Minister of Energy, Hon. Matthew Opoku Prempeh has assured Ghanaians that the recent cut in power supply in the country will be a thing of the past very soon.
Mr. Prempeh asked Ghanaians especially those in the affected areas to be patient as the issue is being addressed.
Ghanaians have been experiencing cut in power supply for the past few days with a section blaming the government for not being truthful about the frequent cut in power supply popularly known as ‘dumsor’.
Well, the Energy Minister today April 6, 2021, took to his official Facebook page to announce his visit to the office of Ghana Grid Company(GRIDCO). In his announcement, he begged Ghanaians to be patient with the government as issues relating to the frequent power cut are being addressed and ultimately resolved.
This morning, I will be paying a visit to the Ghana Grid Company (GRIDCo) head office in Tema as part of my familiarization tour of agencies under the Ministry of Energy.
I will first interact with leadership of the company on issues relating to the power transmission systems affecting the constant supply of electricity in the country. My visit will also include GRIDCo’s System Control Centre as well as a field trip to observe and be briefed on projects being undertaken to upgrade our transmission lines.
I entreat all Ghanaians in the affected areas to be patient as the issues relating to our current power situation are being addressed and ultimately resolved.
