The Minister of Energy, Dr. Mathew Opoku Prempeh, has urged the Ghana Grid Company, GRIDCo, to communicate clearly to the Ghanaians the power situation rather than lying to them.
Dr. Mathew Opoku Prempeh, said this yesterday, 6th April, 2021, during an official working tour with the Minister for Information, Hon. Kojo Oppong-Nkrumah, at GRIDCo in Tema.
According to information reaching Ghana Africa News, the working tour is part of the Minister’s familiarization tour of agencies under the Ministry of Energy.
As monitored by Ghana Africa News, Dr. Mathew Opoku Prempeh, during the tour interacted with leadership of GRIDCo on issues relating to the power transmission systems affecting the constant supply of electricity in Ghana.
His visit included GRIDCo’s System Control Centre as well as a field trip to observe and be briefed on projects being undertaken to upgrade our transmission lines.
During the meeting with management of GRIDCo, Dr. Opoku Prempeh stressed the need for GRIDCo to be proactive by communicating clearly to the general public on the power situation.
He also underscored the importance of unity of purpose among the management team.

To assure Ghanaians to have confidence in the power supply system of the country, Dr. Opoku Prempeh entreat all Ghanaians in the affected areas to be patient as the issues relating to the current power situation are being addressed and ultimately resolved. “Bear with the situation whilst GRIDCo continues to work hard to mitigate these transmission constraints”, he encouraged Ghanaians.
