In Ghana, "dumsor" is a persistent, irregular and unpredictable electric power outage.
It became a nightmare to the whole public, jobs were collapsing, people were loosing their jobs, fear and panic were on the shoulders of every ghanaian. It all started in 2012 when the country experienced "dumsor" alongside it developmental progress due to inadequate power generation capacity of power supply.
Many companies choose to buy generators instead of wasting time on unpredictable
Power outage in the country, the generator were used as standby incase there is outage of power. Some companies were unable to buy such such technology advancement which cause them to close up their companies, workers also lay off from work
because their their salaries were used to fuel up the generators, the economic impact could be seen everywhere.
In June 2014 a deal was signed with Karpowership to add 455MW to the grid to help make electricity stable, time passed the Akuffo Addo's government sworn into power in 2017, their government criticized the Mahama's government calling it incompetence, the aim of the Akuffo Addo's government was to make our electricity stable for us, we are not concerned by any party to bring an end to "dumsor" because we are not going to such horrible situation again.
WHAT IS HAPPENING TODAY
The lights are not stable, but we are been told is not "dumsor" but a maintenance by GRIDCO and ECG to help increase stability of the power supply. Who knows? What about the blackout was it also a maintenance work, we are hoping that it is advancement in our electricity supply system. So generally is the "dumsor" due to lack of skilled engineers or due to power distribution companies involving in politics.
