Gov’t criticized for the slow pace in seeking solutions for power outages

A Governance Expert Professor Baffuor Agyeman-Duah has criticized the government for the snail’s pace with which it is finding solutions to the power challenges.

He believes that given the rate at which the power outages occur, the government should have at least attached all seriousness to finding lasting solutions but that has not been the case.

Speaking on the Ghana Tonight show on TV3 Monday April 22, he said “The government hasn’t been too active in seeking solutions to problems”

Prof. Baffour Agyeman-Duah further asked the state power distributor, the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) to release a load-shedding timetable.

This, in his view, will help consumers of power to plan their lives properly.

“The wise thing to do is to issue a timetable,” Prof Baffour Agyeman-Duah, said.

Meanwhile, the Director of Communications for the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Richard Ahiagbah, has admitted that the power outages in parts of the country are frustrating.

However, he said, there is light at the end of the tunnel for the challenge.

Mr Ahiagbah attributed the situation to the maintenance work being carried out by the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG).

He assured that the work will soon be completed.

“The recent power outages have been understandably frustrating. However, there is an end in sight. The maintenance works are almost complete, and we can soon expect access to an uninterrupted power supply around the clock, as we have become accustomed to under the Akufo-Addo-Bawumia Administration.”

Regarding the criticism the members of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) have made against the government over the outages, he said “The NDC is the last political organization to point fingers because Ghana has not forgotten the hurts of the ‘real dumsor,’ suffered under H.E. Mahama.
