The Minority Spokesperson on Mines and Energy, Adam Mutawakilu wants the Energy Minister, John Peter Amewu to resign over the recent power challenges. The Damongo MP, who attributes the recent power outages to liquidity challenges, said the Energy Minister’s latest promise to resolve the issues in the sector in some five days time must not be taken seriously.
“We are expecting him to tend in his resignation because in November he promised us and it did not happen and he is still promising and you are taking it? We do not need to take him serious,” Mutawakilu said.
The Damango MP also asked the government to be candid with Ghanaians and release a load shedding timetable following the recent power outages across the country.
Mr. Mutawakilu said the recent power outages are a reflection of the financial troubles facing the energy sector due to government’s inability to clear its debt.
Addressing journalists on what many fear may be a return of the erratic power supply also known as “dumsor” Adam Mutawakilu said a load shedding timetable should be announced to at least help consumers plan their activities.
