Hon Lee Ocran who currently serves as the 6th National Chairman of the National Democratic Congress blamed his Party’s communication outfit for poorly educating Ghanaians on the causes of the power crisis and government initiatives to permanently deal with it.
He revealed that he pity the President for the lies technocrats have told him which have led him (the president) to give timelines to the end of the power crisis which did not materialize.
