At least 70 percent of the country was plunged into total darkness Wednesday night following a major power outage.


Ing. William Amuna, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Ghana Grid Company Limited, who confirmed to local media, could not determine the cause of the outage.

He observed the major concern for his outfit was to restore power to the various homes and businesses for the situation to normalize.

Ing. Amuna assured the GRIDco would work around the clock to delve into the matter and assign reason(s) for the Wednesday night power failure.

It must be noted that Ghana suffered from erratic power supply which was locally referred to as ‘dumsor’ for almost four years.

The situation affected domestic consumers and various businesses leading to job cuts in a number of establishments across the country.
Prior to the country’s 2016 presidential and parliamentary elections, the power situation improved a little.

The new government led by Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo made it a major priority to fix the erratic power supply.

Power supply in the country has been somewhat constant and the Energy Minister, Boakye Agyarko says the country was not out of the woods yet in terms of electricity supply but the government has put in place measures to ensure constant electricity supply. Enditem
