Ashanti Kingdom Overlord, Otumfour Osei Tutu II has said that the erratic power supply popularly known as ‘dumsor’ in the Ashanti Region has destroyed all his electrical home appliances.
Otumfour made this known when Energy Minister Matthew Opoku Prempeh paid a courtesy call on him at the Manhyia Palace on Wednesday, December 1.
“It is my prayer that you will work to address this matter because if the country will develop it will depend on the energy. The frequent power outages have destroyed all my appliances,” he told the Energy Minister.
The Asantehene said he sent messengers to the energy minister to enquire about what the problem was and he promised to ensure that the challenges are fixed.
Opoku Prempeh in his response attributed the recent outages in the region to a fallen telecom mast that destroyed two towers belonging to the Ghana Grid Company (GRIDCo) earlier in November.
