A former Rector of the Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA) and former Board Chairman of the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) Prof Stephen Adei has added his voice to the ongoing debate on power crisis.

The Educationist said the current power crisis is not as bad as the former President John Dramani Mahama led NDC era.

He said the situation is not like the previous time but if proper measures are not taken, it will be very worse.

Speaking in an interview with TV3 on Tuesday, April 23, the Economist the government should have a national strategic agenda to manage the power crisis.

“It is quite unfortunately, we should be very careful, it is not as bad as dumsor days but if we don’t (take it will be very worse so the first thing is that to look at, if there are bottlenecks which are not allowing us to use the existing capacity to the fullest, must be addressed. But in the long run, we must have a national strategic agenda.” Prof. Adei said.

He also advised the government to choose as an option and improve the efficiency of the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG).

“You can go solar, immediately the government should allow all solar panels and anything to do with it import-free because in the end the country and the government will win. We must have a strategy to make sure that we have a long-term solution and the efficiency of the ECG has to improve.” Prof. Adei indicted.

Ghanaians have been experiencing a power crisis in recent times.

Many people are calling on the ECG to release a load-shedding time table for them to manage their daily activities.

Professor Stephen Adei comment follows the Director of Communication for the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Richard Ahiagbah earlier statement.

Richard Ahiagbah wrote on his X that the NDC is the last political organization to point fingers because Ghana has not forgotten the hurts of the “real dumsor,” suffered under former president Mahama administration.

He said maintenance works are almost complete and Ghanaians can soon expect access to an uninterrupted power supply

“The recent power outages have been understandably frustrating. However, there is an end in sight. The maintenance works are almost complete, and we can soon expect access to an uninterrupted power supply around the clock, as we have become accustomed to under the Akufo-Addo-Bawumia Administration. The NDC is the last political organization to point fingers because Ghana has not forgotten the hurts of the “real dumsor,” suffered under H.E. Mahama.” Richard Ahiagbah wrote.
