Executives of the Senior Staff Association of the Volta River Authority (VRA)have declared their opposition to Parliament demanding an abrogation of the Africa & Middle East Resource Investment (AMERI) deal.
The workers in a statement sighted by thepublisheronline.com, they believe the deal is not good enough for the country and should be discontinued.
The Senior Staff Association and the Public Services Workers Union at the VRA have concerns that some properties belonging to the VRA including lands will be handed over to AMERI as they implement the contract and that for them is not good enough.
”The proposed new agreement before Parliament would be more expensive than the current arrangement and does not make any financial and economic sense to the nation. The nation has surplus generation capacity and does not require any new long-term take or pay arrangement, more so when it is inimical to the interest of the nation.”- the statement said.
According to them, the new deal will bring more hardship to the good people of our dear country- Ghana.
