Government has announced an official end to the four-year long load shedding exercise which plagued the country.
In a statement signed by the head of Public Affairs of the Ministry of Power Kweku Sersah-Johnson, Wednesday, government thanked Ghanaians for their patience during the difficult times.
The announcement comes two days before the January 1 2016 deadline given by the Power Minister Dr Kwabena Donkor.
He had vowed to resign if the perennial power crisis continued after the end of the year.
It appears however that government has resolved the crisis.
The following is the full statement;
