Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko, member of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) has warned that there will be consequences in next year's elections if the government fails to tackle the current power crisis. He said the NDC stands to benefit if Nana Addo's government fails in halting the power outages, popularly known as dumsor.
He said just as Ghanaians voted out the Mahama-led administration for various reasons including their inability to resolve the four-year 'dumsor', the same can happen to any government that will not be able to deal with any energy crisis in the country.
In a post on social media, Otchere-Darko wrote: "However, history tells us that when you give a deadline deliver on it! It has serious political consequences if you don’t! The nightmare of over 4 years of dumsor under the NDC is still alive in our memories. Please note: only John Mahama and his campaign will ‘benefit’ from a resurrection of dumsor!".
However, the Minister of Energy, John Peter Amewu has assured that the power outages are just temporal and it will be fixed in two weeks.
