Atta Akyea reveals: Akufo-Addo directs halt of electricity export amid power disruptions. Get the latest insights on this significant development.

President Akufo-Addo has instructed to reduce the export of electricity to neighboring countries in light of the persistent intermittent power outages, commonly referred to as ‘dumsor.’

Chairman of the Energy Committee of Parliament, Samuel Atta Akyea, disclosed this information during an appearance on JoyNews’ PM Express on Tuesday.

During the program, Mr. Atta Akyea highlighted that the directive reflects the President’s emphasis on meeting domestic energy needs over pursuing financial gains from electricity exports.

He underscored the President’s commitment to addressing the prevailing instability in the country’s power supply.

“The President has a sense of the national need rather than making profits abroad,” he stated.

Mr Atta Akyea, who doubles as MP for Akim Abuakwa South stressed the need for redirecting electricity generated for export back into the national grid to alleviate the ongoing power crisis.

Ghana has been grappling with erratic electricity supply in recent times, leading to disruptions in various sectors and inconveniences for consumers.

Meanwhile, the country exports power to neighbouring countries including Togo, Benin and Burkina Faso, thus the decision to curtail electricity exports is a preliminary step by the government to mitigate the impact of the power crisis on the nation’s economy and the populace.

Per Mr Atta Akyea’s disclosure, the directive is expected to be implemented swiftly, with immediate measures to reroute electricity generated for export back into the national grid.

“We cannot afford to say “Okay, let’s make good money abroad and let the national economy suffer.” So in the meantime, whatever is going outside would be curtailed and fed on the national grid so that we have electricity,” he told host Evans Mensah.
