My life and those of my children are at risk because of my job – ECG Managing Director

Managing Director of the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG), Samuel Dubik Mahama, recently shared his profound worries regarding how his professional duties affect the safety and welfare of his family.

During an interview on JoyNews’ PM Express, Mr. Mahama, who has led ECG, highlighted the challenges he encounters in balancing the demands of his high-ranking role.

“Doing this job is not the easiest thing, your life is being threatened, and to put the lives of your children and family in limbo it’s not fair. And these are things that have been happening to me,” Mahama revealed during the interview.

The Managing Director went on to say that when he or the power distribution company are the target of unfounded accusations, it usually makes matters worse.

He urged the public to verify facts before making accusations, stating, “… it is always when people are complaining that somebody has taken an amount of money or something has been moved, it is not fair. Get the facts right.”

Mr. Mahama expressed his frustration and emphasized the need of responsible reporting while pointing out the nation’s growing trend of disseminating false information.

“We’re getting to a point in this country, where waking up in the morning and brandishing things that are not true is the order of the day, and that is not fair,”he stated.

He is frustrated because the nation is currently experiencing frequent power outages. Ghanaians have requested that ECG release a schedule of power outages so that everyone is aware that the “dumsor”—power outages—has returned.

In the meantime, Mr. Mahama has promised that the problems that caused the most recent power outages have been fixed, so the sporadic blackouts will end.

  1. Are you not a politician?This is how you people behave in this country like Ghana for you people.
    Show some remorseful when you are dealing with customers,but you only show remorse to politicians so the ones it’s not favorable for them will attack you.
    So be smart on your work apply more knowledge to it and you will be free.
    We love you how you work but it’s not helping majority of Ghanaians so try and find another strategy and as known because of economy politicians are now enemies to society.
    So please enforce a security to protect yourself and the family.
    Change your attitude against customers too.
    Thank you 🙏🏾
