Dumsor is back; Publish load shedding timetable – Minority tells Govt

The Minority in parliament has urged the government to publish a load shedding timetable to help Ghanaians plan their lives in the midst of the recent power crisis.

Speaking on the floor of Parliament after today after a brief power cut to the chamber, Minority Spokesperson on Mines and Energy, John Jinapor, stated that  the power outages are due to the government’s inability to purchase fuel for the country’s thermal plants.

He argued that the intermittent power outages being witnessed in the country is a sign of a looming crisis in the country’s power sector stemmed from the government’s incompetence, stressing that the load shedding (Dumsor) timetable is necessary.

“We are reliably informed that dumsor will continue today at 12 noon and it’s only fair that Ghanaians are made aware,” the minority spokesperson on energy, John Abu Jinapor told journalists in parliament on Thursday.

The MP for Yapei Kusowgu said, yesterday for instance, the entire city was thrown into total darkness yet, no official was bold enough to admit to the challenge.

“The best this government led by Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and his vice Dr Mahamudu Bawumia can do is to publish the schedule of the ongoing dumsor, so people can plan for their lives,” he said.

Many Ghanaians have been  complaining of erratic power supply following power cuts to major parts of Accra and Kumasi last night.
