- Ghana suffered a nation-wide black out on Wednesday
- GRIDCO has linked the blackout to a surge on one of the turbines
Ghana experienced a national power outage on Wednesday, May 4.
The power outage is feared to have lasted for hours as the national power distribution company, GRIDCO revealed that the power outage was due to a surge on one of the turbines. Also, the 8 hour power outage is feared to have been caused by a lightening following yesterday’s thundery weather.
YEN gathers that the power outage also took a toll on the flagstaff house as the exteriors of the seat of presidency was darkened by the power outage.
This nationwide power outage is feared to have been its first since the new NPP administration took office. The power minister, Boakye Agyarko, has argued that the scourge of power fluctuations would be fully brought to an end considering government’s resolve to restructure power supply in the country.
Meanwhile, Ghana is on its way to signing a concession deal for the partial sale of the electricity company of Ghana. President Akufo-Addo has assured workers of the ECG that the concession will see government maintain a 51 percent share hence workers not being laid of as a result.
