The Asantehene, His Royal Majesty Otumfuo Osei Tutu II has commended Energy Minister, Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh, for his sterling role in conceiving the GENSER Kumasi Pipeline Project.

Speaking at the inauguration of the pipeline in Anwomaso in Kumasi on Wednesday, 17th April, 2024, the Asantehene recounted the relentlessness with which the Minister ensured that the project came into fruition.

“Some even said my son and grandson had even been bought by GENSER, however it was out of his pure love for Ghana and the Ashanti Region…I am proud of him”,  the King complimented the Minister.

The Asantehene used the opportunity to call for the deepening of private sector collaboration as part of efforts to ensuring massive industrialization in the country.  

Delivering a speech at the event, Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh said; “Being credited by the company for my modest role in conceptualizing and shepherding the project, I, in all humility, also pay glowing tribute to the brilliant minds who contributed immensely to the realization of this project – notably, the Vice President of the Republic, H.E. Alhaji Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, past Ministers for Energy, Technical Advisors and indeed, the dynamic team at the Ministry of Energy.”

He continued; “This project, I have no doubt, will rejuvenate the industrial sector of the Ashanti Region by enhancing the supply of natural gas to key stakeholders, ultimately positioning the Region as pivotal industrial hub within the overarching context of the NPP government’s industrialization agenda.”

Following the successful completion of this pipeline project, private and public entities including the VRA, AKSA, CENIT among others have resolved to relocate or build new power plants at Anwomaso to utilize the facility.
