The Load Shedding Committee has stated the load shedding is not over.
The load shedding committee revealed this in a statement signed by the Chief Executive Officer of GRIDCo and a member of the Load Shedding Committee, William Amuna.
This statement comes barely 24 hours after the Power Ministry issued a statement announcing an end to the four-year-old power crisis.
The statement also comes a few hours after the power minster, Dr Kwabena Donkor resigned.
The committee noted that steps are being taken to permanently end the power crisis.
They however note there still exists some residual targets to be attained before the absolute end to the load shedding.
The committee further stated there will be a meeting in early January to review the progress made as far as the power situation is concerned.
Below is the full statement:
LOAD SHEDDING NOT OVER YET DESPITE SIGNIFICANT GAINS MADE
The load shedding committee wishes to inform the general public that steps being taken to permanently end the management of the power gap have produced significant gains.
This notwithstanding, we wish to state that there still exists residual milestones to be attained to end the load shedding as it relates to electricity supply. These are being addressed in earnest.
The committee will meet early in January, 2016 to further review the progress made. Ghanaians and industry will be apprised of the outcome of the meeting.
We wish to express our deepest appreciation to all stake holders for cooperating with the committee.
Signed: Wikliam Amuna, CEO GRIDCo.
