"Dumsor is a thing of the past" - Akufo-Addo assures Ghanaians

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo delivered a reassuring message to Ghanaians, declaring that the recent challenges in power supply, commonly known as "dumsor," have been effectively resolved.

Addressing attendees at the annual May Day celebration in Accra, the President expressed his optimism and gratitude for the patience and understanding shown by the citizens during the trying times.

During his address, President Akufo-Addo acknowledged the recent difficulties faced by the nation with electricity supply, attributing them to issues surrounding transformers and gas supply.

However, he emphasized that through concerted efforts, these challenges have been successfully addressed, resulting in a significant improvement in power supply reliability across the country.

"I want to express my heartfelt gratitude to Ghanaians for their patience and understanding during recent temporary challenges with electricity supply across the country," the President stated.

He highlighted the successful resolution of issues related to transformers and gas supply, which have led to stable electricity supply in recent days, with no reported instances of load-shedding.

President Akufo-Addo reflected on the collective efforts made over the past seven years to ensure uninterrupted electricity supply in the nation.

He expressed confidence that the era of dumsor is now behind them and assured the citizens that they can expect reliable power supply moving forward.

"For the past seven years, we have worked tirelessly to keep the lights on, and I am confident that the unfortunate era of dumsor will not return," President Akufo-Addo affirmed.

The President's announcement comes as a relief to many Ghanaians who have endured periods of power outages in the past. With the assurance of stable electricity supply, businesses and households can now plan and operate with greater certainty, contributing to the overall development and prosperity of the nation.
