I HAVE RECEIVED CALLS TO STOP DISCONNECTION EXERCISE – ECG Boss

The managing director of Electricity Company Ghana (ECG) has disclosed that he has received petitions to halt the disconnection operation they are conducting to recover overdue bills.

Samuel Dubik Mahama claims that friends, influential people, and politicians are calling him.

He said the request made is “can you hold off?”

The ECG boss made this disclosure in an interview on JoyNews’ PM Express on Tuesday.

This follows the power company’s massive disconnection operation on Monday in an effort to pay off a debt of GH¢5.7 billion.

ECG asked its customers to pay up or be disconnected from the grid.

The company says it risk shutting down if they are unable to clear an outstanding $1 billion owed to some Independent Power Producers (IPP) hence the revenue mobilisation drive.

As a result, Mr Mahama says a halt in the exercise could be dire for ECG.

“How do we pay the Independent Power Producers? How do we pay GRIDCo? How do we pay VRA? It is a shared responsibility.

“Please let’s just do the right thing because I don’t even have the moral right after sending somebody out of the office to pick up the phone and call him and say ‘hello, can you cut X, Y and Z slack? No’ then what is the moral of the exercise?”’ he questioned.
