Power Minister, Dr Kwabena Donkor has clarified that his December 31 deadline of putting an end to the power crisis was in connection with the load shedding exercise and not 'Dumsor'.
Explaining himself to a reporter from the Ghana Broadcasting Corporation, the power minister maintained that the notion Ghanaians had over his resolve to contain the erratic power supply (Dumsor) was incorrect.
It may be recalled that Dr Donkor indeed assured of an end to the load shedding during a press conference with journalists in Accra - an assurance he conditioned with his immediate resignation should he fail to fulfill.
In the meantime, much efforts are being made by government to cushion the pressing effect the power crisis is having on the economy. The setting sail of emergency power barges from Turkey and also the recent pilot introduction of solar energy across some selected regional capitals are expected to minimize the deficit of energy production in Ghana by a little over 40 percent.
