The issue of incessant power cuts also known as 'dumsor' in our local parlance has existed for quiet a long time that Ghanaians are used to not it.
Ghanaians as well as politicians have for the past years been playing the blame game as to who's government the crisis got worse
The Energy Minister, John Peter Amewu, has once again played the blame game, by apportioning blames on the past National Democratic Congress (NDC) government.
According to him, the power crisis the country experienced a few years ago is as a result of the incompetent management of the energy crisis by the Mahama-led administration.
In a report filed by JoyNews, Amewu said the ‘dumsor’ situation was not caused by logistical challenges or the lack of equipment needed to generate and supply power to the people.
He added that the crisis is as a result of excess demand over supply.
The dumsor crisis greatly affected businesses, as many of them (especially those who largely depended on electricity to operate) were unable to function efficiently and that had an impact on their level of productivity.
The Mahama-led administration employed a load shedding system to solve the problem in the interim.
The Akufo-Addo government, however, said it has effectively dealt with the dumsor menace through the efforts of the competent management skills by President Akufo-Addo.
In other news, the CEO of the defunct UT Bank, Prince Kofi Amoabeng, has said the promise on the financial sector has made by former president John Mahama is not realistic.
He has described Mahama’s promise as something that is good to the ear, however, he wonders how that would be achieved given the current state of the local banking sector.
About the promise, Mahama said if he wins the election, he would restore the indigenous stake and participation of local banks in the financial sector.
He said he would find ways to promote greater financial inclusion and innovation of the local banks, as well as consider setting up appropriate mechanisation to regulate microfinance and allied sectors.
