Upgrading of power system cause of recent ‘dumsor’ – Prempeh


Energy Minister Dr Mathew Opoku Prempeh has indicated that the current power outages in parts of Ghana is a result of the ongoing upgrade of the power systems to meet growing needs.

Dr Prempeh said this today, Tuesday, 20 April 2021, when he was joined by the Minister of Information, Mr Kojo Oppong-Nkrumah, and officials from MiDA, GRIDCo and ECG to inspect the progress of the Pokuase Bulk Supply Point (BSP) currently under construction.

This project, which commenced 18 months ago, is the 5th BSP in Accra and its completion is expected to improve the quality and reliability of power supply in Legon, Pokuase, Nsawam, Kwabenya and its environs.

“I trust that Ghanaians will continue to bear with the power service providers as they strive to keep to the barest minimum the inconveniences while maintenance work progresses,” Dr Prempeh told the media.
