The Millennium Development Authority (MiDA) CEO must resign over a clear conflict of interest in the Power Distribution Services (PDS) take-over of the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) under the Millennium Challenge Corporation power sector compact II.
Mr Martin Eson-Benjamin in a position as the CEO of MiDA and a Director of Enterprise Group, who upon assumption of office as the CEO of MiDA who were mandated by an Act of Parliament to manage, oversee and implement the programs of Millennium Challenge Account, supervised the change of the original insurance company a state owned institution – SIC to his interested company and private entity Enterprise Insurance. With all these Mr Martin Eson-Benjamin have conflicted his role as MiDA boss and a Director of Enterprise Group which is related to the Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta representing Ghana government who have a major stake in the PDS/ECG deal.
MiDA is the authority mandated by parliament and Enterprise Insurance a subsidiary of Enterprise Group is the new insurance company for PDS/ECG after it was changed from SIC Insurance a state owned institution during the course of the arrangement for the take-over of ECG.
The CEO of MiDA Mr Martin Eson-Benjamin is deeply involved in a Conflict of Interest which is unethical and therefore must resign his position as the CEO of The Millennium Development Authority (MiDA).
