Government apologizes to Ghanaians for erratic power supply

The ministry of energy has apologized to Ghanaians for the erratic power supply in recent times.

Starr.com.gh reports that the apology follows a frustrating weekend of power outages in the country.

The recent bout of challenges in electricity supply comes barely two weeks after the energy minister, John Peter Amewu, gave an assurance that the situation will stabilize in five days.

Addressing a news conference on Monday, April 1, 2019, the deputy energy minister, William Owuraku Aidoo, said enough measures have been put in place to deal with the situation.

“We have enough fuel, contrary that government doesn’t have money and we are mismanaging the energy sector, that is absolute balderdash…in a nutshell all that I am trying to say is that we have taken the necessary steps to reduce to the barest minimum the disruption of power to the country,” he added.

Meanwhile, the regulator, the Public Utility and Regulatory Commission (PURC) says it has directed investigation into the cause of the erratic power supply.
