SDK rebukes Akufo-Addo for his ‘dumsor is over’ statement

Ghanaian comedian Sadik Sulley, better known as SDK, has openly criticized President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo for his remarks on the ongoing power outages facing the country.

SDK disputed President Akufo-Addo’s claim that the erratic power supply had been rectified, citing its own experiences of power outages following the president’s announcement.

He expressed frustration over the failure of the President and the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) to implement solutions to resolve energy problems, accusing them of misleading the public.

SDK, in its criticism of the President, called him “evil” and accused him of apathy to the hardships endured by Ghanaians due to power outages, amidst a chorus of grievances.

“How does it feel to lie @NAkufoAddo? They just cut off my power… evil man,” he posted on his X page, as reported by GhanaWeb.

SDK’s comments on ‘dumsor’ follow calls from the public for the government to address erratic power supply or provide a power distribution schedule.

Background

Earlier in his ‘Workers’ Day’ speech, President Akufo-Addo stated that the recent power outages have been resolved following the repair of transformers by ECG.

“The transformer maintenance issues have been resolved. We have seen steady power supply across the country, with no reports of load shedding till yesterday…

“I am sure that the regrettable period of ‘dumsor’ is behind us,” declared President Akufo-Addo.

In recent times, many people, including in political circles, have raised the alarm about the irregular electricity supply affecting certain areas.

The authorities and the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) have chosen not to publish a load shedding schedule, explaining that the power interruption is due to ongoing maintenance work.
