Ghanaian media personality and a co-host of New Day Show on TV3, Cookie Tee, has advised the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) to write to Guinness World Records to compete for dumsor-a-thon competition.
Cookie Tee made these hilarious comments while co-hosting TV3 New Day morning show with celebrated media personality, Naa Ashorkor.
Her jokey remarks came shortly after a caller complained that his lights have been off from January 8 to January 11 and ECG is yet to restore power to his area.
“At this point I just think that the ECG can maybe write to Guinness World Records to get into the Dumsor-a-thon competition,” she said.
She added that since ECG has already done 55hours of dumsor, then she believes they can do same for the rest of the year.
Naa Ashorkor pleaded with Cookie Tee not to provoke ECG to accept the dumsor-a-thon challenge.

Relatedly, Lydia Forson has expressed her worry about the ongoing blackouts, or “Dumsor,” that are occurring across the nation.
This occurs at the same time that some Accra neighborhoods began to experience sporadic power supply on Tuesday, January 9, 2024, with comparable issues continuing for months in other areas.
Lydia Forson warned Ghanaians not to minimize the gravity of the situation in a post on Platform X on Thursday, January 10, underlining that the current power outages are exactly like those that occurred in 2015.
Lydia Forson declared categorically,“If I write about #dumsor, I don’t want any of you dimwits under my tweets giving analysis on why this is different from 2015! The lights are off, and I want them on; that’s all I care about.”
The government’s response to the power outages has also drawn criticism from Deputy Minority Leader Emmanuel Armah-Kofi Buah, who called the government’s silence on the subject “deafening.”
The Ellembelle MP expressed his displeasure and requested that the Ghana Grid Company (GRIDCo) provide a load-shedding schedule so that businesses and households could make plans.
