Electricity has no party colours: we need timetable -Atta-Akyea

Samuel Atta Akyea, Chairperson of Parliament’s Committee on Mines and Energy, has joined the chorus of voices calling for the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) to release a load-shedding timetable during the current power crisis.

The Abuakwa South MP expressed disappointment in Minister for Energy, Matthew Opoku Prempeh, for dismissing the need for a timetable and politicising the issue. Atta Akyea emphasized that electricity consumption is not limited by political affiliations and that a timetable would help people plan their activities around the power outages. He insisted that a timetable is necessary until the situation stabilizes.

Meanwhile, Energy Minister Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh maintains that there is no rolling power crisis and questioned the need for a timetable. His remarks have received criticism for being indifferent to the struggles of Ghanaians affected by the sporadic power cuts.


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.

Help power the African Editors' journalism for the years to come, whether with a small sum or a larger one. If you can, please support us on a monthly basis from just 1 Ghana Cedi through mobile money number: 0599896099/ +23359989609 and you can be rest assured that you’re making a big impact every single month in support of open, independent journalism. Thank you.
