Association of Generator Sellers & the Union of Armed Robbers in Ghana to Stage ‘Dumsor Must Not End’ Protest in Accra
Though the Association of Generator Sellers and the Union of Armed Robbers are certain that Dumsor cannot be ended, and even if it will—not under John Dramani’s administration, the two groups are still worried about the future of their businesses.
According to a join press statement issued by the two bodies, as citizens of Ghana with businesses that only operate well when Dumsor lingers on, it is their prayer and hope and that Dumsor should remain as long as possible to enable them maximize profit.
And as such, the constant talk of ‘Dumsor Must End’ both online and offline is a targeted threat to the wellness of their businesses—and therefore will take to some prominent streets in Accra on 31st January, 2016 to register their dissatisfaction to the government.
The Association of Generator Sellers’ PRO-Ibrahim Mahama told ScrewLife.Com that, “as a business man, I need to make profit and after investing million of dollars to import generators into the country, it will be an infringement on my constitutional right for the government to alter the existing condition to the disadvantage of my flourishing business.”
He continued “without jobs in the country, many of these well built men have turned to armed robbery, putting their lives in danger each night to be able to feed their families. It’s dangerous enough for them today that we have dumsor. The annihilation of dumsor will expose them to a higher risk and possible kill their night operations.”
The two groups intend to petition the President to halt or slow down the government’s efforts to completely end load-shedding in Ghana; promising to vote for the NDC in the coming elections if the President adheres to their plea.
