The Minority in Parliament has condemned an alleged move by management of Ghana Grid Company Limited (GRIDCo) to get its employees to sign an oath of secrecy.

The application of the proposed act will bar employees from speaking on issues affecting the company amidst the Covid-19 pandemic.

Ranking Member on the Mines and Energy Committee, Adam Mutawakilu in a statement accused the Akufo-Addo-led administration of orchestrating this dictatorial act to prevent employees of the power generating company from publicly airing their grievances.

He noted that as the 2020 general draws near the incumbent government does not want its reputation to be dragged in the mud.

Mr Mutawakilu who doubles as MP for Damongo charged President Nana Akufo-Addo and Management of GRIDCo to halt the proposed oath of secrecy as its application breaches the Right to information Act.
