The Moderator of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana, Rev. Professor Emmanuel Martey has stated that prayers can solve the country’s current energy crisis.
According to him, if all religious bodies come together and pray, the crisis would be solved.
‘Are you a Christian, a Muslim or a traditionalist? Then pray and see what the miraculous God can do.
‘Do you believe in prayers, if yes then let the entire nation pray to witness what God can do…in three months,’ Rev Martey said in an interview on Adom FM Friday.
Rev. Prof. Martey has recently come under harsh criticisms by government officials for claiming that he can fix Ghana’s current energy crisis popularly called ‘dumsor’ in three months if he was the President of Ghana.
Ghana is currently reeling under severe power crisis. The country is shedding between 650 megawatts during peak periods and 450 megawatts during off peak periods.
The energy crisis has forced small-scale businesses and industries to lay-off workers and, in some instances shut down.
Authorities of the Ghana Grid Company Limited and the Volta River Authority have attributed the current crisis to low water levels in the Akosombo Dam and the lack of gas to power some of the country’s thermal plants.
The Electricity Company of Ghana has, however, assured that the current load shedding will improve soon.
According to them, some projects expected to be completed by the end of the month would improve the situation.
