We apologise for power cuts – Government

Government has apologised to Ghanaians for the recent erratic power cuts in several parts of the country.

The apology follows a frustrating weekend of power outages in the country.

The recent bout of challenges in electricity supply comes barely two weeks after the Energy Minister, John Peter Amewu assured that the situation will stabilize in five days.

Addressing a news conference this morning, the deputy Energy Minister, William Owuraku Aidoo said enough measures have been put in place to deal with the situation.

He noted that there was enough fuel, contrary that government doesn’t have money and was mismanaging the energy sector.

The minister added that government has taken the necessary steps to reduce the disruption of power to the country to the barest minimum.

Meanwhile, the regulator, the Public Utility and Regulatory Commission says it has directed investigation into the cause of the erratic power supply.

According to the commission, it will sanction anyone found culpable after investigations are concluded.
