“Ghanaians Know There Is Dumsor” - Mahama Tells Akufo-Addo Govt To Release Load Shedding Timetable

“Ghanaians Know There Is Dumsor” - Mahama Tells Akufo-Addo Govt To Release Load Shedding Timetable



Ex-president of Ghana, John Mahama, has entreated the Akufo-Addo-led to acknowledge the existence of load shedding and release a timetable to that effect.



There have been recent power outages in the country, which have left homes, industries and offices relying on other power sources or waiting until electricity is restored. 



However, there is no timetable which will allow consumers to prepare adequately. 



The Flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Mahama, therefore, called on the government to at least publish a load-shedding timetable, which would inform Ghanaians of what to do.


He was speaking at a gathering in Sissala West as part of his "Building the Ghana We Want" Tour in the Upper West region. 


He said when he was in power, he provided information on when things were going wrong and expected the current government to do the same. 


“When I was president, if things were not going well, I told the people of Ghana things are not going well and this is what we are trying to do about it.” 


“They have a problem with paying for fuel, so every day they are shedding between 280 and 480 megawatts of power but they will not give us a timetable and say you will be off today, this one will be off tomorrow because that is what Ghanaians know as dumsor.” 


According to Mahama, the number of megawatts is reduced to prevent the system from going down, hence the need for a load-shedding timetable. 


Meanwhile, John Mahama was named Kuoro Sabinwero Wajia I, meaning a "leader with good intentions and an immaculate heart", during his tour of the region. He described it as an honour.
