The Minority Caucus in Parliament has asserted that the sporadic power outages, commonly known as ‘dumsor,’ were effectively addressed by former President John Dramani Mahama before the end of his term.

According to the Caucus, Mahama’s administration exited with a surplus power capacity, leaving the country with approximately 83 percent of its generation capacity. This assertion was made in response to comments by Energy Minister Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh, who solely attributed the dumsor phenomenon to the Mahama government, despite its recurrence during the Akufo-Addo administration.

John Oti Bless, the Ranking Member on the Government Assurances Committee, argued that Mr. Mahama is the only Ghanaian president to have successfully tackled challenges in the power sector.

He stated, “Dumsor has been a longstanding issue. All past heads of state or presidents in the history of this country have faced it. Even during President Kufuor’s tenure, they had to import generators from abroad under Kofi Addah. But President John Mahama was courageous, humble, and took responsibility, pledging to resolve it.

And he did. Before he left office, we had excess capacity, with our generation reaching about 83 percent. So let’s acknowledge that President Mahama is the only president in the country’s history to have resolved dumsor.”
