Energy Ministry replies Minority: There is no nationwide load shedding

The energy ministry says the ongoing scheduled load shedding in parts of the country has nothing to do with lack of funds

The government has assured it has no intention of embarking on a nationwide load shedding as being speculated by the Minority caucus in Parliament, a statement from the energy ministry said.

It has also dismissed claims that it is embarking on a nationwide load shedding due to lack of money to fund the operations of players in the energy sector.

The Minority ranking member on Energy and Mines in Parliament, John Abu Jinapor on Wednesday attributed the current power outages in parts of the country to “financial challenges”.

“Government must ensure that energy sector SOEs publish details of their financial statements including details and aging of their indebtedness as well as debts owed to them on time,” he said.

However, the energy ministry has issued a statement to set the record straight on the issues raised by the minority on Wednesday.

It says despite the recent power outages, systematic plans have been instituted by government and partners like the Millennium Challenge Account to fix the challenge in the energy sector.
