Ivory Coast will give away 82MW of power to help soothe Ghana’s broken heart after the Black Stars narrowly lost the 2015 African Cup of Nations to Les Elephants in an emotional and pulsating penalty shoot-out.
This unexpected kind gesture by the Ivorians is expected to shield the already distraught Ghanaian public from further misery as the nation is set to resume it’s uninterrupted interruption of power supply. “We are obviously excited that we won, but we are also aware that our victory has left Ghanaians heartbroken. We feel for them and we just cannot stand by and watch as dumsor drowns Ghanaians in further misery,” explained one Ivorian official.
The Ivorians, who had earlier sold 80MW of power to Ghana to ensure Ghanaians could watch the semi-final and final without interruptions in power supply, explained that it will be a double blow for Ghanaians to lose the final game and wallow in unending dumsor immediately after. They described the free supply of the 82MW of power as “a small gesture to ease the pain.”
A senior Ivorian official added that “dumsor and a broken heart are a bad mix so hopefully, this gift of 82MW will lighten up the mood in Ghana.”
