Mahama fixed 'Dumsor', not your Ignorant Government - NDC to Bawumia

The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has challenged Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia’s claim that the Akufo-Addo government effectively resolved the country’s electricity crisis, also known as dumsor.
The NDC dismissed Dr. Bawumia’s remark, urging Ghanaians to discard it as false.

Dr. Bawumia, the New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) presidential candidate, praised the current administration’s accomplishments, including the supposed settlement of dumsor, during his address on Wednesday, February 7.

He ascribed this achievement to a decisive and deliberate government programme.

“We started with a clear, decisive and deliberate programme to, among other things, stabilise the economy, fix dumsor, fix the NHIS, fix the roads, clear the arrears, make education free and accessible, significantly enhance social protection for the vulnerable in society, industrialise our economy, tackle youth unemployment and empower farmers,” he went on to say.

In response, the NDC issued a press statement disputing Dr. Bawumia’s assertions, claiming that the power problem was resolved under the reign of former President John Mahama, whom they praised as a nation builder.

“To the contrary, the facts show that the NDC/Mahama government set DUMSOR. Note that Ghana recorded DUMSOR in 1984, 1997, and 2006-2007 before the problem reoccurred in 2012 due to an interruption in the West African Gas pipeline, resulting in a power generation shortage.”

“President Mahama, a visionary and accomplished Nation Builder, acknowledged responsibility for the situation and committed to address it. Indeed, by 2016, he had completely resolved DUMSOR and eliminated load shedding.”

To do this, he brought in power facilities like Ameri, Karpower, and others, increasing the nation’s generating capacity by more than 800 Megawatts.

The NPP, which includes Bawumia, even accuses Mahama of giving Ghana excessive power, or what they refer to as surplus capacity, today.
