The District Chief Executive (DCE) for Kassena-Nankana in the Upper East Region, Hon. Emmanuel Chegeweh, has stressed the need for Ghanaians to patronise the energy saving bulbs instead of the incandescent lamps.
He said the government was concerned about the energy crisis and that was it had introduced several strategies to address the issue.
Hon. Chegeweh said this on, when launching the introduction of the "energy saving bulbs" in the District, said economic activities of the country nearly came to a standstill during the energy crisis.
He cited the ongoing construction of the West African Gas Pipeline, the Bui dam, and the energy saving bulbs as some of the measures being put in place to address the energy crisis.
Hon. Chegeweh cautioned those distributing the bulbs that they would be sanctioned if caught selling it, because they were free of charge.
