The Minority in Parliament opposes the idea that privatizing the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) will solve the intermittent power outages. They attribute the recent outages to the government’s significant debts to Independent Power Producers, as stated by Dr. Rashid Pelpuo, a Member of the Mines and Energy Committee of Parliament, in an interview with Citi News. He believes the resurgence of ‘dumsor’ is due to the government’s mismanagement of the energy sector.

“It is not because we have not privatised [ECG] that is why the challenge is coming. It is because the government has mismanaged its responsibility toward the power agencies.“The government is failing to pay the private sector that is providing the light because the source of power is private sector-driven. The Independent Power Producers, government is unable to pay them their debts. ECG is unable to pay them. So I don’t think that the issue now is about ECG not being privatised.

“We have managed it from independence to now. The challenge is the irresponsibility of the government and the poor management of the governance system of power supply and power generation. So we have a problem, and the heart of the problem is in the governance of this country.”
