noted that allowing the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) to be managed by a private company will only burden the ordinary Ghanaian.
