GBC to clear GH¢6.1 million debt owed ECG

The management of the Ghana Broadcasting Corporation GBC says it is working to clear debts owed to the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG), which resulted in the company’s power is disconnected.

The state broadcaster’s head office and transmission station were disconnected from the national grid within a week due to an unpaid bill debt of 8 million cedis.

Acting Director of TV and Marketing George Lomotey assured the media that the company would pay its bills.
“There is no problem here. GBC is still in operation and will remain so. “We’re going to pay off all of our debts,” he said.

The ECG taskforce was ordered two days ago to disconnect the national broadcaster from the national power grid for failing to demonstrate commitment to paying its months-long debt.

GBC will face a similar fate for nonpayment of electricity bills for the third time, if not more.

GBC was taken off the national grid earlier this month due to unpaid utility bills totaling GH15,420,246.
The state broadcaster was also disconnected in October 2021 for failing to pay its power distributor debt.
