Some unhappy residents of Sahara in Dansoman, Accra calling itself, Concerned Citizens of Sahara (CCS), have intended to demonstrate against the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) over the unreasonable erratic power supply in the area.
The demonstration, according to the concerned residents has become necessary, because there has been no electricity supply for five consecutive days.
The group blamed the county’s power supplying company for being biased and treating them unfairly.
In a statement released by the Concerned Citizens of Sahara on Wednesday, June 30, signed by its Public Relations Officer, Kofi Otuo Bekoe, it said they have planned to hit the streets on Thursday to protest against the Electricity Company of Ghana for sleeping on their job and the government for failing to address their plight despite calls on the Municipal Chief Executive Officer and the Member of Parliament for the area.
Though there’s an ongoing load shedding exercise in parts of Accra, the group stated in its statement that blackout experienced in Sahara, Dansoman has nothing to do with the exercise insisting they’re being neglected.
Despite the public gathering restrictions that prohibit demonstration and any other social event, the Citizens of Sahara insist it will register its grievances to the authorities tomorrow.
Persons affected by the power outages have also been urged to join the protest in order to achieve maximum success.
The statement further said all covid-19 safety protocols will be observed to prevent the spread of the virus that has caused a global scourge and negatively impacted the world’s economy.
Little is known if they have notified the Ghana Police Service about the intended protest.
