Former President John Mahama has attributed the recent power outages, known as ‘dumsor’, to the government’s failure to pay nearly $2 billion owed to energy suppliers for fuel. He criticized the government for not being transparent about the energy sector’s challenges.

Mahama stated that the accumulated debt has led to reduced fuel supply for electricity generation, prompting Ghana Grid Company Limited (GRIDCo) and Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) to announce a three-week load management schedule due to maintenance by a gas supplier in Nigeria.

He also expressed concern that the power crisis is worsening business conditions, potentially forcing businesses to relocate from Ghana. Mahama highlighted economic policies like high interest rates and taxes, which he believes are causing financial losses for Ghanaian businesses and contributing to economic instability.
