Be truthful to Ghanaians about dumsor – Omane Boamah to govt

Source The Ghana Report

The Director of Elections and IT for the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Dr. Edward Omane Boamah, has said that the Akufo-Addo-Bawumia-led government must be truthful to Ghanaians on the prevailing power crisis also known as dumsor in the country.

This comes after the Public Utilities Regulatory Commission (PURC) clarified that the Electricity Company of Ghana’s (ECG) attribution of power outages during peak hours to transformer faults is inaccurate.

The commission in March requested the ECG to furnish them with data relating to all transformers and power outages that had occurred in the country.

But PURC after analyzing the data submitted by ECG said it has established that only 3 out of the 647 outage incidents that occurred between 7 pm and 11 pm from January up until March 18, 2024, were related to transformers overload.

In a social media post addressed to Energy Minister Dr Matthew Opoku Prempeh and Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia on Sunday, Dr Boamah stated, “Your deceitful and incompetent Akufo-Addo-Bawumia government cannot even be truthful about Dumsor! PURC says transformers are not the cause of the dumsor Ghanaians are confronted with. ”

He questioned why former President John Mahama, before leaving office, had ensured sufficient power supply, yet Ghanaians find themselves having to endure nights in darkness.

“What justification can your NPP government offer Ghanaians for plunging Ghana into Dumsor when John Dramani Mahama provided enough power generation plants including the Ameri thermal plant which you have recently re-located to Kumasi and re-named?

“And if I may add should Ghanaians not be ‘whipping and slapping’ your government for lying about paying for excess power and blaming Mahama for it??? Where is the excess power? Excess power indeed! Or this Dumsor is power diabetes: where sugar/power is abundant but homes and businesses are lacking power?Liars!!!!” he stated.
