ECG to start extensive disconnection exercise over GHc5bn debt

ECG to start extensive disconnection exercise over GHc5bn debt

The Electricity Company of Ghana will begin a large-scale disconnection exercise on Monday, March 20, in order to generate revenue.

Mr. Samuel Dubik Mahama Esq., Managing Director, stated that the company is owed more than GHS 5 billion from September 2022 to February 2023.

The majority of this debt is held by SOEs and MDAs. This exercise stems from the numerous institutions that owe the energy company,

This will be the fate of many other Ministries, Departments, and Agencies (MDAs) and State Owned Enterprises (SOEs) that owe ECG large sums of money, forcing the power retailer to embark on a massive revenue mobilization exercise beginning Monday, March 20, 2023, and ending Thursday, April 20, 2023.

As a result, the strategy is to take these agencies by storm starting March 20th, 2023, and those who refuse to settle their bill immediately will face the same punishment as the Ministry of Energy, who had their power disconnected until they paid their bills in full.

Mr. Dubik Mahama, M.D., toured all of ECG’s operational regions to educate staff on how to go about revenue mobilization and to always respect the customer.

He also reminded the staff that ECG is a business, not a charity, and that everyone must start acting like one. It is anticipated that at the conclusion of the exercise, 100% of the debt will be recovered.

The exercise involves almost all ECG personnel, from top management to junior officers, in order to recover all monies owed to them.
