Ghana hasn’t forgotten the ‘dumsor’ experienced under Mahama – NPP’s Ahiagbah


Director of Communications for the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Richard Ahiagbah, has said members of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) should be the last to point fingers at the government over the erratic power cuts experienced in recent times.

According to him, Ghanaians suffered under the Mahama-led administration during the ‘dumsor’ era in 2015.

Richard Ahiagbah, however, admitted that the power outages Ghanaians were experiencing in recent times have been frustrating but the situation will come to an abrupt end.

He explained that the maintenance works in the energy sector were almost completed and Ghanaians will soon enjoy uninterrupted power supply.

In a post on X sighted by GhanaWeb Business, Richard Ahiagbah said, “The recent power outages have been understandably frustrating. However, there is an end in sight. The maintenance works are almost complete, and we can soon expect access to an uninterrupted power supply around the clock, as we have become accustomed to under the Akufo-Ad
do-Bawumia administration. The NDC is the last political organization to point fingers because Ghana has not forgotten the hurts of the ‘real dumsor’, suffered under H.E. Mahama.”

Ahiagbah’s comment comes after the Member of Parliament for Ningo-Prampram, Sam George, in a post on social media said the state of affairs has exposed government’s mismanagement of the power sector.

He referred to ‘dumsor’, among others, as “A sting in the tale. A nail in the casket. A dirge of failure. An irrefutable lived experience.”
