Edward Bawa Criticizes Energy Minister NAPO Over Dumsor Timetable Remark

A member of the Mines and Energy Committee in Parliament, Edward Bawa, has expressed disappointment in Energy Minister Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh’s recent comments regarding the need for a load-shedding timetable by the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG).

Dr. Prempeh, speaking at the inauguration of the NPP campaign team in the Ashanti Region, challenged those advocating for a load-shedding timetable to create their own proposed schedules. He questioned the need for such a timetable when the ECG has stated that there is no plan for load shedding in place.

In response, Bawa, the MP for Bongo, in an interview with Umaru Sanda Amadu on Eyewitness News, described the Energy Minister’s comments as unfortunate, indicating that they demonstrate the government’s lack of concern for Ghanaians.

Bawa suggested that Dr. Prempeh’s remarks revealed arrogance and disrespect towards Ghanaians who have contributed to his current position.

“First and foremost, let me state that the comment by Honourable Matthew Opoku Prempeh is very unfortunate. It is a sign that we have a group of people who simply cannot care about how people feel. You can feel arrogance in his comments. You can feel disrespect for even the people who made you, who by their grace made you who you are in terms of being a minister of state,” Bawa stated.

The Energy Minister’s comments have sparked debate and criticism, with many calling for a more empathetic and understanding approach to the challenges facing the energy sector in Ghana.
