John Abdullai Jinapor, a member of parliament representing the Yapei Kusawgu constituency, has requested information from the Akufo-Addo government about the expiration date of Dumsor, as they have always stated.
He asserts that the Akufo-Addo administration’s assertions that it terminated Dumsor are nothing more than conjecture to those who are unfamiliar with the energy industry.
During the parliamentary discussion of the 2023 SONA, he said the following: “Let me put it on record that by the time we (NDC) were leaving office, we had comprehensively wholistically solved the problem of Dumsor before they inherited as government, that is a fact and the records speaks for themselves. If you inherited Dumsor when did you end Dumsor? Tell us, if you inherited Dumsor, tell us when you ended it, which month which year.
He claimed that the idea of receiving Dumsor was simply the product of ignorant individuals’ wild speculation.
After President Akufo-Addo delivered the State of the Nation Address in line with Article 67 of the 1992 Ghanaian Constitution, Parliament opened the discussion.
The Commander-in-Chief of the Ghana Armed Forces presents the government’s plan for the upcoming year and makes legislative proposals to Parliament during the SONA, which is a constitutional requirement and yearly custom.
Representatives of Parliament (MPs), the Speaker of Parliament, and the Court are required to accept the President’s SONA under Ghana’s 1992 Constitution, Article 67.
