Ghanaian President, John Mahama, during am Eid-el-fitr speech, blamed
irregular power cuts in his country on Nigeria due to the delays in the
delivery of crude oil from Nigeria to power thermal plants in Ghana, due
to the activities of Niger Delta Avengers, who have been blowing up oil
and gas pipelines in the Niger Delta.
The Niger Delta Avengers ,yesterday, blew up three Chevron manifolds at
Diogbolo, near Dibi, Warri Local Government Area of Delta State, using
controlled explosive devices.
“We have recently suffered some generational problems. I held a
stakeholders’ meeting with all those involved in the power sector.
Because of sabotage in Nigeria on the terminals, crude oil that we
ordered last month has not arrived; and so, it has created some
generational problem for us.”
However, he assured Ghanaians that things will return to normal very soon.
“We are taking steps every day to ensure that Ghana has security when it comes to power.”
