Dishonesty and hypocrisy are the reasons Ghana is not moving forward – Frank Ntui Fafa

Frank Ntui Fafa, a communication team member of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), shared his perspective on the current energy crisis that Ghanaians have been experiencing lately. He expressed that the power outages, commonly referred to as “Dumsor,” did not originate during the administration of former President John Dramani Mahama. It has been an issue since the time of the late former President Jerry John Rawlings and has continued through to the current administration.

According to Frank Ntui, different approaches were taken by past Ghanaian presidents to address power outages. During former President Jerry John Rawlings’ tenure, the crisis was resolved by adding 450 megawatts of energy to the national grid.

On the other hand, former President Kuffour requested for ‘Men of God’ to pray at the dam site to bring rain, which he subsequently added 80 megawatts to the grid. During the late President John Evans Atta Mill’s regime, TICO 3&4 added some megawatts to the grid, and before his demise, the Aburi Dam project added 250 megawatts. During Former President Mahama’s tenure, over 3,000 megawatts were added to the energy sector Frank Ntui said.

Frank Ntui, admits the Energy Minister Matthew Opoku Prempeh’s statement which says, “the solving of ‘dumsor’ problem is not an event but a process”. Meanwhile, under JM, he said, I am going to fix the energy problem”. The former President Did not blame any previous governments Ntui stressed.

Mr. Frank discussing the issue of energy, stated that as the population grows and urbanization occurs, people build houses and rely on energy. The expansion of the economy is dependent on bringing in investors and ensuring that local industries have constant energy to be able to blend and produce.

The current President has admitted that there is enough energy, indicating that the former President added enough grid to our National energy. It was expected of the current President to do the same, but he has not done so in the past 7 years. Mr. Frank concluded by saying that the NPP government has failed to add an energy grid to sustain Ghanaians.

He disclosed that the energy minister, Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh, was crying during the era of the former President, John Dramani Mahama, to release a timetable. However, currently, he is saying that he cannot provide a timetable for Ghanaians to schedule their daily activities, which is a mark of hypocrisy and arrogance.
