Deputy Campaign Manager for the NPP, Mustapha Hamid has cautioned Ghanaians never to cast their votes for John Dramani Mahama of the NDC come December 7, 2020.

He further stressed that, a vote for Mahama is a vote to bring back the long years of erratic power supply popularly called ‘Dumsor’ on the good people of Ghana.

He disclosed this during a news conference in Accra on Monday, September 14th, 2020, a Deputy Campaign Manager of the NPP, Dr. Mustapha Hamid, said that under the John Mahama administration, Ghanaians slept in darkness for 1,188 hours.

“So soon people have forgotten that for three years we slept in darkness. For three years businesses in this country had collapsed because of “dumsor.” Indeed, “dumsor” cost this country billions of dollars and it was not for lack of capacity. It was simply because the economy was in such a poor state, that the NDC government could not raise the money required to keep the lights on.”

He added: “When we make the argument today, they tell us that they resolved dumsor before they exited. Here are the statistics for how many hours the lights were off in 2015, 2016 and 2017. In 2015, there were 868 hours, 44 minutes of power outages. In 2016, there were 320 hours, 27 minutes of power outages. In 2017, there were 41 hours and 7 minutes of power outages. So, they should tell us if resolving over 800 hours of power outages is tantamount to resolving dumsor”.
