The National Chairman of the National Democratic Party (NDP), Dr. Josiah Aryeh doubts the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) government can solve the power crisis the country is experiencing currently.
Dr. Aryeh says the NDC government can do themselves good by pulling people from the opposition political parties in the country to brainstorm on how possible to solve the issue instead of ignoring the opposition parties.
Dr. Aryeh, who is a former scribe of the NDC, said on Accra-based Atinka fm that there should be a consensus on the power crisis.
He explained that elsewhere in the United Kingdom and Europe, power do not go off because they have nuclear energy.
“The problem is that, elsewhere, Japan, Germany, UK, USA for instance; you hardly ever have a day where there is power cut because their whole energy programme is nuclearized and ones you have nuclear energy you don’t have a problem; is only when you have hydro-electric power that is where we have these problems.
So ultimately, we have to look and see how best we can resolve it, so the best thing is to put people forward and try to resolve this problem,” Dr. Aryeh explained.
Asked if the NDP have confidence in the government in resolving the issue, Dr. Aryeh said “well, the least I say, the better. I will just look on and see everything unfold”.
