The President's statement comes as welcome news to many citizens who have endured years of intermittent power outages, which have had significant impacts on daily life and economic activities.

Addressing this year's national May Day celebrations in Accra, President Akufo-Addo attributed the resolution of the power crisis to the government's strategic interventions and investments in the energy sector. These efforts, according to the President, have significantly increased the country's electricity generation capacity, ensuring a more stable supply of power to homes and businesses.

The President also emphasized the government's commitment to implementing sustainable solutions to address the underlying challenges in the energy sector. He outlined initiatives aimed at diversifying the country's energy mix, promoting renewable energy sources, and improving energy efficiency and conservation practices.

These measures, he believes, will not only enhance the reliability of the power supply but also contribute to environmental sustainability and the country's overall development goals.


"As your president, I want to express my heartfelt gratitude to all Ghanaians for their patience and understanding of recent temporary challenges with the electricity supply experienced across the country. Over the period, the issues surrounding maintenance of transformers and gas supply have been successfully resolved resulting in the supply of electricity supply reliability."

"Indeed over the past few days, we have witnessed a stable supply of electricity across the country with no load-shedding reported anywhere yesterday. For the past seven years, we have worked tirelessly to keep the lights and I am confident that the unfortunate era of dumsor will not return," he said.

President Akufo-Addo's assurance of an end to the power crisis comes amid concerns raised by some stakeholders about the recent resurgence of intermittent power outages in parts of the country. The President acknowledged these concerns but reiterated his government's determination to tackle any emerging challenges swiftly and decisively.

In conclusion, the resolution of the power crisis is expected to have positive implications for various sectors of the economy, including manufacturing, agriculture, and services. A stable and reliable electricity supply is essential for driving economic growth, attracting investment, and improving living standards.
