‘Dumsor’ wouldn’t have returned under NDC– John Jinapor

A former Deputy Minister for Power, John Jinapor, has said the current incessant power cuts in most parts of the country would never had happened under a National Democratic Congress (NDC) government if they had won the 2016 elections. According to him, the NDC would have been more assertive and effective in managing the situation in a way that would not result in the present situation.

Speaking to Montie FM, he said although the NDC faced a more challenging situation, it managed it better to prevent Ghanaians from experiencing the full impact.

He lamented that the NDC government in anticipation of the scheduled maintenance works, but the NPP government unfortunately fired the CEO of the Authority immediately it came to office.

Speaking on the floor of parliament on Tuesday, February 28, 2017 on the same subject in relation to a statement from the Ministry of Energy that stated that ‘dumsor’ wasn’t over with the election of a new government, Mr. Jinapor said that the NDC worked tirelessly the whole of last year and we had reliable and sustainable energy. The FPSO went off for two months and we never had dumsor.

He said the NDC took over power in 2009 when access to electricity was about 50%, but today as he speaks, access to electricity is 83.5% second to only South Africa.

He also added that, dumsor is not yet gone and it is not the fault of the NDC. He stressed that, the way this dumsor issue is being handled is very frustrating.

“The way we are handling this dumsor issue is very frustrating. Why are we living in a country and we are thinking that, we can take someone source of energy to be ours to solve our problems”.

President Addo appointed Mr. Boakye Agyarko to fish out where the problem is and the way to solve it. Moreover, he is not a technical in energy but rather, his own is in the financial way.

He also lamented that, Prez Addo knows that the problem in the energy sector is cost rather than technical.
