Andrew Egyapa Mercer, Member of Parliament for Sekondi Constituency

New Patriotic Party (NPP) Member of Parliament for Sekondi Constituency, Andrew Egyapa Mercer, says the use of restrictive tendering to replace the Power Distribution Services concession remains a prerogative of the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC).

According to Mr Mercer, the government has not taken any decision to implement a restrictive tendering process in the changeover.

“The issue of restrictive tendering is only one of the options government proposed to facilitate a timely changeover but the prerogative remains that of the MCC,” he said.

Speaking on Adom TV’s Badwam show, Mr Mercer explained the government’s letter which made mention of a restrictive tendering process did not state it was a final decision.

“In replacing PDS before the end of the two-year compact, immediate plans must be instituted to open up the ownership of this new concession to all Ghanaians and that is what government intends to do,” he said.
