Ghanaian actress, Yvonne Nelson, who is currently leading the #DumsorMustStop campaign has revealed that she spends whopping amount to fuel her generators monthly due to the persistent dumsor (power crisis), Adomfmonline.com has learned.
“Everyone in Ghana is suffering because of this Dumsor issue and I have a generator and a day I spend about GHC50 on fuel, if you multiply that by 30 days that’s GHC1500. That amount can pay my electricity bills for a whole year. Even if I pay 100 Ghana a month for the electricity. School kids, patients at hospitals, business are suffering and I know you in the studio to some extent is feeling the heat too.
“I don’t see this as a tough time at all. I’m not really bothered about the comments. I’m the voice for the voiceless and I haven’t said anything bad. It’s something that’s happening. I didn’t mention any political party’s name. So if you feel offended by what I said then where is the democracy.
“I want to be that voice for the people so if any matter arises and I feel it’s worth speaking on, I will speak about it.
“I don’t have any advice for him, I’m sure where he has reached in his life he’s done well for himself and he should know what best for him.
“I don’t know him and he hasn’t called me to apologize. If a leader can say what he said then I’m very disappointed. If a leader can say this then it’s unbelievable.”
“What he said hasn’t gotten to me at all because I know what he said is not what I do. I am a citizen of Ghana and if something worries me I will speak about it.”
“I have nothing to say to him but I’m disappointed a leader can say that. People around me can’t believe he said that and it shocked many of them," she said.
