GRIDCo restores power after bushfire affected its transmission lines
The Ghana Grid Company, (GRIDCo) says it has restored power to all areas earlier affected by outages on Saturday.

It also said its National Interconnected Transmission System has also been fully restored and is stable.
“GRIDCo extends its appreciation to the Ghanaian public for its patience as efforts were made to restore the NITS and power to Ghanaians. Once again GRIDCo apologises for the inconvenience caused by this incident.”
