UTV presenter, Yaa Konamah, is certainly not happy with the government regarding the country's electricity problem.
The country has been experiencing power cuts in some areas and the renowned broadcaster has taken on the sector responsible for providing electricity.
Speaking on UTV, she said " hasn't your lights gone off? Whether it's GRIDCO, ECG with even the Minister saying the dumsor is not Mahama kind of dumsor, all dumsor be dumsor, fix the problem and don't justify it".
Yaa Konamah continued, "we didn't allow Mahama to justify it, we told him to fix it. As for us, we want light. Now the light goes off in the morning and they say maintenance work, are you telling us all these while GRIDCO, ECG never carried out maintenance work?"
"Don't qualify the dumsor, every dumsor is dumsor ... so we are telling you to fix the problem don't give us excuses ... when we say it too then social media land guards so we shouldn't say it?" she quizzed.
She concluded that "what you are doing is not fine and all of a sudden when the light goes off we can't say dumsor we should say technical challenge, system challenge, why is that those times we didn't say generational challenges".
The presenter's comment was a direct reply to the Minister of Energy, Dr Matthew Opoku-Prempeh who has slammed some section of Ghanaians calling the current energy challenges ‘dumsor’.
Meanwhile, Ghanaians are seething with anger after the Minister for Energy, Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh attempted to downplay the country’s current power challenges.
There have incessant power cuts in various parts of the country in the past few days—a situation that has left Ghanaians on edge and scared of returning to ‘Dumsor’.
The energy minister’s remarks rattled Ghanaians on social media who expressed disgust at the minister’s lack of human face.
Ivy Sedor believes appointing Dr. Prempeh as the energy minister was a terrible mistake.
“If Nana Addo has good intentions for this country do you think Doctor would take over energy sector when plenty energy gurus are there,” she said.
Kobby Mens added “Jokers dey wanna country inside, you collapsed our education system and now your paymaster has sent you to collapse the energy sector....Mr Napo they have seen your presidential ambition and they just want to disrupt your credibility…By the way, you're the worst minister in this current NPP administration."
