King of Asante Otumfuo Osei Tutu II has expressed worry over the intermittent power cuts in the Ashanti Region in recent times.
According to him, it has become a worrying feature of their daily lives in Kumasi that needs to be addressed with all the urgency needed.
He complains that his electrical appliances have been destroyed as a result of the power cuts.
Otumfuo was speaking when a delegation from the Energy Ministry visited his palace to plead over the recent power cuts and provide him with the assurance that the problems will be fixed in the shortest possible time.
The Ashantehene speaking on the day recalled how the Energy Minister Dr Mathew Opoku Prempeh was greeted by the phenomenon of “Dumsor” one day when he paid him a visit at the Palace and they were going to eat at his hall.
“One day he came to the palace and was served with his food, he was about it eat when the lights went off then I asked him what the issue it to warrant such power cuts in the region. He pleaded with me and said he was going to get it fixed,” he said.
“It is my prayer that you will work to address this matter because if the country will develop it will depend on the energy. The frequent power outages have destroyed all my appliances,” he told the Energy Minister.
