Fellow countrymen I made a SACRED and UNCONDITIONAL pledge to end load shedding by 31/12/2015. I said I would resign should I fail to meet the target.
In the past 12 months, I have focused all my energies and marshalled all the necessary resources to end the power crisis. Unfortunately, the power crisis issue is more complex than I thought. It will take several years of sustained investment in the execution of a well thought out policy to achieve reliable energy supply. The 31/12/2015 deadline is impossible.
It is therefore with a heavy heart that announce to the good people of Ghana that I have resigned from my position as the Minister for Power. In as much as I would have loved to see through the plans that we have put in place to end the crisis, this decision is necessary to demonstrate that I respect the promise that I made to Ghanaians.
I wish to use this opportunity to thank the President for the opportunity that he afforded me to serve the good people of Ghana. I am also grateful to everyone who helped my course as Minister for Power.
Thank you all and may God bless our homeland Ghana.
Hon. Kwabena Donkor
The above is a resignation letter that I have drafted for Kwabena Donkor (Minister for Power). I invite your input to make it better for him to use on or before 01/01/2016.
