Ghana’s Ministry of Energy has promised to supply about 500 solar lanterns to East Ada District Assembly for onward distribution to settlers of island communities in the area.

Energy Minister John-Peter Amewu made the promise following a request by the District Chief Executive of East Ada, Sarah Dugbakie Pobee, that the people in the island communities in the area need solar lanterns to provide them with light at night.

Mr. Amewu, speaking at a sod cutting ceremony for the construction of mini-grids electricity for Alokpem, Azizakpe and Aflive, said the Akufo-Addo-administration was determined to ensure that island and lakeside communities get access to electricity through the deployment of decentralised mini-grid systems.
