There is a total blackout in most parts of the country as Ghanaians fear that Dumsor has returned.

Places including Lapaz, Abeka, Sowutum, Kasoa, Tema, Kwashieman, Odorkor, Awoshie and parts of northern Ghana are currently without light.

With regards to northern Ghana, the Northern Electricity Distribution Company (NEDCO) attributed the situation to a “system failure.”

This blackout comes just weeks after Power Distribution Services (PDS) took over the  Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG).

PSD assured that they would improve the services of their predecessors but things seem to be going the negative way for them.
Explaining the situation in Accra, PDS in a statement, indicated that the power outage is as a result of technical challenges.

The company promised to address the challenges with immediate effect.

“The Power Distribution Services Ghana (PDS), wishes to inform the general public especially our cherished customers that, due to technical challenges upstream, power supply to our Mallam Bulk Supply Point and Graphic Road has been curtailed. This has caused power outage within the Western and the Central parts of Accra. Immediately the situation is rectified, power supply will be restored to affected customers. The inconvenience is very much regretted.” Ghana News
