The Film Producers Association of Ghana (FIPAG) is set to stage a demonstration to register their displeasure about the current energy crisis facing the country.

Spokesperson, Michael Kweku Ola who confirmed this on Peace FM’s Entertainment Review show said the move was to put pressure on the John Mahama-led administration to solve the erratic supply of electricity which has lingered on for close to three years.

“The issue is getting out of hands. We are unable to work because of the power cuts and this has affected us so much. You know that from the scratch to the consumption of the movie, everything is dependent on electricity. In view of this, we intend hitting the streets of Kumasi on May 28, 2015 between 3pm and 7pm to protest against the worsening power fluctuation”, he said.

The demonstration dubbed, “Esum Aduru Yen” [darkness has befallen us], is expected to attract stakeholders of the creative arts industry. Mr. Ola explained that the demonstration should have been staged in April but they decided to hold on with it upon hearing that the government was importing power badges which will arrive in April, to help reduce the energy crisis. However, they realised the government again failed to deliver its promise, hence the demonstration.

The place of convergence, according to him, is the Cultural Centre.
