Gabby Asare Otchere Darko, Senior Partner, Africa Legal Associates and former director of the Dankwa Institute and a cousin of the President Akufo-Addo, seems to be heavily down for the Power Distribution Services (PDS) debacle.

He is been brooding over the termination of the ECG/ PDS contract as if his very life depended on it either directly or remotely.

Speaking on the Asempa Fm’s“Ekosii Sen” current affairs programme on the PDS saga, he sort of blamed the government for terminating the contract and nearly broke down in sympathy for Mr Philip Ayensu, one of the lead promoters of the deal.

Mr Ayensu, formerly linked with Charterhouse Productions and the Multimedia Broadcasting Group, was Chairman of the PDS Board overseeing the PDS deal on behalf of the 51% shareholders.

Philip Ayensu, is owner of the Exclusive Men Barbering Boutique at East Legon,in Accra.
