The Women organizer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Otiko Afisa Djaba has said that women in the party would resort to sex strike to compel the government to find an antidote to the current energy crisis.

The sex strike by the women, she said, forms part of the alternatives available to Ghanaian women to register their displeasure at the ongoing epileptic supply of power in the country.

“We will continue to strike again and again until the government listens to our pleas and do something immediately to help bring down the rate at which power goes off and on in the country…if John Mahama would not hear us, we the women would even go on sex strike…,” she said on Oman fm’s Boiling Point Thursday.

Her party’s 2016 flagbearer, Nana Addo Dankwah Akufo-Addo led more than half a million Ghanaians on Wednesday to demonstrate on the streets of Accra against the government over the current energy crisis.

The party has also signaled their preparedness to embark on a similar demonstration in Ashanti Regional capital, Kumasi next week.

These demonstrations, Otiko said are not out of place promising a possible hunger strike before the sex strike.

According to her, President Mahama has not been responsible enough in tackling the crisis hence the demonstrations.

“Therefore if the government want us to stop demonstrating, then Mahama must stop travelling haphazardly and pin his buttocks down to solve the energy crisis…we are simply tired of him and his incompetence,” she fumed.

Adansi-Asokwa MP, Kobina Tahir Hammond who was also on the programme with her claimed per the explanation by the Power Minister to the Energy committee of parliament, the dumsor crisis was unlikely to end anytime.
