Bring back my light – Lydia Forson reacts to Dumsor



Lydia Forson

, a well-known actress and businesswoman, has expressed her worry about the ongoing blackouts, or “Dumsor,” that are occurring across the nation.

This occurs at the same time that some Accra neighborhoods began to experience sporadic power supply on Tuesday, January 9, 2024, with comparable issues continuing for months in other areas.

warned Ghanaians not to minimize the gravity of the situation in a post on Platform X on Thursday, January 10, underlining that the current power outages are exactly like those that occurred in 2015.

Lydia Forson declared categorically,“If I write about #dumsor, I don't want any of you dimwits under my tweets giving analysis on why this is different from 2015! The lights are off, and I want them on; that's all I care about.”


The government's response to the power outages has also drawn criticism from Deputy Minority Leader Emmanuel Armah-Kofi Buah, who called the government's silence on the subject “deafening.”

The Ellembelle MP expressed his displeasure and requested that the Ghana Grid Company (GRIDCo) provide a load-shedding schedule so that businesses and households could make plans.

Buah emphasized that the lack of a set timetable makes things more difficult for impacted businesses and households.

He underlined the necessity of openness and communication from the government, saying, “The lack of transparency and communication regarding the power outage schedule only adds to the frustration and inconvenience experienced by the affected population.”

He went on to say that even at their worst, the current power outages do not approach the 500 megawatt threshold that was reached during earlier “Dumsor” episodes. Nevertheless, he berated the media linked to the ruling NPP for their seeming inaction on the issue, saying, “Their loud silence on the current situation is deafening.”

More power outages in Ghana are probably in store in the next few days, according to Nana Amoasi VII, Executive Director of the Institute for Energy Security (IES). He noted that although the power plants are prepared for operation, the primary obstacle is the unavailability of natural gas, which is an essential fuel for the plants' proper operation.
