SONA 2024: We’ve avoided dumsor even under economic challenges, Akufo-Addo jabs Mahama

Delivering the State of the Nation Address in Parliament on Tuesday (27 February), Akufo-Addo said: “Mr Speaker, between 2012 and early 2017, there was nothing more demoralising than the phenomenon we called dumsor”

President Akufo-Addo has said his government has so far managed the energy sector with discipline to avoid power rationing (also known as “dumsor”) even under economically challenging circumstances.

“We have managed the energy sector with discipline and expertise to avoid a repetition of the hardships inflicted on Ghanaians some years ago,” Akufo-Addo said, delivering the State of the Nation Address in Parliament on Tuesday (27 February).

“Mr Speaker, between 2012 and early 2017, there was nothing more demoralising than the phenomenon we called dumsor. It was symptomatic of a dysfunctional system and it caused widespread depression amongst businesses and households.”

Akufo-Addo added: “After that experience, my government was determined that dumsor would not be inflicted upon Ghana and Ghanaians under an NPP government and I am glad to be able to say, so far so good.

“We have managed to keep the lights on these last seven years, even in the midst of a financial crisis.”
