Former Deputy Minister of Energy under the John Mahama’s administration, John Abu Jinapor says the electricity company of Ghana is currently shedding load.

On Monday 7th September,2020 the opposition National Democratic Congress launched it’s 2020 manifesto during which there was a massive power outages across the country.

Due to the power outage during the time of the manifesto launch, many NDC folks complained bitterly of Government sabotaging the NDC manifesto launch with deliberate power outages.

Below are the exact words of John Abu Jinapor:

Hon. John Jinapor writes

A lot of my NDC folks were complaining bitterly of Government sabotaging the NDC manifesto launch with deliberate power outages.

What most of them failed to realise is that ECG in particular has been shedding load (Dumsor) for more than two weeks now. The Power sector SOEs [State Owned Enterprises] have only been gagged not to announce a schedule for the current ongoing load shedding.

Yesterday was only worse because demand for electricity increased dramatically as a result of millions of Ghanaians deciding to watch the Manifesto launch from the comfort of their homes.

Obviously supply couldn’t cope with the demand, hence the situation went out of control resulting in massive power outages.

The bottom line is that the power sector is choking with huge debts due to bad management practices and Unnecessary political interference in the work of the regulator (PURC).

The Akufo-Addo led Government must be honest with Ghanaians and stop deceiving us.

Ghanaians must be told the truth about the current load shedding and the real situation on the ground so they can plan their lives and brace for the challenge.
