Central Regional Propaganda Secretary of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC), Allotey Jacobs has asked Ghanaians to repose confidence in the Mahama-led government in solving the energy crises in the country.
Allotey Jacobs, speaking to host of Peace FM‘s “Kokrokoo” Morning Show, Kwami Sefa-Kayi, was optimistic the government will soon resolve the energy challenges and ensure supply of electricity to the entire nation.
According to him, President John Dramani Mahama is working around the clock to secure oil in adequate quantities to augment the generation of electricity by the Volta River Authority in a bid to curb the current erratic power supply.
Allotey Jacobs, who hailed the government for not resting on its oars in finding lasting solutions to the energy situation, also found the incessant demands by Ghanaians ridiculous and emphasized that building the “energy capacity is not so easy as one might think. It’s like having 24 hours of electricity every day and all of sudden, you’re told that for three days; you’ll go off for 12 hours…” but the government is “managing it.”
He further stressed that “it is prudent management ensuring that the little power is distributed equally till we rectify the situation.”
