Employment and Labour Relations Minister, Haruna Iddrisu, says he is now a happy person because the energy crisis that befell the country has come to end.

Contributing to the motion for the adoption of President John Mahama’s State of the Nation Address, Thursday, Mr. Iddrisu said he was much worried, especially when a cross section of the public started mimicking him with the promise he made some time ago on the floor of Parliament that when the NDC is voted into power, ‘adumdum adumdum begyai’, to wit the erratic power supply will cease.

However, he said with about 800MW installed capacity added to the national grid, the energy crisis is over and his pride now restored.

“Mr. Speaker, today I have my honour back that the President has lived his word and adumdum adumdum agyai (to with the frequent power outages is over)”, he noted.

He said he is very confident that even if the country will ever encounter any challenge in the next year or two, it will certainly not be that of energy to power industries and light households.
