    Watch the moment the lights went out on Ursula Owusu-Ekuful while addressing the media

    Despite the government’s denial that the country is facing a power crisis, Ghanaians are still experiencing power outages, popularly known as ‘Dumsor.’

    These outages are affecting not just ordinary residents but also government activities.

    Today, May 30, 2024, the Ministry of Information was not spared.

    The lights went out while the Minister for Communication, Ursula Owusu, was addressing the media during a press briefing on the ‘5G roll-out.’

    The session continued after power was restored.

    The government announced a partnership with seven industry leaders to develop a new shared infrastructure aimed at delivering affordable 5G mobile broadband services across Ghana.

    The seven partners include Ascend Digital, K-NET, Radisys, Nokia, Tech Mahindra, and two telecommunications companies – AT Ghana and Telecel Ghana.

    The government said these partners have formed the Next-Gen Infrastructure Company (NGIC), which has been awarded a 5G license. NGIC is expected to launch 5G services across Ghana within the next six months, with plans for further expansion into other parts of Africa.
