The Chief Executive Officer of the Bui Power Authority (BPA) Jabesh Amissah Arthur effective close of today (Friday January 27) ceases to be the boss of the power producing company.
He proceeds on his terminal leave.
An internal memo intercepted by Kasapafmonline.com and copied to all departments of the Authority said “While arranging to hand over to the President’s Representativeas agreed with the Minister, the Director for Programs and Engineering Department, Mr Anthony Boye Osafo-Kissi, will be responsible for the day -to- day administration of the Authority.”Mr Jabesh Amissah Arthur was appointed by former President John Evans Atta Mills when the NDC government assumed power in 2009.
He is a trained Mechanical Engineer from the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology with over 25 years rich experience in many World Bank, European Investment Bank, Kuwait Fund for Arab Economic Development, Agence Francaise de Development sponsored projects.
Additionally, he has had close involvement in regional energy projects such as the West African Gas Pipeline Project (WAGP) and the West African Power Pool (WAPP). Obviously, he is not one of those coat-and-tie engineers who cannot predict when ‘dumsorism’ will strike. And by the way, he has a Master’s degree from Harvard in Cambridge, Boston, MA.
