NPPA and ACC were ‘Deceptive’ - Says Income Electrix Engineer in Sierra Leone

A Senior member of staff at the Income Electrix Limited Company has told Awareness Times under condition of anonymity, that they were developing a "robust reaction" to the positions taken by both the Anti Corruption Commission and the National Public Procurement Authority of Sierra Leone.

"We respect the valuable work of both the ACC and the NPPA in your country and we understand how important their mandates are insofar as protecting your country but what we will not accept is the slandering of our company's good reputation," this Engineer stated.

According to Income Electrix, it is "absolutely deceptive" for ACC and NPPA to compare any Independent Power Provider in Sierra Leone to Independent Telecommunications Companies as entrenched legislation makes it impossible for any power generating company to transport or sell power directly to end-users whilst telecomms companies can set up shop today and start transmitting and selling telecommunications services the next day with no legal impediments.

"There are numerous shady areas of the ACC Report that we are going to robustly react to very soon. ACC never contacted us to hear our own side. We shed sweat and blood to bring light to not only Eastern Freetown but on several occasions to the entire city when the World Bank's GTG at Kingtom failed. When Sierra Leoneans read our story, they will question why we have been villified," the Income Electrix Engineer angrily assured.

Meanwhile, the Nigerian High Commissioner to Sierra Leone, His Excellency Godson O. Echegile has stated in an exclusive short chat with this newspaper that the Nigerian Government is "very much interested" in seeing how the contract debacle with Income Electrix plays out as, according to the envoy, numerous other Nigerian investors like Aliko Dangote were poised to consider investing in Sierra Leone given the long years of ties between the two Nations.
