Member of Parliament (MP) for Lower Manya Krobo on the ticket of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Ebenezer Teye Larbi says he was surprised at the exaggeration given to the effects of Ghana’s energy crisis.

His shock, he said, stems from the fact that it was persons who cannot afford basic household electrical gadgets such as air conditions and fridges who are rather exaggerating the effects of the crisis.

The effects of Dumsor are “exaggerated by people who cannot afford to buy fridges or air conditions in their homes,” he said.

The NDC Legislator who was reacting to cries on the government to end the crisis on Asempa FM’s Ekosii FM programme further called on Ghanaians to rather invest their “energies into thinking” outside the box than lamenting over the impact of the power crisis.

The NPP’s Director of Communications, Nana Akomea blamed the Mahama-led administration for worsening the plight of Ghanaians by failing to address the power crisis.

But in a quick rebuttal, Mr. Teye Larbi said the NPP is rather creating a mountain out of an anthill for political expediency.

In his view, the current power crisis is better than what the country went through in 1983.

Instead of lamenting on the non-existent impact of the dumsor, the Lower Manya Krobo urged Ghanaians to be smart.

“Lets invest our energies in thinking about how to be smart in the dumsor. The effects of dumsor have been over flogged,” he stressed.

Ebenezer Teye Larbi said the dumsor crisis will ease in August because Mahama-led administration is working assiduously to fix the problem.
