NPP sets Feb. 18 for ‘Dumsor’ demo
Following the massive public outcry over the erratic power supply in the country, the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has set February 18, 2015 to stage a demonstration over the issue.
The party claims the demonstration is also aimed at expressing their displeasure over the worsening economic situation in the country.
Leadership of the NPP announced this at a press conference held on Tuesday morning.
Ghana has been battling with power crisis for some time now; a situation which has compelled government to order emergency power badges in the country.
President Mahama has assured, he will do everything within his capacity to salvage the power situation which has bedeviled the nation, saying he is resolute on his promise.
A group calling itself concerned Ghanaians also announced that they will embark on a demonstration on Independence Day, 6th March, over similar issues.
According to them, “it is both shameful and embarrassing that, in the 21st Century, our pretensions of being taken seriously as an independent country are rendered a joke by the continual failure of ECG to provide a consistent supply of electricity.”
