Ghana’s largest opposition party, the National Democratic Congress (NDC), has insisted that it ended the five years’ power crisis that hit the West African nation before exiting power in 2016.
According to the National Chairman of the party, Samuel Ofosu Ampofo, his party, led by former President John Mahama ended the power crisis before he left office. And this, he said is contrary to claims by the governing party that it ended the when it assumed office.
Ghanaians will go to the polls on December 7, this year, to elect President and Members of Parliament to steer the affairs of the country.
Ahead of the polls, both the two leading political parties, NPP and NDC, which have had the opportunity to govern the country, are working hard to convince and explain to the electorate, which party is more competent and better in managing the country.
And the issue of which party has handled the energy sector of the country better is among the issues currently being discussed in the Ghanaian media.
Speaking at the outdooring of the party’s 2020 Manifesto, the National Chairman of NDC, Samuel Ofosu Ampofo said when NDC was in government, under John Mahama, they invested in energy infrastructure and, thereby, succeeded in ending the power crisis which was christened ‘dumsor’ in the Ghanaian parlance.
“Today, if Ghanaians enjoy continuous electricity in their homes and businesses, it is due to the prudent extensive infrastructural investments undertaken by the last NDC administration led by President John Dramani Mahama, in the energy sector. The NDC has positively impacted the lives of the people of Ghana in every aspect of our lives,” he said
