The Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II has said the current power rationing also known as Dumsor in the Ashanti region has destroyed all his home appliances.
He told the Energy Minister Mathew Opoku Prempeh when he paid a courtesy call on him at the Manhyia palace on Wednesday December 1.
“It is my prayer that you will work to address this matter because if the country will develop it will depend on the energy. The frequent power outages have destroyed all my appliance,” he told the Energy Minister.
It is recalled that Dr Mathew Opoku Prempeh recently said that the country would never return to the days of the erratic power supply that was christined in the local parlance ‘dumsor’
Although he admits that there are few challenges in the power sector that need to be addressed, the country will not go through that period of energy rationing due to the measures taken by this administration.
“The feedback that I am picking is that when it is even raining the lights are on,” he told TV3’s Johnnie Hughes on the New Day show on Thursday November 18.
He stressed “Dumsor is never going to be back.”
