The board chairman of the Volta River Authority (VRA) Mr. Lee Ocran has lashed out at celebrities who planned to hold a vigil in protest of the power crisis that government cannot force the rains to fall to fill the Akosombo Dam.

According to him, until the rains begin nothing can be done about the worsening situation.

Speaking on Joy FM, he said, “We can’t conjure rains. There is nothing anybody in the world can do until the rains come,” he added.

His comment come at the back of the planned dumsor vigil by some celebrities in Ghana.

Lee Ocran was appointed by the late President John Evans Atta Mills as the minister of education and was reassigned as the ambassador to South Africa.

Meanwhile,it is now certain that the dumsor vigil will take place as planned on Saturday, May 16 ,2015. This is in spite of the reservations of the Ga Traditional Council that the vigil will contravene the ban on drumming and noise making.

The decision of the celebrities to hold the vigil to protest the unending power crisis has attracted mixed reaction.

While a section of society lauds the artistes for this move, some others including some activists of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) have attacked the personalities behind the event.
