Accra in darkness hours after Akufo-Addo declared ‘dumsor’ had been solved

1 Mins read

Residents of Accra and some parts of the country slept in darkness following an unannounced power outage on Thursday night.

This is in spite of the assurance by the President, Nana Akufo-Addo, that his administration had solved the persistent power outages also known as ‘dumsor’.

“Mr Speaker, all our best laid plans for industrialisation would come to naught unless we have a reliable and reasonably priced energy sector. It gives me great pleasure to be able to say that we have overcome the DUMSOR menace,” the President told MPs in his State of the Nation Address to the House on Thursday, February 20, 2020.

He added: “But, unfortunately, I cannot say that we have resolved all our energy problems. It is still work in progress.”

Hours after this declaration, however, most parts of the national capital experienced total darkness forcing some residents to take to social media platforms to vent their frustration.

There is no word yet from the power transmission company, Ghana Grid Company Limited (GRIDCo) or the distributing company, Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG).
