Droboman Network for Development demands swift intervention over erratic power supply

The Droboman Network for Development has observed with utmost displeasure the erratic nature of the electricity supply to the people of Drobo and its environs in recent times.

According to the association, “it is quite disheartening to note that almost no single day passes without a disruption in the electricity supply to either parts of or the whole of the Jaman South municipality in the last couple of months.

“We also find it pretty frustrating the seeming disrespect to the people and the wanton disregard for acceptable customer care practices. This is because these unbearable experiences mostly occur without even a word from the VRA-Nedco predating it or post-scripting same”, the association said in a statement copied to The Chronicle and signed by its Secretary, Godfred Kwasi Kwang and PRO Boabeng Clarence.

The association said it is equally concerned about the threatening health issues that may accompany this phenomenon, especially at this period of the year where rooms are warm and can result in the outbreak of CSM and other health issues.

The association further said that, it is equally worried about the devastating effects that this unreliable energy is having on the economic development of the area.

“We note with extreme frustration that this unreliable power supply to the people of Jaman South and its neighborhood is posing unimaginable threats to the small and medium scale businesses in the area”, the statement said.

“Operations of health facilities which require constant electricity supply is grievously affecting the storage of certain essential drugs and the performance of some crucial services”, the statement said.

“Sachet water producers, printing firms, cold store operators, corn and flour mill operators, filling stations, wood processing firms, welders, barbering and dress making shops and the likes in the Jaman South municipality are finding it extremely difficult to operate, as a result of this unannounced regular outages”, the statement added.

The association expressed worry that calls made to authorities on the matter have received little attention.

“It is also essential to point out that almost all calls made to authorities in the area before this release have received little or no attention”, the statement said.

The association, therefore, called on stakeholders to immediately find a lasting solution to the problem.

“Due to the foregoing observations, the Droboman Network For Development is urgently calling on all stakeholders, especially the Bono Regional VRA/Nedco branch to find lasting solutions to whatever problem there is, either technical or mechanical, before the patience of their teeming customers in and around the Jaman South municipality run out”, the statement concluded.
