There has never been ‘dumsor’ and there will never be, due to NAPO’s excellence as Energy Minister – Akufo-Addo


President Akufo-Addo has asserted that under the leadership of Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh, also known as NAPO, as Energy Minister, Ghana has effectively put an end to the recurring issue of power outages, locally referred to as ‘Dumsor.’

Speaking at the grand unveiling of NAPO as the running mate for Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, the president emphasized that the country has maintained a stable power supply due to NAPO’s exemplary performance.

“There has never been dumsor and there will never be due to NAPO’s excellence as Energy Minister,” President Akufo-Addo stated firmly, countering claims that the power crisis has resurged. “Yes, there have been a few occasions, but he has done his best to ensure that power in our country was online.”

During the unveiling event at Kumasi Jubilee Park on Tuesday, July 9, the President highlighted his pivotal role in preparing Dr. Opoku Prempeh for his current position.

By assigning him transformative initiatives, including the implementation of the Free Senior High School policy, Akufo-Addo believes he set the stage for NAPO’s successful tenure as Energy Minister.

“I knew he could do it; that is why I assigned that task to him, and he executed it beautifully. He also did remarkably well when I made him Energy Minister,” the President said, praising NAPO’s capabilities and contributions.

The event, attended by the Overlord of the Asante Kingdom, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, marked the formal introduction of Dr. Opoku Prempeh as the running mate of the NPP’s flagbearer.

The Asantehene praised NAPO for his hard work and modesty, attributing these qualities to his upbringing within the royal family of Asanteman.

Otumfuo Osei Tutu II also underscored the significance of loyalty and humility, urging NAPO to remain supportive of Dr. Bawumia. “Don’t let Bawumia regret choosing you,” he advised. “Be humble, listen to him, and do as he says.”

Dr. Bawumia, who formally informed the National Officers of the NPP about his selection of Dr. Opoku Prempeh on July 1, 2024, received unanimous approval from the party’s National Executive Council.

This decision has been met with enthusiasm, particularly among the people of the Ashanti Region, who are proud to see a royal from Asanteman chosen as the running mate.
