Dumsor in parliament as MPs stuck in elevator

Frantic efforts are being made by firemen in parliament to rescue people stuck in elevators as a result of the disconnection by Electricity Company of Ghana ( ECG) over 23 million cedis debt.

The Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) disconnected power supply to Parliament and Job 600, the office complex of the Members of Parliament, on Thursday, February 29, 2024, due to a GHc23 million debt. Lawmakers and staff using the elevator at the time got stuck as a result of the power cut.

This disconnection is part of the ongoing “Operation Zero Balance” initiative by the ECG task force to recover outstanding debts. The Minority in Parliament is demanding a load shedding schedule from the ECG to help people plan their activities in the midst of the ongoing power crisis. They argue that the government’s denial of the existence of load shedding, known as ‘Dumsor’, is not sufficient. They are calling for transparency and planning to help citizens navigate the challenges posed by the energy crisis.

There is a good reason why you should support the African Editors. Not everyone can afford to pay for news right now. That is why we keep our journalism open for everyone to read, including in Ghana. If this is you, please continue to read for free. But if you are able to, then there are three good reasons to support us today.

1. Our quality, journalism is a scrutinising force at a time when the rich and powerful are getting away with more and more.

2. We are independent and have no billionaire owner pulling the strings, so your money directly powers our reporting.

3. It doesn’t cost much, and takes less time than it took to read this message.
