Workers of the Public Utility Regulatory Commission (PURC) on Friday held a thanksgiving service to thank God for answering their prayers, following the dismissal of their boss, Samuel Sarpong, it has been reported.

“This [Friday] morning, our resolve was to give thanks to God. Our slogan is, the Lord has spoken, so this morning our meeting was to give thanks to God for all he has done for us,” a worker told Accra-based Citi FM in a special report about development at PURC.

“The feeling was like Wow, it has finally happened… Because we have been in this struggle since January trying to appeal to authorities to change the board and Executive Secretary for us, but it was delaying, and now it has happened.”

Another worker also said, “This is good news to all of us. We know that it is what God can do this for us. “We as a Commission, as staff, we happy that there is a change today, and we know that this will go a long way to bring sanity back to the office, and make PURC work again.” 

Mr Sarpong was sacked from office on Friday in a letter signed by the secretary to the President, Nana Asante Bediatuo.

He was subsequently directed to handover to a director of the commission, Mami Dufie Ofori, and proceed to take three months’ salary in liue of notice.

His dismissal follows investigations into alleged misappropriation of funds by some officials of the Commission who were probed by the Bureau of National Investigation (BNI).
