ECG Worker FIRED For Failing to Switch Off Tema Community 2 Power for 2 Days Because His Girlfriend Lives There & Operates Ice Kenkey Business
A work of Electricity Company of Ghana at Tema main station-Emmanuel Antwi has been fired—and his crime is, for failing to follow religiously the internal power switching timetable.
Antwi says he was called to a brief disciplinary meeting on Wednesday and was instantly fired for failing to switch off Tema Community 2 power on Saturday and Sunday.
Speaking to Adom Fm this evening, Emmanuel Antwi accepted he was instructed per a given timetable to do so but because his girlfriend lives there, he decided not to turn it off as her Ice Kenkey business is almost on its last legs because of the “plenty dumsor.”
“For this small thing, I am now jobless as my boss has fired me—saying, the government has ordered that lights must be taken off whenever possible and even when it’s due to come on, they should delay turning it on as much as they can.”
Though Antwi has lost his source of income, he says it’s a blessing in disguise because most people even hate him simply because he works for ECG.
