Minister for Energy, Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh has said that the 8-day dumsor schedule as announced by the Electricity Company of Ghana ends today.
Speaking at a press conference, Mr Prempeh said he is unsure whether there would be an extension of the load shedding or not.
“There has been a dumsor timetable for those in Accra who are served by the Pokuase substation, and ECG published a timetable for that and it ends today. I cannot stand here and give you a yes or no answer, but we are sure that for whatever they needed to do and for whatever reason they came with the timetable, it ends today.”
Last week, the Electricity Company of Ghana rolled out an eight-day power outage schedule for some parts of the national capital to enable it undertake maintenance works on some GRIDCO facilities.
The power interruptions started on Monday, May 10, 2021.
