Acknowledge ‘Dumsor’ and release load-shedding timetable – Mahama to govt

Source The Ghana Report

The Flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Mahama, urged the government to acknowledge the prevalent power outages, locally known as ‘dumsor’, and provide a clear load-shedding timetable to consumers.

Recent power outages in various parts of the country have prompted Mahama’s call for transparency.

Addressing a gathering in Sissala West during his “Building the Ghana We Want” Tour in the Upper West region, Mr Mahama emphasized that Ghanaians are well aware of the ongoing power challenges and simply require a transparent timetable for load shedding.

Drawing from his experience as a former president, Mr Mahama highlighted tyhat he kept the public informed during his tenure about challenges and the measures taken to address them.

However, he expressed concern that the current administration has not been as forthcoming in addressing the issue.

“When I was president, if things were not going well, I told the people of Ghana things are not going well and this is what we are trying to do about it. I think my honesty was one of my major problems because I didn’t think I should fool my people. Today every day you sleep and the lights go off and we know that they are shedding load. They have a problem with generation. Some generation assets are down. They have a problem with paying for gas.

“They have a problem with paying for fuel so every day they are shedding between 280 and 480 megawatts of power but they will not give us a timetable and say you will be off today, this one will be off tomorrow because that is what Ghanaians know as dumsor.

“And so we will just put off the light anytime and reduce the number of megawatts so the system won’t go down. But we don’t call it dumsor and so there is no dumsor but we know that it is dumsor,” he stated.

Meanwhile, some Ghanaians are calling on the government to address the recent power outages that occur without prior notice from electricity providers.

According to some affected people from various parts of the country, the frequent disconnection is affecting their businesses.
