I do not desire to leave behind a legacy of dumsor like John Mahama-Akufo-Addo.

Ghana's President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has reaffirmed his commitment to keeping the country's power supply stable.

He claimed that, in contrast to the previous administration presided over by John Dramani Mahama, his government is committed to always providing Ghanaians with access to energy.

In his speech before officially opening the recently constructed Accra Central Bulk Supply Point in the Greater Accra Region's Klottey Korle constituency on the Graphic Road, the president poked fun at the outgoing leader.

"The 161 kilovolt bulk supply point we are commissioning today fulfils the government's promise to keep the lights on. The president of Ghana, Nana Akufo-Addo, continued, "It also ensures a consistent, dependable, and regular supply of electricity for the busy and bustling business district and adjacent areas.

Regarding the project, President Akufo-Addo stated that the "bulk supply point is a gas insulated sub-station, which is Ghana Grid Company's (GRIDCo's) first sub-station with such technology".The substation, according to the president, "is a technology innovation applied in areas where spaces are significant and limited, where large capacity switch care and compact transformers can be installed."

The president listed three advantages of the Accra bulk supply point, among them the reduction of transmission and distribution losses, high reliability of the electrical supply, and high degree of worker safety.

The initiative will be supported by JICA, a Japanese development organisation, and is expected to cost about $40 million. 

Ghana's government and people expressed gratitude to the Kingdom of Japan's government and people for their noble gesture, according to President Akufo-Addo.
