According to reports, an unstable power supply has affected Tema General Hospital, endangering the lives of helpless infants there.

“They just turned off the lights at Tema General Hospital right now… if we don’t get light in a few minutes, the probability that we might lose a lot of babies is high,” the nurse stated in the video that has drawn the attention of the Grammy-winning Ghanaian musician.

In the video, Sarkodie expresses his unhappiness over the state of affairs and blames it on the nation’s misguided objectives. He posted the video to his Instagram story. “The Effect of Having the Wrong Priorities. He wrote, “We pray for these helpless babies.”

Ghanaians have been dealing with a variable power supply for the past few months. As a result, a number of Ghanaians have requested that the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) release a load-shedding schedule, together with the Public Utility Regulatory Commission (PURC).

Nevertheless, the request has been turned down by Dr. Mathew Opoku Prempeh, the minister of energy. He claims that calling for a load-shedding schedule is the same as hoping for the worst for the nation.

Allow people who desire the schedule to bring it. Since the ECG has stated that it is not required, I am unaware of any schedule. “Why would someone just wish for the nation’s misfortune?” he inquired.

According to Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh, the administration is making concerted attempts to restore power. “I’ve told you that this is a problem that we are dedicated to solving, and it won’t be resolved right away. It’s a methodical approach,” he stressed.

While acknowledging the serious difficulty presented by the recent power outages in the nation, Dr. Opoku Prempeh expressed optimism that President Akufo-Addo’s administration is addressing the situation better than John Mahama’s previous administration.

As the Ghanaian Electricity Company (ECG) works to restore power, he asked the populace to exercise patience.
