Chairman Wontumi sets records straight on dumsor

By on

Ashanti Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Mr. Bernard Antwi-Boasiako – fondly called Chairman Wontumi – has responded to former President Mahama for claiming that his administration fixed Ghana’s power crisis before exiting power. 

He thus advised former President Mahama to remain mute and concentrate on saving his blemished image rather than trying to take credit for the strides President Akufo-Addo and vice President Bawumia have made to solve the energy crisis in Ghana.

Over the past months, Chairman Wontumi has been explaining that the current NPP administration has brought relative stability to the power sector in place of the erratic power situation it inherited.

The NPP regional chair stated that the former president deserves no attention since he created dumsor (power crisis) and went as far as blaming the crisis on usage of mobile phones in the country. 

He added, “When Ghanaians began to question the former president and seek answers, he told us that we should blame the energy crisis in the country on the increasing mobile phone usage in Ghana. Today Nana Akufo-Addo has solved the issue so he wants to take credit for it. He should stop telling lies for once in his life”. 

It would be recalled that former President Mahama, in an address to a Ghanaian community in Gambia whilst on a state visit, stated that the number of mobile phones in the country superseded the total population in Ghana, hence taking a huge toll on the meager megawatts of power in the country.

According to the former president, “Ghana’s population is 25 million, but statistics indicates that mobile phone lines in Ghana is over 27 million and these phones are charged every night, and this is one of the causes of the load-shedding…,” Wontumi recalled.

He therefore, challenged, “Former President Mahama must have short memories. He should come out and tell us the measures he put in place to solve energy crisis we experienced under him

According to Mr. Antwi-Boasiako, under the leadership of former President Mahama, killer tarrifs were introduced; stunting the growth of businesses and driving the progress of Ghana “backwards.”
