The former Deputy Minister of Power and Ranking Member on the Mines and Energy Committee of Parliament John Abdulai Jinapor has cited the current intermittent power outages in the country popularly known as dumsor.
According to Jinapor in a Press Conference said, the recent unreliable supply of power popularly known as Dumsor has appeared to be worsening despite several assurances from government officials and managers of the power sector.
Early on, the Ranking Member on the Energy and Mines Committee of Parliament, John Abdulai Jinapor, asked government to desist from any blame game and come clean on the current power crisis as a matter of urgency.
According to the MP, stakeholders and managers of the energy sector should desist from the phenomenon and focus on fixing the issue which is threatening lives and businesses across the country.
“Instead of conceding on their shortcomings and being honest with Ghanaians, this Government has adopted political chicanery, denial and misinformation as a cardinal tool while the ordinary Ghanaian is made to bear the brunt of these avoidable power outage” he said.
Meanwhile, Energy Minister Mathew Opoku-Prempeh has urged Ghanaians to bear with the government as it makes steady progress in resolving the power challenges.
He intimated that all the necessary funding is being provided to fix the power challenges.
