The Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II has called on the Ministry of Energy and power-producing agencies to expedite efforts at curbing the power crises in the Ashanti Region.

He said the erratic power supply, which has become rampant, is impacting adversely on the lives of the people in the region, including himself and his household.

The Asantehene was addressing the Minister of Energy, Board Members of GRIDCo and ECG officials who paid a visit to the Manhyia Palace.

The Otumfuo observed that productivity is being threatened and could be severely hampered if solutions are not found urgently.
