AFAG has criticized government for doing very little in solving the power crisis in the country.
Pressure group, Alliance for Accountable Governance (AFAG) has chastised President John Mahama and his government for not taking concrete measures to solve the power crisis facing the country.
According to a statement signed by the pressure group, it said “President Mahama and his government have slept for too long on this issue…Businesses are failing. Thousands of workers are being laid off and the economy is in dire challenges.”
AFAG's statement follows a planned vigil by some celebrities in order to put pressure on government to end the crisis.
“AFAG appreciates the gesture of the celebrities to organize a vigil to drive home the long trumpeted message that; ‘Mr. President fix the Dumsor.’
The statement added that after all the numerous failed promises on the part of President Mahama, there was no doubt that, the usually politically inactive Ghanaian celebrity have waded into the fray.”
AFAG further urged the Greater Accra Regional Police command not to put any impediment in the way of the organizers.
It added that, “AFAG would want to advice the organizers to put in place adequate security measures and precautions to protect sympathizers attending the vigil.”
