Technocrats in this nation are not good enough and the political elite are not proactive leaders else we will not have dumso which began a long time ago.

Mahama is not smart else he will tell the nation about Ghana recession due to lowered revenue from lowered cocoa, gold and oil prices at the same time.

What Ghanaians can do now is to use energy as a scarce resource and resolve to pay taxes like their western counterparts do .

To me if I were president Mahama I would use all revenues from oil to source for a generational income earning sourced from power generation to produce energy and sell to west Africa by building a power plants that will produce much more than Ghana needs. Thus approach solves dumso and Keri's it away whilst we gain another revenue source like cocoa.

Cheap energy will bring in more revenue because manufacturers will troop to Ghana and set shop because we have cheap labour like the east.

We need to produce 15 gigawatts to sustain us for the next 50 years since our power demand rate is at rate of 12% and will go up with time.

Use Virgil to educate celebs and Ghanaians on saving energy rather.
