The minority in parliament has begun playing the blame game with the recent unannounced power cuts Ghanaians are experiencing.

According to the minority in Parliament, the Akufo-Addo led government is deliberately destroying the legacy of former President John Dramani Mahama in the energy sector.

Addressing a press conference on Wednesday, April 28, former energy minister, John Jinapor, said the actions of the Akufo-Addo government had led to the return of the current power challenges.

He also alleged that the government is behind the failure of GRIDCo to publish a general load shedding timetable.

Jinapor also claimed that GRIDCo had plans of publishing a general load shedding timetable but for the interference of the government.

The former deputy power minister, however, stated that the government must restrain itself from its interference in the management of the energy sector, for them to work effectively.

“Government must desist from political interference in the management of the energy sector," he said.
