The main opposition, New Patriotic Party has announced that it will hit the streets to demonstrate against what it calls government’s incompetence in managing the power crisis in the country.

The massive demonstration tagged ‘Wo Gbo’ meaning we are dying is to be held on 18th February, 2015 and also to express displeasure at how government is tackling the energy crisis.

At a press conference in Accra, General Secretary of the party, Kwabena Agyapong indicated that the impact of what has become known as ‘dumsor’ was taking a very negative toll on businesses and on individuals.

According to Mr. Agyapong, “business owners like artisanal Ghanaians, sprayers, barbers, seamstresses etc are hardest hit by these power outages and this is killing businesses.

“Health facilities, schools, companies and other institutions that depend on power to operate are suffering at the hands of this government which has shown clear insensitivity.

He said the New Patriotic Party as a responsible stakeholder in the Ghanaian political scene, wants to bring the deep suffering of the people of this country to the attention of the government.

“Ghanaians are not happy with how government is managing the ongoing power crisis. I don’t think government understands what Ghanaians are going through…And the worst is they don’t  even want to explain or indicate when the issue will be resolved…and so we will be embarking on this demonstration to express our displeasure…we need to show them that we are not happy with how they are handling the situation.

“We are calling on civil societies, unemployed youth, people of varied political ideologies and indeed members of the NDC who are also feeling the frustration of the power crisis to join us on February 18 to demonstrate over the issue”, he added.
