The editor-in-Chief of the Crusading Guide newspaper, Abdul-Malik Kweku Baako, has challenged President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to fix the current power cuts in the country.
Several parts of Accra and other parts of the country have in recent weeks experienced severe power cuts triggering fears that the power crisis that bedeviled the country some years ago is gradually returning.
On Wednesday, the entire Kumasi Metropolis in the Ashanti region was in darkness for several hours. No explanation has been given for the power cuts by authorities.
The current outages come after promises by the previous Mahama-led administration that the power crisis popularly known as dumsor had been fixed.
But speaking on Newsfile Saturday, Mr. Baako said although the erratic power situation was not solved totally by the previous government it is no excuse for Ghanaians to be experiencing it under the new government.
“Dumsor wasn’t solved totally but that’s no excuse. The president and his team must fix it,” Mr. Baako said.
Meanwhile, the Public Relations Officer of the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG), Accra West, Eric Asante, has said the frequent power outages will cease by the first week of March.
