The Ghana Grid Company Limited (GRIDCO) and the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) have been urged by numerous Ghanaians in recent times to publish a low shedding time table.

In his most recent state of the nation address, President Akufo Addo boasted about having kept the lights on for the previous seven years.

A few hours after the address, darkness descended on parts of Accra.

The Ghanaian Electricity Company is adamant that DUMSOR will not return.

John Jinapor, the Yapei-Kusawgu member of parliament and ranking member of the mining and energy committee, has directed the power sector’s handlers to promptly release a low shedding schedule so that Ghanaians can make plans in advance.

despite the fact that the Minority blames the recent power outages on a fuel shortage and some thermal plants’ inefficiency.

Samuel Dubik Mahama, Managing Director of ECG, claims that the nation has advanced in addressing the power crisis.

“An outage is an outage,” stated Mr. Mahama in an interview with Bola Ray on Starr Chat. On the line disturbance is what we refer to as Dumsor. Thus, Dumsor has returned.

The unstable power supply has been ascribed by the company to maintenance problems.

“We are having major maintenance issues, the issue we are having now has nothing to do with fuel. You are relying on a power plant that is to give you about 360 megawatts then around 4pm the gas emergency safety valve has a problem. What do you do? It is a machine” Mr Mahama said.

“If we talk, we won’t send positive signs into the public domain. But we need to actually know that this is our situation. If we are doing it in our private sector, would we speculate? Mr Mahama stated.
