NAPO’s “create your dumsor timetable” comment is regrettable but not shocking

Published:

The Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) was urged to publish their own proposed schedules for load-shedding, and the Energy Minister Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh responded.

According to Nana Amoasi VII, Executive Director of the Institute for Energy Security (IES), his response shows the government’s overall view of Ghana’s power challenges.

He explained that since Samuel Dubik, the board chairman of ECG, recently stated that electricity was not a right, the Energy Minister’s remarks, in his opinion, were regrettable but not shocking.

In what can only be regarded as a sarcastic response to a journalist’s question, the Energy¬† Minister stated in a video posted on social media that he does not see the need for a timeframe when the power distributor claims that the state of circumstances in the country does not call for one.

The continuous power outages, according to Nana Amoasi VII, are also caused by a shortage of funds that affects the chain that distributes and generates power.

He highlighted that due to Ghana’s ongoing debt expansion, the business is likely to fail and that dumsor will worsen starting in 2025. He lamented the bosses’ refusal to admit there was a problem that needs to be resolved.

According to him, the dumsor issue will persist until the leaders of the country accept that it is a problem.
