Three Ghanaian celebrities – Yvonne Nelson, Sarkodie and Lydia Forson - are championing the May 16 vigil to put pressure on the John Mahama-led administration to solve the erratic supply of electricity which has lingered on for close to three years.
In a Facebook post, Joyce Dzidzor described these celebrities as attention seekers. According to her, their inability to proffer solutions to the power crisis is a justification of her claims.
Read her post unedited: “It's a pity to see Yvonne Nelson, Sarkodie ETC who Knows nothing about Ghana's history as far as energy is concerned speak as if our president doesn't know his left and right. Dumsor started years ago under President John Agyekum Kuffour's administration when Ghana went through a painful erratic power supply before Mahama came to power. Under former president kufour',s administration, there was Dumsor but he also did his best but yet the situation wasn't properly rectified which is giving Ghanaians more challenging times now.
In my opinion, I don't think any president will enjoy being criticized for this long if he knows or have an immediate solution to a particular challenge. No president is perfect but I think President Mahama is human and knows good from bad. Enough is enough. Ghanaians should show a little respect to our leaders and stop insulting them , in the name of Freedom of speech. What at all will president mahama benefit in deliberately seeing Ghanaians to suffer with dumsor for this long? I think Yvonne Nelson and co are just looking for unnecessary attention from Ghanaians.
Because as it stands now the so call celebrities haven?t come out with any suggestion on how this ?Dumsor? can be solved. We should all support President Mahama has he promise to solve dumsor permanently Yes we all want? DUMSOR TO STOP? But not just stop for our generation but stop forever, so lets allow the president to work for us JM NUMBER 2 JOYCE MENSAH”
The planned #dumsormuststop vigil has received mixed reactions from a section of the public particularly, people in the creative arts industry. While some believe it is spot on, others are of the opinion that it is needless.
