The Power Distribution Services Ghana whose operation as the nation’s power supplier took effect on February 1, 2019, has explained in a statement that, the total blackout which hit the capital and the nation as a whole on Tuesday March 12, 2019, was as a result of some few  technical hitches.

The company  further said the  technical problems are being fixed and that the affected areas such as Odorkor, Darkuman,Lapaz, Anyaa, Lapaz,Sowutuom, Kasoa, Tema, Kwashieman, Awoshie and other parts of the Northern side of the country will have their power restored.

According to the PDS, the problem came from the power supply from the Mallam Bulk supply and the graphic Road being ‘curtailed”

“This has caused power outage within the Western and the Central parts of Accra. Immediately the situation is rectified, power supply will be restored to affected customers. The inconvenience is very much regretted,” the statement said.
