OUR MANIFESTO: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
In recent times, the indiscriminate power cuts in some parts of the country has caused Ghanaians to worry and raise some concerns.
The Chief Executive Officer of Ghana Grid Company Limited (GRIDCo), Jonathan Amoako-Baah has reiterated that Ghana's power supply is still intact and not suffering.
According to him, the latest incessant power rationing in the country can be attributed to a system upgrade.
He insists that the situation is not a regular load-shedding exercise as many continue to misconstrue.
Speaking on CitiTV's Point of View, Amoako-Baah once again allayed the rising fears of Ghanaians that the most dreaded power outage period mostly referred to as ‘dumsor’ is rearing its ugly heads again.
“What we are experiencing is not the ‘dumsor’ we know of. Dumsor is not coming back. From my point of view, I have to say it as it is; devoid of politics. I have to assure people that what they are thinking is not what it is,” he reiterated.
Lately, Ghanaians have begun raising concerns over a possible come back of perennial blackout due to some nationwide cut in power supply.
Meanwhile, the Ghana Grid Company (GRIDCO) has finally released a load shedding timetable to better manage the recent erratic power cuts in some parts of the country.
The schedule released is to ration power supply to parts of the Volta and Oti regions over the next few days.
In a notice sighted by YEN.com.gh from GRIDCo to the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG), GRIDCo requested that the outages commenced from Thursday, March 18 to Monday, March 22, 2021.
According to GRIDCo, this would enable them to undertake repair and maintenance works on transformers supplying power to the two regions.
Parts of Ho, Adaklu Ahunda, Sogakope, Akatsi, Keta, Adidome, and its environs are expected to experience power outages.
