Only the Energy Minister can order the dumsor timeline – Osafo-Maafo

Yaw Osafo-Maafo, Senior Presidential Advisor, stated that the Energy Minister has the authority to decide whether or not to release a load-shedding schedule.

He emphasized that, although he is in charge of the generation, only the energy minister has the power to mandate the publication. A load-shedding schedule can be put into place, he continued.

“To publish the rationing of the power, nobody can do it except the Minister of Energy because he is seeing the generation and they [ECG] are looking at the utilization. So, they can look at it and say that in this particular area, this is how it should be done.

“But it is something which can be done because it is what you have and what you have to use and the spread it,” the Senior Presidential Advisor said on the sidelines of a forum on open government partnerships and construction sector transparency in Accra, on Tuesday, April 23.

Requests for a schedule have been turned down by Dr. Opoku Prempeh, who maintains that there are no power outages in the nation.

Alexander Afenyo-Markin, the majority leader in parliament, has given assurances that the government is aggressively addressing the persistent, irregular power disruptions.

Afenyo-Markin stated that he believed the government could manage and resolve the issue in an efficient manner. He cited other instances in which comparable problems were effectively resolved following the election of a new administration.

Speaking to reporters in Accra on Friday, April 19, the Effutu MP emphasized the government’s track record of sustaining a reliable power supply even under trying conditions.

Ghana has been dealing with “Dumsor” for a few months, and businesses have expressed concerns about its detrimental effects.
