'Dumsor' can only be solved if NPP and NDC do this [Opinion]

In 2015, Ghana experienced a terrific moment of intermittent power supply under the leadership of former president John Dramani Mahama. Many Ghanaians criticised him for improper handling of the case. A lot of media personnel and movie stars expressed their displeasure over the issue as many were seen on the streets to demonstrate against the then government.

This triggered Ghanaians to campaign for change of government. It became an issue of concern so truly, Ghanaians were yearning for change. It was getting closer to elections so a lot of people were eager to vote for the change they are looking for. Lo and Behold, in 2016 change came as people were expecting. His Excellency Nana Addo-Dankwa Akufo Addo was voted to power on the ticket of New Patriotic Party.

The issue of power outages subsided and the lights were stable. His excellency and his government officials were applauded for the kind of work done. But the NDC on the other hand claimed they solved the issue of dumsor before leaving office. The dust were settled on that issue because the government who did that does not matter. What matters most is the development and the betterment of the Nation.

Currently, Ghana is experiencing the same problem again. There is intermittent power supply nationwide and citizens are worried because they thought it was a thing of the past. The electricity company of Ghana has given out the time table of various areas that will be affected.

This is a clear indicator that, Dumsor is a critical issue that needs no politics. The actual problem has to be tackled to resolve it once and for all. Both parties have to stop politicking and politicising about the whole thing so that they can collaborate and come out with the best results. Dumsor goes against everyone in the country because, electricity is very important and useful in the present day Ghana. If this is done and we stop the blame game, things will be minimised and reinstated.
