Gabby Gets "Blasted" Online With Reactions After Saying Ghanaians Want To Pay More To Avoid Dumsor

One of the major reasons why Mahama was voted out of power was because of the intermittent power supply that was experienced all over the country coupled with a persistent increase in the electricity tariffs. That is, there were no lights yet, but Ghanaians were still paying more.

Recently, there was an announcement that there would be an increase in the tariffs of utilities. Today, a leading member of the New Patriotic Party has finally reacted to this announcement and what he said has triggered some massive reactions from Ghanaians.

He once again began the blame and equalization game by indirectly bringing the National Democratic Congress into it just to score some cheap political points. Gabby Otchere Darko explained that based on what he has heard from the grounds, Ghanaians are happy and Ghanaians have expressed excitement to pay this increased tariff just because the government has solved dumsor.

"I am encouraged by the reaction of the Ghanaian people to the 27% increase in electricity tariffs. It shows when you do well, they appreciate, like efforts by the government to keep the lights on and tariffs low in spite of the major challenges and will pay a little more to avoid dumsor"

However, here lies the case where the Mahama government solved the Dumsor problem, a problem he had inherited from previous governments, before leaving office. Yet, the NPP has refused to give credit to Mahama for what he has done.

The question that we must ask Gabby Otchere Darko is, which group of Ghanaians told him that they were happy to pay more? Gabby Otchere Darko, if he wants to play politics with this issue, must do it practically. Theoretically, Gabby Otchere Darko was right to put out that statement. However, we are in a practical world and he must know that with this current rate of inflation, no rational Ghanaian will be happy to pay more. Check out some other reactions.
