Prof Emmanuel Martey claims he could fix dumsor in three months if he was the President of Ghana.
The Moderator of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana, Prof Emmanuel Martey has said he could fix Ghana’s current energy crisis (dumsor) in three months if he was the President of Ghana.
Listen, Ghana is not a big country to fix this problem. In four months you can solve it; at most (in) six months…
“If I were in charge, within three months I will solve the problem,” the plain-talking Chairman of the Christian Council of Ghana said on Sunday when he preached to the Akyem Old Tafo Grace Church in the Eastern region.
He wondered why the Government is unable to use most of the loans it had contracted or was in the process of contracting to fix the power crisis.
“…Look at the loans we are borrowing, this is a crisis, why can’t we use the loans to fix it? Then you tell us you will fix it, when?”
Ghana is currently shedding between 400 and 700 Megawatts of power during off-peak and peak periods, respectively.
The crisis has come about as a result of poor water levels in the three hydro-electric power stations; lack of gas flow from the West Africa Gas Pipeline in Nigeria to thermal plants in Ghana for production; as well as the breakdown of some plants.
