The Ministry of Energy has apologised for the unexplained power interruptions known locally as dumsor, currently being experienced in some parts of the country especially Accra and Kumasi.
According to the ministry, engineers working on the technical challenges experienced by the sector would be done by March 1, 2020.
Deputy Minister of Energy, William Owuraku Aidoo, made this known while speaking in an interview on Anopa Kasapa on Wednesday, February 26, 2020.
“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.”
