The Ministry of Energy has responded to claims made by the Adolescence at a press conference held in Parliament on Wednesday, April 28.

Led by Ranking Member on the Mines and Energy Committee John Jinapor, who’s a former Deputy Minister of Power, the Adolescence charged the government of inconsistency in timelines to end the power breaking point.

“ As if that wasn’t enough, the ECG, Ghana Grid Company Limited (GRIDCo GRIDCo) and theHon. Minster have been delivering clashing timelines on when this devitalizing power breaking point will be resolved, ” the Member of Parliament for Yapei-Kusawgu Constituency told correspondents.

“ What’s yea more disturbing is despite attestation from GRIDCo a couple of weeks ago that the country will continue to endure these power outages into the foreseeable future for which reason they promised to publish a burden administration schedule, the anticipated schedule has since been put on hold due to political pressure from the administrant. ”

But in its response on Thursday, April 29, the Energy Ministry rejected this outright.

“ The Ministry rejects the Adolescence in Parliament ’s assertion that different timelines have been given from different outfits in respect of the schedule of factory.

“ It’s false, ” it stressed.

It indicated that by the end of 2021 all the arrangements – Pokuase Bulk Supply Point, Kasoa Bulk Supply Point and Tema to Achimota Line Rehabilitation – would have come to accomplishment “ and the power situation would have been resolved ”.

“ These different conclusion dates for the chromatic designs can not by any stretch of the imagination be demonstrated to mean that different and antipodean dates have been issued on when the power situation would be resolved. ”

The Ministry assured Ghanaians that President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo ’s vision for the powersub-sector is safe, reliable and affordable power “ to bring relief to Ghanaians and also to serve as a solid base for industrialised husbandry ”.

“ The Ministry of Energy, in going of this vision, is working hard to bring it into achievement and remains centered on delivering this important authorization. ”
