- NDC has urged the New Patriotic Party government to admit to Ghanaians that the ‘dumsor’ days are back
- The NDC says the handlers of the energy sector must publish a load-shedding timetable to forewarn the citizenry
The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has challenged the governing NPP to admit the days of the intermittent power outages (dumsor) is back and publish a load shedding timetable.
According to the NDC, Ghanaians deserve to know and have a load shedding schedule to enable them plan their day-to-day activities.
The NDC, in a statement signed by its National Communication Officer Mr Sammy Gyamfi, said the energy sector is saddled with debt and the current challenges are a result of the “Akufo-Addo government’s ineptitude and its mismanagement of the energy sector.”
The statement further urged the Akufo-Addo-led government to “confront this issue head-on by admitting that we are back in “Dumsor” [load shedding] and take urgent steps to resolve the situation.”
The NDC also opined that the current challenges facing the energy sector which have led to prolonged power cuts in the capital, Accra and other big cities, are a result of financial challenges.
Meanwhile, the government insists dumsor is not back and has explained that the situation was a result of technical challenges.
Energy Minister John Peter Amewu had assured the country that the situation would stabilise in five days but the problem still persists in most parts of the country.
