NDC Ended ‘Dumsor’; Stop Deceiving Ghanaians – Mahama Tells NPP Gov’t
Former President John Dramani Mahama has said the energy crisis, which became popularly known as ‘dumsor’, was resolved by his administration, not the Akufo-Addo government.
He has therefore called on the New Patriotic Party (NPP) to stop deceiving Ghanaians that their government resolved the power crisis.
Addressing delegates of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Adentan constituency as part of his five-day campaign tour of the Greater Accra Region, Mr Mahama described as false claims by NPP officials that they resolved ‘dumsor’.
He said the Nana Addo government has not added a single generation capacity of electricity to Ghana’s power generation and therefore cannot claim to have fixed the energy crisis.
According to him, every single additional generation capacity of electricity currently in Ghana was put in place by the NDC administration.
The ex-president pointed to the Ameri power and KarPower plants as evidence to his claim that his administration solved the power crisis before being voted out of office.
Mr Mahama was hopeful that the NDC will return to power in 2020 and urged members of the party to unite and work hard for victory.
He also committed himself to working hard to reduce the high cost of living in the country as well as provide jobs, when elected in the next elections.
