Member of the opposition National Democratic Congress [NDC] communication team, Alhaji Haruna Halidu, has confirmed his believe that the current energy crisis would be solved by this government under the supervision of the Energy Minister, Boakye Agyarko.“I believe Hon. Boakye Agyarko will solve Ghana’s energy crisis due to his level of intellect in energy issues,” he said.
During a panel discussion on UTV’s ‘Adekye Nsroma’ programme, Haruna Halidu indicated that “the chance given to the New Patriotic Party [NPP] is to test their pulse on the numerous agitations made during their term of opposition before the 2016 elections.”
However, his political opponent on the programme, Dr Nana Ato Arthur, Member of Parliament (MP) for Komenda-Edina-Eguafo-Abrem, (KEEA) on the ticket of the NPP said “there was nothing like this kind of excessive energy crisis during the days of Ex-President John Agyekum Kuffour and the Late President John Evans Fiifi Atta Mills. Rather, it was the mismanagement of the economy by the previous government that brought about Dumsor.”
He added that let us all have hope in President Akufo-Addo’s government, especially with his pledge to fixing the Dumsor crisis.
