CEB media spokesman resigns



The media spokesperson of the Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB) – Mr. Noel Priyantha, has resigned.

Mr. Priyantha faced heavy backlash for lacking empathy after making controversial comments during a recent TV programme where he suggested that students should resort to studying using kerosene lamps.

On a X message, Minister Kanchana Wijesekara has said he was informed by the CEB management that ‘the spokesperson has tendered his resignation from the post and issued a public apology for his statement.’

‘The management will also take appropriate steps regarding the statement made,’ the minister added.

‘The statement does not reflect the views of the Govt or the CEB. and would like to extend my apology on behalf of the Ministry & CEB,’ he has further noted.
