Energy Minister John Peter Amewu has revealed that his ministry would ensure that power distributors inform end-users about the periods that they would not have electricity within the 12-day shortfall.
The main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) and energy think tank Africa Centre for Energy Policy (ACEP), have demanded a load-shedding timetable.
Responding to a question about the need for a load-shedding timetable in the interim, Mr Amewu said at an Economic Management Team (EMT) meeting on Wednesday, April 3, 2019, that they “have directed the various agencies to provide information to areas that will not experience light being on”.
He said some parts of the Ashanti Region have been duly informed about the fact that their lights would go off at a particular time.
“In the Ashanti Region, most of the areas have already been informed prior to the shutdown. I am quite surprised why some of the areas are not receiving that information here in Accra because I always have it on my notice. They send me a notice that these areas will not be able to experience light on,” he said.
