ECG Restores Power to Accra Academy After Debt Settlement

The Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) has reinstated power supply to the Accra Academy after a brief disconnection on Monday, February 19, 2024. The interruption, attributed to an unpaid debt of GH¢400,000, prompted ECG’s action, which is part of its efforts to recover outstanding debts owed by consumers.

Sources reveal that the government has allocated GH¢5 million to settle arrears owed by Second Cycle institutions, with the Free SHS Secretariat swiftly authorizing payment to resolve the Accra Academy’s outstanding debt. However, ECG emphasizes that this disconnection is part of a wider initiative aimed at debt recovery.

Meanwhile, the Ministry of Finance and Parliament face potential disconnection from the national grid due to outstanding electricity debts of GH¢1 million and GH¢23 million, respectively, highlighting ongoing challenges in debt management within the public sector.
