“They informed me that the progress of the substation is such that in the month of May, there will be systematic power outages, so, we have invited both ECG and GRIDCo and in the light of that, let us sit and plan and communicate with the people who will be affected way before it happens”, he said.

Dr. Prempeh made this known at a forum in Accra on Thursday, 8 April 2021.
