No Load-Shedding Timetable coming – ECG-MD

The managing director of the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) says, there is not load-shedding currently ongoing in Ghana.

While Ghanaians thinks otherwise as they are faced with almost daily power cut, known in local parlance as ‘Dumsor’, Mr. Samuel Dubik Mahama has reiterated that there is no need for a load-shedding timetable.

He has therefore urged Ghanaians to stay positive as the company works assiduously to fix the challenges.

“The assurance is that we are doing our best. The lights are going to stay on. Most of the transformers that we spoke about and the intensification exercises are almost done.

“So we should just stay positive. There will be a proper statement as to the way forward. We are currently not shedding load. So we are not shedding load.”

In a press release by the ECG, it stated that some 630 of its overloaded transformers were to blame for the power cuts, but its Managing Director, Samuel Dubik Mahama, told journalists after a meeting with the Mines and Energy Committee of Parliament that the challenges with the transformers have been addressed.

Issues of power stability has become topical in Ghana as the country continue to face unreliable electricity supply.

The phenomenon which heightened between 2013 – 2016 affected many businesses as well as households in the country.
