Presently, Ghana is experiencing persistent power outage like her West African neighbor, Nigeria, and Ghanaian citizens are not happy about the development.
Yvonne Nelson, a Ghanaian movie star, has added her voice to tackle what they call ‘dumsor’ in that country. ‘Dumsor’ is a term used in Ghana to describe epileptic power supply.
The actress has now started a social media campaign tagged #dumsormuststop and she has encouraged her fellow citizens to join her in pressuring the government to solve the issue.
The leggy screen diva further said a vigil would be held later in the month over the issue.

“The #dumsormuststop vigil is on Saturday 16th May! Join me and other citizens of GHANA. Strictly non-partisan. This is simply a discharge of your civic responsibility to God and country.
“This is for the many people who have lost their jobs because of ‘dumsor’. This is for the many people who have lost their lives because of ‘dumsor’. This is for the school children who have to study with lanterns and torches to write exams.
“This is for the sick people at the hospitals who have to endure ‘dumsor’ on their sick beds. This is for the many patients who are unable to receive efficient healthcare because of ‘dumsor’. This is for you and I and the unborn generation of this great nation,” she said.
