Dumsor Demo For March 6

A  group by name, 'Concerned Ghanaians', is planning to stage a massive demonstration on independence Day, Friday march 6, 2015, against the irregular electricity supply across the length and breadth of the country.

The protest is scheduled to take place in the capital city, Accra.

Organisers of the event have started flying the agenda on social media, especially on the 'Ghana Speaks' page on Facebook where it has generated a lot of interest and endorsements.

Dubbed, 'Arise Ghana Youth for Your Country', organisers of the protest said they would be marching against what had come to be known as 'dumsor-dumsor' (irregular power supply), high fuel prices, corruption and the growing spate of unemployment in the country.

'For how long are we going to pretend having electricity four hours a day is normal? When are we going to start holding people accountable for their incompetence?' they asked rhetorically with a charge in tow, 'Ghana wake up.'

They therefore urged all Ghanaians to put aside their political colours and join in the march, since the energy crisis affects members of both the governing and opposition parties and that 'sitting on the fence is not an option'.

'Join the march. Let us show that we love our country.

Let us show that we care,' they posted on the Facebook page, while urging all patriotic citizens to stand up and be counted.

Checks by DAILY GUIDE  have established that organisers of the protest march would today send an official notice to the police as required by the Public Order Act.

It is however not certain if the police would allow such a protest march to take place on Independence Day.

Organisers of the march are said to be planning to replicate similar demonstrations in all 10 regional capitals across the country to drum home their demand for improved services and a reduction in fuel prices.

The country has been plunged into darkness in the past few years with no solution in sight.

Failed Promises President John Mahama had pledged ahead of the 2012 elections to banish dumsor by 2013. But three years down the line, the power crisis is still with the country, collapsing industries.

'The power crisis will be a thing of the past by the end of 2013,' Mr Mahama said at the IEA Presidential Debate in 2012.

And it appears now that no one is talking about the effect of the power crisis which has reached an alarming proportion, as Ghanaians now seem to have the misplaced belief that it is normal.

Students are running from one part of town to another depending on where they can get electricity to study and do their assignments.
