The New Patriotic Party (NPP) flagbearer, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, has promised that the current unstable power supply, popularly known as “dumsor,” will be fixed shortly.

Addressing the Clergy and Imams in Akropong on Monday, April 29, where he started his campaign tour of the Eastern Region, Dr. Bawumia said he had strong believe that issue will be resolved very soon.

“I know there are challenges and I don’t want to paper over economic challenges. We are going to work on them. Currently, we have issues with power but I say that from the information I have received from the minister for energy, those power challenges will very soon, and I mean very soon be a thing of the past,” the vice president said.

Ghanaians have for some weeks have been experiencing unstable power supply, a development which has affected businesses and individuals.

This has led to both groups and the citizenry calling for load shedding timetable to guide their activities but the Electricity Company of Ghana a timetable is not necessary at this point. 

Last week, the Board Chairman of the ECG, Herbert Krapa, assured that the current power outages will be a thing of the past soon.

He stated that the government has implemented adequate measures to ensure that consumers enjoy an uninterrupted power supply.

Mr Krapa emphasised that the government is aware of the challenges faced by Ghanaians and is committed to resolving them for the benefit of the people.

In a Facebook post on Wednesday, April 24, Mr. Krapa expressed gratitude to the Ghanaian people for their patience and resilience during this crisis.

“As I said earlier today at Kaleo, at the Commissioning of VRA’s 15MW Solar Plant, the Government has put in place immediate measures to ensure the return of uninterrupted supply of power to consumers. I can, therefore, state that the unfortunate power challenges Ghanaians are facing should be over in the next few days.”

“We are fully confident that the measures being put in place should resolve the service interruptions. We empathise with all consumers and apologise unreservedly for the effects of the outages on our daily lives. Please bear with us. We are fixing it and we are nearly there,” Herbert Krapa’s post further read.
