Speaking on Uniiq FM, the President said he continuously reminds the power minister of his promise to vacate his post if the crisis does not end by December 2015.
He also emphasized that the days of cheap hydropower are over, and Government is putting in more than 1000MW emergency power and that total supply will be 1500MW.
“Hydropower will now become a backup power, thermal will be the main source,” Mahama affirmed.
As part of the solutions to banishing ‘Dumsor’, President Mahama called for the need to install more prepaid meters.
"We need to put in more prepaid meters, people must stop stealing power because that makes power expensive".
He, therefore, said the Power Minister is on track and together with him they will fix the power situation.
