Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) has served notice that it will cut the power supply to certain some state institutions including, the
Ghana Broadcasting Corporation.
The exercise will start tomorrow Wednesday 20 October 2021.
The Kumasi Kumasi International Airport is also indebted to the ECG.
The nationwide operation, dubbed “Collect or Correct,” is aimed at cleaning ECG’s debt data as well as recovering monies that customers owe the power service provider.
The Ashanti Regional managing director of ECG, David Asamoah, disclosed that the exercise would help the firm recover about GHC1 billion in debt and help “serve Asanteman better”.
“At the moment, people have even paid for services and things we are unable to provide because we also owe our creditors. So we need to be able to find money to pay them,” Asamoah said.
The Ashanti regional GBC office owes ECG almost GHC2 million, and Kumasi Kejetia Market owes GHC2.1 million of the total debt.
