"We solved Dumsor," Asiedu Nketiah boasts

General secretary of the NDC, Johnson Asiedu Nketia claims the erstwhile Mahama administration left office with excess power capacity – a development which saw the country not suffering bouts of power cuts in 2016.

“We did it. As of the time we were leaving office, there was no ‘dumsor’. Nana Addo said there would be no dumsor, the first 100 days contractors will be paid, and so on. But they (NPP) said: ‘No way, it will not happen. NDC is selling ECG,’ and so on. Luckily the American government gave us over US$500million to take a certain decision to solve this problem once and for all. Because of the blame game and the opposition, the money kept sitting there to date. Let them take necessary action and fix the power sector,” he admonished in an interview with Francis Abban on Starr FM’s Morning Starr on Wednesday, March 15.

Meanwhile the NPP administration has had to battle with bouts of power cuts in the beginning of the year - a development which has seen government seek the face of Ivory Coast to lend more power.
