All dumsor be dumsor, stop deceiving and disrespecting Ghanaians and release the timetable – Energy Minister told


Member of Parliament for Builsa South, Dr. Clement Apaak, has taken a swipe at Energy Minister Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh for maintaining that we are not experiencing dumsor.

The Energy Minister, Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempreh, last week told Ghanaians that the power outages, popularly known as ‘dumsor’, only happened under the former President John’s Mahama administration.

At the Government Assurances Committee meeting in Accra on Friday, May 3, Dr. Opoku Prempreh claimed we are experiencing ‘dum sie sie’ and not ‘dumsor’.


“I told you that when I got to the ministry, we’d gone past the era where we had 72 to 96 days of lights out and six hours of lights on. We are in the era of ‘dum siesie’, which is profoundly different from dumsor.”

“Dumsor as inflicted on Ghanaians has only happened as characterised by his excellency John Dramani Mahama’s governance. He is the only president on record to say that for four years that he reigned, for four years that he ruled, and for four years that he governed, there was ‘dum dum dum.’ If the non-partisan colleague says that now it is worse, then I don’t know where his realities lie,” he stated.

But reacting to this, Dr. Apaak described his comments as deceitful and disrespectful.

He asserted that what Ghanaians are experiencing is ‘dumsor’ and no matter how the Minister embellishes it, it will remain ‘dumsor’.

He went on to state that denying that we are facing ‘dumsor’ will also not resolve the problem.

He has therefore challenged the government to accept the crisis and resolve it like Mahama did before leaving power and stop denying the obvious.

He also stressed the need for the government to release the timetable for Ghanaians to plan their lives.

He said in a tweet on X that releasing the timetable will help people know when their lights will be off and plan for it.

“Deceitful, dishonest, and insincere administration. All dumsor be dumsor. Do you think denying we are experiencing dumsor will let dumsor go away? Give us a timetable and stop being disrespectful.”
