Written by ...





Secretary-General of the Trades Union Congress (TUC), Dr Yaw Baah, has re-emphasised the need for action from President Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to address the ongoing power challenges also known as ‘dumsor‘.

At the Police Fitness Centre where the May Day celebration was held Wednesday, May 1, 2024, the TUC called on the President to address the challenge to bring relief to Ghanaians.

He said the ongoing power challenges, if not resolved quickly, will severely impact businesses and could lead to widespread unemployment.

He urged President Akufo-Addo and the government to take immediate steps to mitigate the effects of the situation.

“Mr President, my second appeal is about dumsor. Mr President, it is regrettable that the people of Ghana have to experience dumsor again after all that we went through in the past, we have to go through it again. Please do something about it now.”

Meanwhile, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, the flag bearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) for election 2024, has assured that the ongoing power crisis will soon be resolved.

In his remarks, Dr Bawumia reaffirmed the government’s commitment to addressing the outages once and for all.

Speaking at a breakfast meeting with NPP regional leaders ahead of the start of his nationwide tour in the Eastern Region on Monday, April 29, Dr Bawumia assured Ghanaians that the Energy Ministry is actively managing the challenges in the power sector.

“I know that there are challenges, we are going to work on them. Currently, we have issues with power, the assurance from the Minister for Energy is that those power challenges will very soon be a thing of the past, they are working at it,” he said.
