President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has given an assurance that government will reduce electricity tariffs in 2018 as it has been captured in the yet to be presented budget statement to be president by the Finance Minister, Ken Ofori Atta on Wednesday November 15, 2017.
The president, who was speaking at the Association of Ghanaian Industries Awards (AGI) dinner on Saturday night, was grateful for the work done by his appointees to ensure reliable power supply to Ghanaian citizens and businesses since his tenure commenced.
“I’m glad that businesses are no longer burdened by the erratic power supply that wrecked our nation in recent years. Dumsor, thank God, appears now to be the thing of an unlamented past. Another of the stars of the government, the Energy Minister, Boakye Agyarko, is to be commended for the sterling work he’s been doing so far on this matter,” the President said.
“Furthermore, the government is moving to set in motion the process for the review of electricity tariffs and in the budget to be read by the brilliant Minister of Finance, Ken Ofori-Atta on Wednesday, I’m sure we will hear some good news in this regard.”
