The lights are going to stay on – ECG MD assures Ghanaians

Published

on

Amidst challenges in the energy sector, the Managing Director of the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG), Samuel Dubik Mahama has assured the public of concerted efforts to ensure a reliable power supply.

His statement comes at a time when Ghana, like some countries, grapples with occasional power outages, which can disrupt daily life and business operations. With individuals and  industries relying heavily on a stable power supply to operate efficiently, any disruptions can have significant ramifications for productivity and livelihoods.

The MD reiterated that there are currently no power outages, commonly known as “dumsor,” taking place in the country. According to him, there is no ongoing load-shedding, despite certain reports suggesting otherwise.

Demands for a load-shedding timetable have not yielded any results as both the ECG and the Minister of Energy, Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh, insist that the power distributor is not shedding load.

In an earlier communiqué, ECG stated that some 630 of its overloaded transformers were to blame for the power cuts, but its Managing Director,
told journalists after a meeting with the Mines and Energy Committee of Parliament that the challenges with the transformers have been addressed.

“The assurance is that we are doing our best. The lights are going to stay on. Most of the transformers that we spoke about and the intensification exercises are almost done.

“So we should just stay positive. There will be a proper statement as to the way forward. We are currently not shedding load. So we are not shedding load,” he said.
