The Minority in Parliament has questioned the motive behind an advertised urgent motion standing in the name of Member of Parliament for Adansi- Asokwa asking Parliament to rescind its decision on the Ameri Emergency power deal secured under the former government.

They fear repealing that deal could return the country into the dark days of power crisis and pose serious economic consequences.

“As far as we [Minority] are concerned it was to deal with an urgent energy crisis justified that we needed to increase the generational capacity of the country and we entered into a contractual arrangement,” he said.

The $510 million Ameri Power Plant was one of such urgent deals entered into by the past government to resolve very serious power crisis which bedeviled the nation since 2012 until late December, 2017.
