The presidential candidate of the Progressive Peoples’ Party (PPP), Papa Kwesi Nduom has said there is no end in sight yet for the current power crisis the country is grappling with.

He said that even problems related to the generation of power, if solved, will not help matters because distribution equipment installed several years ago have not been renewed to meet the current power demands.

In Dr. Nduom’s estimation, it will take the country years to end the power crisis.

The power crisis, which has persisted since 2012 due to generation shortfalls, has collapsed several jobs.

Speaking at the Presidential Debate organized by the National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE) and the Ghana Broadcasting Corporation (GBC), Nduom said, "We are talking about putting in a comprehensive solution for the power sector, we still have a power crisis in this country."

He argued that if government begins to pay its debt to the ECG the power challenge will be partly solved adding that a PPP government will solve the power challenge in five years.

On the part of President John Mahama, he noted that, "If we strike a balance with the utilities you may find out government doesn't owe them. Probably they may owe government. The maximum that experts say we can generate from wind mills is 100MW."
