The Ashanti Regional Minister, Hon. Simon Osei Mensah, has voiced his frustration over the persistent power outages in the Ashanti Region and threatened to stage a demonstration against the Ghana Grid Company (GRIDCo) and the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG).

Hon. Mensah emphasized that the power outages, which began in 2017, have greatly inconvenienced residents and businesses in the region. He called on GRIDCo and ECG to address the issue urgently and ensure fair distribution of electricity.

He said the people of the Ashanti Region have suffered for far too long due to these intermittent power outages.

Hon. Mensah stated. “GRIDCo and ECG must provide him with a detailed breakdown of the challenges causing the outages, or else he will have no choice but to take to the streets in protest.

The Minister’s threat comes amidst growing frustration among residents over the lack of reliable electricity supply in the region.
