He said it is incumbent on him as the leader of the country to solve problems.

“If you look at the energy sector, people keep talking about ‘dumsor’ but I will not blame anyone. I am the one who was voted as President of Ghana so I will confront it and fix it,” Mahama added.

He said government has embarked on several measures to ensure availability of uninterrupted power.

I “promise Ghanaians that very soon, we will enter into an era of energy security,” he noted.

The country has been battling with a crippling power supply for almost four years now.

Government officials and power authorities have attributed the situation to vandalised gas pipelines from Nigeria.
