Yaw Boabeng Asamoah Calls on President to Acknowledge Dumsor Crisis Under His Presidency


In a bold statement, Yaw Boabeng Asamoah, a prominent member of the opposition, has called on President Nana Akufo-Addo to acknowledge the persistent power outages, locally known as “dumsor,” occurring under his presidency. Asamoah’s remarks come amidst growing frustration among Ghanaians over the recurrent electricity shortages plaguing the country in recent months.

Addressing the media, Asamoah highlighted the adverse effects of the ongoing power outages on businesses, households, and the overall economy. He criticized the government’s handling of the energy crisis, accusing the administration of failing to implement effective measures to address the root causes of the problem.

“As citizens continue to endure the hardships brought about by the dumsor phenomenon, it is imperative for President Akufo-Addo to acknowledge the reality of the situation and take decisive action to mitigate its impact,” Asamoah stated.

The opposition figure called for transparency and accountability in the management of Ghana’s energy sector, urging the government to provide clear explanations for the persistent blackouts and to outline concrete steps to resolve the crisis.

Asamoah’s remarks have reignited debate over the state of Ghana’s energy infrastructure and the government’s ability to ensure reliable electricity supply for its citizens. Critics argue that the recurrence of dumsor reflects systemic weaknesses in the country’s energy sector, including inadequate investment in infrastructure, poor maintenance practices, and mismanagement of resources.

In response to Asamoah’s comments, government officials have reaffirmed their commitment to resolving the dumsor crisis and ensuring stable electricity supply for all Ghanaians. They have cited various ongoing initiatives aimed at addressing the underlying causes of the power outages, including investments in renewable energy, improvements in distribution networks, and efforts to diversify the country’s energy sources.

The call by Yaw Boabeng Asamoah underscores the urgency of the situation and highlights the need for bipartisan cooperation to find lasting solutions to Ghana’s energy challenges. As the country grapples with the implications of the dumsor crisis, citizens are increasingly demanding accountability from their leaders and seeking assurances of a sustainable energy future.
