The Ranking Member of Mines and Energy Committee of Parliament, John Jinapor says the ruling government (NPP) must interferring in the Energy sector and tell Ghanaians about the challenges of the power sector.

John Abdulai Jinapor born is a Ghanaian politician and a former Minister of State of Ghana. He is a member of the National Democratic Congress of Ghana and a Member of Parliament representing the Yapei-Kusawgu constituency.

On one of his communications dated April 13, Mr Jinapor was emphatic that the power outage has little to do with technical upgrades as purported by the Energy Minister, Dr Matthew Opoku Prempeh.

Speaking again on Eyewitness News, the former deputy Minister of Energy and Petroleum (John Jinapor) said Ghanaians must be made fully aware of the situation and be assured of the government’s efforts to address them.

“Somebody is not telling us the truth and in this difficult moment, when people are struggling, there ought to be clarity and certainty. If indeed power is not adequate in terms of the transmission line, tell the people of Ghana and assure us of what you are doing,” he said.

Since the beginning of the year, many parts of Ghana have seen power supply challenges including long periods of outage, low current and intermittent outages.

Some have reported that they have lost electrical appliances due to the development. John Jinapor, says the current issues have a lot to do with financial challenges being faced by power transmitters, GRIDCo.

He said that problem must be dealt with urgently as the power situation in the country continues to worsen.
