Load Shedding Extended For Two More Weeks

The Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) has extended the load management schedule for two more weeks.

According to the citifmonline.com, the Head of Public Affairs at the ECG, Mr William Boateng said the new schedule will be formally announced on Tuesday.

He said although the load shedding exercise is being extended for an extra two weeks, “we have seen some marginal improvement because during the day like this for the past two weeks, we have not been shedding the load.”

The load management, which began three weeks ago, is because of the shortage of gas supply from Nigeria.

President John Dramani Mahama subsequently sent the Energy Minister, Emmanuel Kofi Buah to negotiate with the authorities of the West African Gas Pipeline Company (WAPCo) to increase gas supply to Ghana.
