There’s no ‘Dumsor’ it’s ‘dum sie sie’ – NAPO reiterates

Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh has reaffirmed the government’s resolve to tackle the recurring issue of intermittent power outages, popularly known as ‘Dumsor’.

He emphasised that the current administration’s power challenges are significantly different from what the country experienced during the tenure of former President John Mahama, highlighting the progress made by the Akufo-Addo government in addressing the issue.

Dr Opoku Prempeh otherwise known as NAPO labelled the current ‘Dumsor’ facing the country as ‘dum sie sie’, literally meaning they turn the lights off and embark on maintenance works.

He dismissed assertions that the country is currently experiencing ‘dumsor’.

Speaking at his official unveiling in Kumasi on Tuesday, July 9, NAPO said, “It is not true that we’re experiencing ‘Dumsor’ in Ghana, our type of ‘Dumsor’ is ‘dum sie sie’, which is different from that of John Mahama’s prolonged ‘Dumsor’. We turn the lights off to embark on maintenance work.

“Four-year term of John Mahama, we were sleeping in darkness, we experienced ‘Dumsor’ during all those periods. Don’t pay attention to people who say we’re currently experiencing ‘Dumsor’”.
