Papa Kwesi Nduom, the founder and leader of the Progressive People’s Party says president John Mahama and the NDC need not to be in a hurry to declare victory over ‘dumsor’.
“I have asked president Mahama and his people to be patient enough to understand the full scope of the power crisis - from generation to transmission to distribution to billing and collection of power supplied.
“They wanted a political solution so they got one, an expensive generation solution and now they realise there is a billing and collection problem,” Nduom stated.
According to him, there was the need for the NDC to understand the problem and stop playing the dangerous blame game with the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG).
He wondered why the majority chief whip, Mohammed Muntaka would accuse the ECG of undermining president John Mahama’s fight against the energy problem.
“So what do these people take Ghanaians for? Was it not President Mahama who stood in Parliament, in front of the majority chief whip, and promised that he would fix the dumsor problem? And did the same president Mahama not go back to Parliament in the presence of this same majority chief whip and declare victory over dumsor? Is dumsor not supposed to be ...a thing of the past?" Nduom wondered.
