Kweku Baako, Editor-In-Chief of the New Crusading Guide newspaper has said that critics of the Dumsor vigil are pathetic.

The #DumsorMustStop vigil, championed by three Ghanaian celebrities – Yvonne Nelson, Sarkodie and Lydia Forson – is to put pressure on the John Mahama-led administration to solve the erratic supply of electricity which has lingered on for close to three years.

While some believe the move is spot on, others say it is needless since it will not be a solution to the power cuts.

Notable among the critics are ex-president of Ghana Actors Guild, Nii Odoi Mensah who has said the procession will amount to nothing so the celebrities should stop as President Mahama is making frantic efforts to bring Ghana back to full illumination; stand-up comedian, David Oscar who has said he will not be hypocritical and join the protest adding that “constant whining and whimpering would not act as a magic wand”.

Apart from the aforementioned, some members of the ruling National Democratic Congress have spewed “infamous” comments aimed at demeaning the leader of the protest – Yvonne Nelson.Speaking on the issue on Multi TV and Joy FM's Newsfile, the veteran journalist said the critics must screw up their heads.“I pity them. They are pathetic.

They need to be forgiven. They don’t understand democracy” “The clergy is talking, labour is talking, students are talking, today we have artistes, musicians and movie stars”.

“Everybody is talking. The impact is huge”“Those who are out there making ugly noises….need to get their head screwed up”, he noted.

Organizers have said that the vigil is a non-partisan event which seeks to give an amplified voice to the many Ghanaians who are afflicted by the phenomenon of the current power crisis in the country.

Celebrities expected to join the May 16 vigil include Yvonne Nelson, Sarkodie, Ama K. Abebrese, DKB, Kweku Elliot, D-Black, Eddie Watson, Becca, Deborah Vanessa, Efya, Kwaw Kese, EL, Nikki Samonas, Van Vicker, XO Senavoe, Confidence Haugen and many more.
