Ghana under the reign of President Akuffo Addo is still experiencing intermittent Power crisis popularly known as ‘Dumsor’ in the country, Dispatch Deputy Editor, Peter Ankomah has said.
The current Dumsor in the country has exposed the NPP government that claimed to have solved the power crisis after taking over power in 2017.
Ever since the country started facing the intermittent power cuts for almost a month now, the government is yet to find pragmatic solutions to end Dumsor.
Speaking on TV XYZ Morning update on Friday April,23, 2021, Mr Ankomah noted the country has had unreliable electricity since 1992 to 2007 under ex president Kuffour where Dumsor was prevalent but the cuts as Dumsor gained popularity during John Mahama’s administration.
He separated the truth from the falsehood that Ghanaians can’t put the blame solely on John Mahama’s administration.
Mr Ankomah credited Former president Mahama in his good yielding effort in solving the power crisis in the country by bringing into the country a power plants but his failure to fuel the plants caused Dumsor under NDC.
On his part, Frank Pedro Asare, a Communication team member of the NDC who was on the programme asserted that Ghana experienced excessive power crisis under President Kuffour and the only attempt made to mitigate the energy predicament at that time was to task Pastors in the country to pray for more water into the Akosombo dam.
Pedro detailed that, the NPP government inherited the necessary resources in the energy sector from the Mahama led administration that solved the power cuts but their lies, untruthfulness and the sheer propaganda has returned dumsor under the watch of President Akufo-Addo.
He blamed the NPP government for playing politics with Dumsor but not realizing it’s effect on businesses in the wake of Covid 19 pandemic.
