Speaking on the Citi Breakfast Show, Dr Nduom stated that the energy crisis is aggravated by unrealistic promises from government.

According to him, despite the numerous efforts by the government to resolve the situation, assurance from President John Mahama that his administration will permanently solve the recurring power crisis by the end of 2015 is unrealistic.

“We’ve had the power crisis not because we don’t know what should be done. We’ve had good plans from Ato Ahwoi days, to Kan Dapaah days and so on and so forth… but you see, when government knows that there’s a problem but then they try to camouflage it because of politics and to say that I will solve it today and then problem then keeps perpetuating itself,” he said.

“We have a problem and it will not be solved before the end of four years. We have another four years to go. If we start doing the right things today, it will take us four years to solve this problem. So, if somebody tells me that this power problem will be solved by the end of this year, I know they are not serious. I have been hoping that President Mahama will come and be straight with us and tell us that we have a really bad problem in this country and it will take some time to resolve it, so, all of us let’s work together to resolve it and while we resolve it we find a way to alleviate it,” Dr Nduom added.

Sector minister Dr Kwabena Donkor has said that he will resign if he is unable to resolve the energy crisis by December 2015.

President Mahama, since 2012 has made several promises of an end to the crisis, but each deadline passed while the situation got worse. Many businesses have laid off workers because of high production cost as they resort to the use of generators.
