The Ashanti regional branch of the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) has announced a massive disconnection exercise beginning Wednesday, October 20, 2021.
The exercise dubbed “Operation Collect and correct all debts” will affect Garden City radio and TV that subsidiaries of Ghana Broadcasting Cooperation(GBC)
According to the Ashanti regional ECG managing Director, David Asamoah, the state Broadcaster is owing ECG over two million cedis(Ghc2m) without making efforts to pay.
He said the Kumasi airport company among other commercial and private entities will also be affected by the exercise.
The Kumasi Kejetia market where the power supply was disconnected and restored last Wednesday will also be disconnected over two million cedis debt.
The ECG MD disclosed that currently, there’s a shortage of prepaid meters in the region that needs to be restocked but they have no money.
The power supplier is, therefore, urging all clients across the region to settle their accumulative debts before Wednesday, October 20, or suffer disconnection.
Operation ‘correct and collect’ aims at correcting all inappropriate bills and collecting all outstanding bills.
