Dumsor: Ghanaians don’t deserve bad governance – Actress Yvonne Nelson ready for protest against power outages

Actress Yvonne Nelson is leading a protest against the power crisis in Ghana, collaborating with civil society groups, associations, professional bodies, and individuals to urge the government to address the issue.

Ghana has been experiencing power outages, known locally as #Dumsor, for several months, despite the government’s denial of an energy crisis.

The term #Dumsor refers to the frequent and unpredictable power cuts that have affected many people and businesses across the country, with lights going off without notice for the past three to four months.

Some Ghanaians have been complaining that their household appliances have been damaged due to the frequent power outages, while others have lost their businesses.

However, the government claims that the situation is not a power crisis, but rather a minor issue with some transformers.

But many energy experts disagree with the government’s assertion.

In April this year, President Akufo-Addo ordered the suspension of electricity exports to neighboring countries.

For decades, Ghana has been supplying electricity to Togo, Benin, and Burkina Faso.

The Chairman of the Parliamentary Committee on Energy, Samuel Atta Akyea, explained that the President’s decision was made “in the interest of the Ghanaian people.”

Atta Akyea acknowledged that the decision may have consequences, but prioritized the needs of Ghanaians.
