Security Analyst, Adam Bona has called on the National security Minister and management of the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) to exempt the private residence of the President from power outages.

He also wants persons living around President Akufo Addo’s residence excluded from blackout.

According to Adam Bona, blackouts in and around the President’s residence has dire security implications.

His comments come on the back of widespread blackout experienced in many parts of the country including the President’s house on Tuesday.

Speaking in an interview on Accra-based Starr FM, monitored by theghanareport.com, Bona called on authorities to take steps to reverse the trend.

“In a more structured security country, where the President stays including his village should not go off. Where he stays 500 meter radius should not go off and the whole of the neighborhood is off including the Nima Divisional Police command. It should not go off for obvious reasons. So that when there’s trouble, the neighbors would know what is going on to quickly alert the authorities”

“If the whole area goes off and it is only the President’s house which I suspect is on probably a generator, then somebody is not doing his work well. And so I’m calling on the National security to fix this anomaly,” he said.

He added that the first gentleman of the land as well as persons living around his home should be made to enjoy certain privileges that come with the portfolio.

“Those who live close to the President are supposed to be perceived privileged to be living close to him and must enjoy some of these amenities for security reasons. You do that in a more structured environment” he stressed.

Meanwhile, the Electricity Company of Ghana says the widespread blackout experienced in parts of the country is as a result of some technical challenges beyond its control.

Parts of Accra including Lapaz, Sowutuom, Kwashieman, Osu, Weija, Adenta, Tabora went long hours without power.

Other parts of Kumasi were also hit with the long hours of blackout.

Whilst ECG blamed the power outages on a technical challenge beyond its control, GRIDCo said it was a major system disturbance.
