The former Member of Parliament for the Tamale Central Constituency and former Deputy Power Minister under the erstwhile NDC government, Inusah Fuseini, has expressed his disappointment in the management of the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) for consistently refusing to release a load shedding schedule to help Ghanaians plan their lives.

He made these comments following the Electricity Company of Ghana’s (ECG) denial of power outages, commonly known as “dumsor,” occurring in the country.

The Managing Director, Samuel Dubik Mahama, told journalists after a meeting with the Mines and Energy Committee of Parliament that the challenges with the transformers had been addressed and that there is no ongoing load-shedding, despite certain reports suggesting otherwise.

Speaking on the Daybreak Upper East show, Mr. Fuseini said that even if the issue is related to transformers, it would still be appropriate to provide Ghanaians with a power rationing schedule to enable them to plan their lives.

He said, “The ECG is a service provider, and when you provide us with service, people pay, and you realize that you will encounter difficulties because some of your machines are out for service. Due to the current situation, we can’t afford to buy fuel, and the gas is not coming. Some machines are faulty, so we have less power. This is the problem. You are mentioning transformers. Even if it were transformers, wouldn’t it be proper to inform your customers why we are experiencing these issues? The customers ask for information on when they should expect and not expect power so that we can organize ourselves. Is it wrong to ask?”
