Ghana’s power provider, Power Distribution Services (PDS) has absolved itself from blame for power outages currently being experienced in most parts of the country Saturday afternoon (April 20).
The company said the outage is due to challenges at Ghana Grid Company (GRIDCo).
In a statement, PDS said operational areas in the Southern Zone of the country were affected by the outage.
Residents in some parts of Accra, Sunyani, Wa, Kumasi, the Central and Northern Regions are complaining about the unannounced power outage.
PDS said the problem was due to “unstable power supply from GRIDCo.”
“The intermittent outages being experienced this afternoon, Saturday 20th April, 2019 throught out PDS operational areas (Southern Zone of Ghana) is due to unstable power supply from GRIDCo”, the statement said.
Meanwhile, PDS has assured that power supply will be restored as soon as the situation is normalized.
“Customers should please note that immediately GRIDCo rectifies the situation, power supply will be restored to the affected areas.”
In the past months, there have been series of challenges that have resulted in power cuts in several areas across the country.
Electricity supply has been inconsistent in most parts of the country in recent times due to different challenges including recent rainstorms.
