“We apologise for the inconvenience…the engineers are working hard, and hopefully, by 1st of March, the power cuts will stop.” the deputy minister said.

The minister explained that major repair works on the gas pipeline from Nigeria to Ghana are the cause of the power interruptions.

Meanwhile, former Deputy Power Minister, John Jinapor, has accused the government of plunging the country back into power rationing regime.

In a statement, he said the relapse into power rationing was “due to the ineptitude and mismanagement of the energy sector” by the governing New Patriotic Party.

“Today the Ministry of Energy having been exposed badly with the current dumsor the nation is witnessing is moving away from its earlier position that Power outages were solely a result of financial challenges.”

In other news, President Akufo-Addo has been very honest and open to issues confronting the country in several ways, as he has opened up about how hard things are in the country.

He said he would be lying to Ghanaians if he proclaims that he has turned the country into a paradise.
