Instead Of Mahama’s Four Years Of “Dumsor,” We Are Living In The Era Of “Dum Siesie” – NAPO

Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh (NAPO), the Minister of Energy, has drawn a clear distinction between the nation’s present unpredictable power supply situation and the one that existed under previous President John Dramani Mahama.

The energy minister reportedly said that the current power problem in the nation is very different from the one that existed under Mahama and was dubbed “dumsor,” according to reports from

He clarified that Ghanaians had to suffer an unprecedented four years of prolonged blackouts punctuated by brief bursts of energy during Mahama’s reign. He called the existing state of affairs, which entails brief power outages to fix problems, “dum siesie.”

We had already progressed from the days of having only six hours of electricity and 72–96 hours without power when I started working in the ministry. The ‘dum siesie’ period that we are currently living in is very different from the ‘dumsor’ era, he stressed.

“Dumsor” was only encountered while His Excellency John Dramani Mahama was in office. He went on, “He is the only president in history to subject the nation to continuous power outages during his four-year term.”

The minister emphasized that unbiased Ghanaians would concur that the present electricity crisis facing the Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo administration was not nearly as bad as Mahama’s.

“I question someone’s perception of reality if they claim that the current situation is worse, without prejudice,” he said in closing.
