Former president of the Ghana Actors Guild, Nii Odoi Mensah has taken a swipe at celebrities who have planned a vigil to protest against the worsening power crisis in the country come May 16.

According to him, the celebrities should stop complaining because president Mahama did not create the current energy crisis. He added if the aggrieved celebrities have any idea on how to remedy the situation, they should voice it than organising a vigil that will amount to nothing.

“In a society where the young will not seek advice from the elderly, then you know we have a problem…Seriously my sister do you think the present government is happy with the situation in which we are? Or, when his Excellency the president came into power, do you think he went to Akosombo to [shut] the dam off, so that we stay in darkness? Or can’t we understand that there is a problem and somebody must fix it and that we all have to help that person to fix it? If you go on a vigil, what have you done to solve the problem?” he wondered.

Nii Odoi Mensah believes President Mahama is making frantic efforts to bring Ghana back to full illumination so Ghanaians should exercise patience.

“Ghanaians must learn to be patient in life. You don’t get things on a silver platter. No condition is permanent. The man said he is trying his best to solve the problem, let’s help him solve it...My sister go to Nigeria. Years and they are still in darkness. Ghana has only been in this for one year. If Ghana is fifty something years and for that period we’ve had electricity except for one year, why should we be complaining as much?”

“All the past governments! They didn’t have vision. So let’s not only blame it on the current government, I mean we don’t have to politicise everything. We must be realistic in all we do. Let’s stop the blame game and help the man to solve it.”, he told Starr Entertainment.

Ghanaian celebrities: Yvonne Nelson, Sarkodie and Lydia Forson have notified the Greater Accra regional police commander of their intention to lead a protest vigil against the worsening power crisis in Ghana. The group of protestors will converge at the University of Ghana Stadium grounds at 4pm and proceed peacefully to the Green Park opposite the Villagio at the Tettey Quashie Interchange.
