The Minority in Parliament has urged the Akufo-Addo-led government to ensure the full refund of monies collected by Power Distribution Services (PDS) with interest.

To the Minority, the scandal is a deliberate mismanagement of a good project started by the National Democratic Congress to give Ghanaians an alternative power supplier.
