Some workers of the Power Distribution Service (PDS) have allegedly been attacked at Kokrobite in Accra as they worked to restore power to the area.
One of the staff sustained a cutlass wound on his face and was taken to the hospital on Saturday, a communications consultant at the Energy Ministry noted on Facebook.
“We plead with all Ghanaians and consumers of power to please be a bit more considerate in their actions. Yesterday, as staff of PDS/ECG worked to restore power to residents around krokrobite, they were attacked and beaten. One of the men working to restore power sustained a cutlass wound on his nose. This is very unfortunate.
As various teams are out in the field working to restore power in the problematic areas, please let’s guarantee their safety, so they can deliver for us. It is essential for our own good,” Nana Damoah wrote.
PDS, who just took over the management of electricity in the country from the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG), has been struggling to explain the sudden intermittent power supply in some parts of country.
In a recent statement they noted the outages is as a of the ongoing road construction at Pokuase and should be resolved in five days. They have dismissed claims that the country has been plunged into power crisis as was experienced some three years ago.
