Debate on dumsor resurfaces as NDC challenges Bawumia’s assertion on resolving power crisis

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has taken issue with Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia’s recent assertion that the Akufo-Addo administration successfully resolved Ghana’s power crisis, colloquially known as ‘dumsor‘.

Dismissing Dr. Bawumia’s claim as inaccurate, the NDC urged Ghanaians to disregard it, emphasizing their view that the power crisis was effectively tackled during the tenure of former President John Mahama.

In a press statement issued in response to Dr. Bawumia’s remarks made during his address as the presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) on Wednesday, February 7, the NDC contested the Vice President’s claims.

Dr. Bawumia had highlighted the achievements of the current government, including the resolution of ‘dumsor’, attributing this accomplishment to a decisive and deliberate government program aimed at stabilizing the economy and addressing societal challenges.

In contrast, the NDC praised former President John Mahama as a visionary leader who took responsibility for the power crisis and implemented measures to address it, ultimately ending load shedding by 2016.

“The visionary and experienced Nation Builder, President Mahama accepted responsibility for the problem and promised to fix it. Indeed, by 2016 he had comprehensively fixed dumsor and ended load shedding,” the NDC stated in their press release.

The dispute underscores ongoing political debates surrounding the handling of the power crisis in Ghana. As the country prepares for the upcoming elections, contrasting narratives regarding the resolution of ‘dumsor’ are likely to remain a focal point of contention between the major political parties.
