There is a widespread power outage in parts of Accra.
The lights went off around 7 pm in some affected areas on Tuesday, March 17, 2020.
It is, however, unclear the reason for today’s power cut in parts of the capital.
The country has been experiencing widespread power cuts for about a week now with intermittent power outages almost every other night.
Earlier this week, the Ghana Grid Company Limited (GRIDCo) blamed the blackouts on a performance test on a new regulating and metering gas station in Tema.
Some affected residents around the Lapaz New Market described the current power situation as ‘shocking and frustrating’.
Some of the residents also called on Government to as a matter of urgency release a load-shedding time-table to help them effectively plan and organize their lives.
