A National Democratic Congress Deputy General Secretary Koku Anyidoho has revealed that a staunch supporter of the governing party threatened to burn the party’s paraphernalia when her freezer got destroyed as a result of the insane power outages.
Daavi had had enough of the outages and when the motor in her deep freezer got destroyed on account of yet another outage she hurriedly went into the room brought out her paraphernalia and attempted to torch them.
Her ice water business had collapsed and the only condition under which she would not burn her paraphernalia is for her co-tenant, a barber who is supposedly another NDC supporter to repair the deep freezer.
According to Koku Anyidoho, the barber who he named only as Emma, run to him, (Koku) “draped in hysteria” pleading for financial support to go and repair the deep freezer for Daavi so she would not burn the party’s flags and paraphernalia.
Anyidoho did not say whether or not he offered that support but one thing he was emphatic about is that the dumsor alone could lead to the party’s defeat in 2016 if the crisis is not solved.
The country has endured three years of power paralysis which has left many businesses shattered, jobs lost and even deaths recorded.
Koku Anyidoho told Joy FM’s Super Morning Show host Kojo Yankson that Mahama is not sleeping on the dumsor matter.
He said he has granted the NPP the right to demonstrate but the impression should not be created that nothing is being done about the power situation.
“Mahama is not sleeping on this. Nobody is sleeping on this matter. If we tar all the roads in Ghana, if we build all the schools in Ghana, if we provide water, 72  hours a day and it is running all over the place and we don’t manage this power crisis, 2016 will be a tall hurdle for us to jump over,” he confessed.
