I’ll fix 'dumsor' if I win - Akufo-Addo
Flagstaff House hopeful Nana Akufo-Addo has promised to fix the power crisis in the country if he is elected President in the December 7 polls.
According to him, the Mahama-led administration is embarrassed to admit that the power crisis still prevails in spite of the numerous assurances by the President.
Ghana has been reeling under severe power crisis for some time now. Even though the situation appears to have eased up, there is often uncertainty about the supply of power among Ghanaians.
In a series of tweets Monday, the NPP flagbearer said the crisis is not a technical problem but financial.
“The Mahama government, after claiming to have fixed the problem, is today embarrassed to admit that DUMSOR is still with us. The evidence is clear to all of us. We have evidence-based DUMSOR.
“I would like to assure you all that we will end DUMSOR by resolving the financial problems facing our utilities. The dumsor problem is ultimately a financial problem,” the former attorney general noted.
