During Former president Mahama’s time in power power disruption of power which was termed as “Dumsor”.
The Institute of Energy Security (IES) has warned that the disruption in power supply is about to happen during this season of coronavirus pandemic.
The Institutes has therefore advised the government to adequately resource electricity service provide in order to prevent the catastropohy.
Research and Policy Analyst at the Institute, Raymond Nuworkpor, in reaction to the president’s promise to provide a reduced electricity tariff to Ghanaians said that there could be chaos if the government fails to pay up the said amount to the service providers on time.
In an interview with a one of the media, Ghanaown.com monitored, he said;
“For this policy to come to effect, the government must rst make available resource funding to the three entities in the supply chain so that they will be to give us consistent power, but unfortunately, we don’t know whether funds have been made available to them and that’s the problem now because even before the president made the announcement, we understood that, the IPP’s and the rest were unable to get gas supply from Nigeria because of liquidity challenges and Jubilee [eld] too is unable to produce enough gas to power our thermal plants so if the government doesn’t make funds available to these entities, it will be difcult.”
