IES Boss Tells Akufo-Addo That Your Remark That The “Dumsor Is Over” Is Misleading.

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s assertion that the nation’s irregular power supply problems, known as dumsor, had been entirely remedied has been deemed deceptive by the Executive Director of the Institute of Energy Security (IES).

Nana Amoasi VII thinks that although it is critical that the president restate his acknowledgement that the outages were “dumsor,” his aides ought to guide him rather than deceive him over the situation as it stands right now.


“The first item we selected from the president’s remarks is his admission today that there have been dumsor during his administration. Therefore, he was quite explicit in his assertion that the load shedding we are currently experiencing is most likely normal.

“It is misleading to claim that the issues have been resolved, and we hope the president’s advisors will guide him rather than deceive him.” In an interview with Citi News on May 1, the head of IES stated, “There are times when the president appears terrible to industry participants, observers, and even customers.


‘Dumsor is over and will not return,’ President Akufo-Addo declared in his speech on May 1 during the celebration of Workers’ Day.

He clarified that the Electricity Company of Ghana’s (ECG) completion of transformer maintenance work is what caused the current power disruptions to end.

However, the head of IES claimed that several locations covered by the president’s checks were already experiencing dumsor at the time the president was making the claim.


He enumerated several communities, mentioning Weija, Ekumfi, Mankessim, Nungua, and Tema Community 2 and 25, emphasizing that they had gone without power on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Akufo-Addo’s words:

“Problems pertaining to transformer maintenance have been fixed. Indeed, there was no load shedding reported anywhere yesterday, and the country’s electricity supply remained steady.

“I have faith that the regrettable days of dumsor will not recur,” Akufo-Addo declared during his speech.


In the meantime, the ECG released a statement clarifying that flooding at seven substations located throughout the capital was the reason for outages in certain areas of Accra.
