ELECTRICITY COMPANY OF GHANA: MINORITY TELLS GOVERNMENT TO PUBLISH ‘DUMSOR’ TIMETABLE

The Minority in Parliament has called on the Electricity Company of Ghana to immediately publish a timetable for the ongoing power cuts, popularly known as ‘Dumsor’, to enable
people to plan their activities. Addressing Journalists in Parliament, the Member of Parliament
for Yapei Kusawgu, John Jinapor said the continuous and deliberate denial by government officials to the effect that there was no load shedding could no longer suffice.
According to John Jinapor, the minority is reliably informed that dumsor will continue and it is only fair that Ghanaians are made aware.

The Minority spokesperson for Energy said the government is unable to purchase enough fuel to power some of the thermal plants due to financial constraints leading to generation
challenges.


He added that what this government, led by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and his vice president, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, can do is publish the schedule of the ongoing
dumsor, so people can plan their lives.

Meanwhile, the electricity supply to Parliament and Job 600, the office complex for Members of Parliament, was disconnected on Thursday due to a GHc23 million debt. The National Taskforce executed the disconnection following unsuccessful attempts to collect the outstanding arrears.
The disconnection is part of the ongoing “Operation Zero Balance” initiative by the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) task force. The primary goal of this initiative is to recover outstanding debts from various ECG customers.
