Speaking on Joy FM’s News analysis show Newsfile Saturday, the former presidential spokesperson stated that he’s not the substantive Minister of Power, adding that people should not mistakingly give him that elevation.

“The Acting Minister for the sector is the honourable Finance Minister Seth Terkper and he has been very helpful especially with the finance arrangements,” he stated.

Dr. Kwabena Donkor who headed the ministry resigned his post following his failure to fulfill his promise of ending the power crisis which adversely affected businesses and Ghanaians for three years.
