The pressure group, United Voices for Change (UVC) has officially announced its intention to collaborate with Yvonne Nelson’s team in the forthcoming “Dumsor Must Stop” demonstration.

In a press statement released yesterday, UVC expressed its support for the actress's initiative and highlighted the urgency of addressing the ongoing power crisis.

“United Voices for Change is pleased to announce, to the general public, our prudent decision to collaborate with Yvonne Nelson’s ‘Dumsor Must Stop’ demonstration. As a group of Ghanaians deeply concerned about the welfare of our nation, we have witnessed firsthand the severe challenges posed by the current electricity crisis,” part of the statement read.

The group emphasised that the persistent power fluctuations, commonly known as “Dumsor,” have had a detrimental impact on the daily lives of ordinary Ghanaians and the overall national economy.

Sylvestin Ronald Antwi, the convener of UVC, stated that the organisation is participating in the demonstration to represent the millions of Ghanaians who are frustrated by the ongoing power crisis.

“Our participation is rooted in the belief that it is imperative to convey these frustrations directly to the government. We intend to emphasise the need for honesty and transparency regarding the electricity issue. It is crucial for the government to openly communicate the root causes of the power outages, and the steps being taken to address them,” he said.

Antwi argued that the citizens have entrusted their destiny to the government, and it is time for the government to fulfil its mandate by addressing the pressing concerns of the people.

“Ghanaians deserve to know why they are experiencing power outages, what is being done to resolve the issue, and when we can expect a return to stable electricity supply. Transparency will not only ease public frustration but also build trust between the government and the citizens,” he stated.

He indicates that UVC recognises Yvonne Nelson’s ‘Dumsor Must Stop’ demonstration as a crucial opportunity for Ghanaians to unite and voice their collective grievances.

“The planned demonstration transcends political affiliations, highlighting that power outages affect everyone, regardless of their political beliefs,” Antwi noted.
