“We met with the police yesterday and agreed on security arrangements for the protest. We are by this press conference urging Ghanaians who are suffering from the erratic power supply to join us at the entrance of the University of Ghana at 2PM on Saturday to drum home our message that the government is being dishonest with the current power situation,” he said.

“People are incurring losses at their workplaces due to dumsor yet the government keeps lying that the power crisis is over…We all know the government owes power producers and has no funds to settle the debts,” he added.

Many Ghanaians are expected to join the protest to express their displeasure to the government over the power outages.
