Angry legislators have  called on the Speaker to direct for investigations on the cause of the outage,the second such to hit the house this year.

The Member of Parliament for Komenda Edina Eguafo Abirem, Nana Ato Arthur who spoke to Adom FM described the erratic power supply situation as unacceptable.

 

He underscored the need for the House to be briefed on the power situation in Parliament at their next sitting.

Ghana has been hit by power crisis that has led to a nationwide load shedding exercise, which many claim has affected businesses.
