Most Ghanaians are now reacting to the news of the Hyundai company manufacturing an electric vehicle in Ghana considering the consistent power outages we experiencing in the country.
According to many, the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) can not even provide enough power to our various homes for domestic consumption, so how much more providing enough power to ‘power’ our cars.
