Nationwide power outage hits Ghana again

Ghana has once again experienced a nationwide power outage which occurred on Wednesday evening lasting for about an hour and a half.

Accra residents in particular, who thought the power cut was just one of those intermittent cuts and was restricted to Accra alone became more alarmed and irked when it was evidently clear that people from afar were also suffering the same fate.

The cause of the outage was not immediately known as attempts by to ascertain the cause of the outage from the authorities responsible of production, distribution and transmission failed. A similar outage hit the country on December 7 which lasted close to about four hours.
