Kofi Asare, the Executive Director of the Africa Education Watch (EduWatch), has added his voice to demands for an electricity load-shedding timetable from the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG).

He has called on President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to instruct Samuel Dubik Mahama, the Managing Director of ECG, to release a timetable.

After that, the education advocate wants the president to fire the ECG boss for lying about the return of power outages.

"Dear Excellency Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo...Please, instruct the ECG MD you appointed to publish the timetable; and fire him after for lying to the public," read part of his post.

These calls come amid recent intermittent power outages, popularly known in Ghana as Dumsor, experienced in recent months.

Citizens have long demanded a timetable, but the energy ministry and ECG insist it is just some technical glitches, hence there will be no need for a timetable.

Meanwhile, the Public Utilities Regulatory Commission (PURC) says the excuse of technical glitches, particularly faulty transformers causing the outages, is untrue.
