Calls For Utility Tariff Increment Justified : CUTS International



According to CUTS International Accra, a consumer sovereignty research and public policy think tank, utility companies’ calls for higher tariffs are justified and must be considered.

Its Executive Director, Appiah Adomako, stated that if tariffs are not adjusted, utility companies’ operations may come to a halt.

On The Point of View on Monday, he said that while increasing tariffs may strain consumers’ finances, the current state of utility companies and other market factors make it necessary.

He claims that because products required for the operations of the Ghana Water Company Limited and the Electricity Company of Ghana are imported, the depreciation of the cedi, among other factors, has increased the costs incurred by the companies.

He claims that preventing ECG and the Ghana Water Company from raising tariffs will prevent them from making necessary investments.

“We can’t be irrational because ECG imports most of the things it uses; crude oil is imported with all of the dollar and exchange rate issues.” If you don’t allow utility companies to raise their prices, there won’t be the necessary investment to keep the system running, and we’ll end up with no electricity one day. “There will be no incentive for investors to enter the sector, particularly Independent Power Producers,” he argued.

Utility companies have indicated their resolve as many Ghanaians continue to struggle with the country’s rising cost of living.

ECG, for example, is proposing a 148 percent increase in tariffs, while Ghana Water Company Limited is proposing a nearly 326 percent increase in tariffs.

Some have called the proposals outrageous, but Appiah Adomako believes they are justified.

“I agree that tariffs should be raised so that the ECG can carry out its mandate.” The water company purchases chemicals, which are imported. The exchange rate, freight, and the cost of the items themselves have all increased, so we need to give them a raise so that the business can continue,” he explained.

He was optimistic, however, that the percentage increase would be far less than requested, ensuring that consumers are not overburdened.

“PURC will look at them. If you look at the historical data, PURC will give them not more than 50% of their request,” he noted.

The letter read;

16 May 2022


It is with great concern that we bring the following to your attention. We have noticed that some of our learners are acting strangely and out of character.

We learned that some of them came into contact with a terrible webpage called: Chucky’s Cheese Restaurant.

Here children interact with a demonic doll. At first, it is very entertaining and friendly, but after a while, the doll indoctrinates them, dares them and threatens them if they do not do certain things.

Daring them includes: strangle a friend, kill a teacher, burn your house, etc.

Chucky Cheese Restaurant was recently replaced by FNAF- Five Nights at Freddy, which is even worse.

These sites are already active in Namibia.

We urge you to please control what your child is watching on your phone, their own phone, tablets, laptops, etc.

We, as parents, are thinking they are playing an innocent game, but it is NOT. They are dared to even kill.

Please also inform your friends and other family members of this. Please contact our school Counselor with any enquiries or comments. tours faithfully.

Kwaku Bonsam ‘Curses’ President Akufo-Addo, This Is What He Said



Nana Kwaku Bonsam, a celebrity fetish priest, has expressed Ghanaians’ collective frustration with President Nana Akufo-Addo.

According to him, President Akufo-Addo will go to hell for deceiving Ghanaians and failing the people.

Nana Kwaku Bonsam said on Angel FM, where he pronounced the curses, that Akufo-Addo has failed to deliver on his promises to Ghanaians and is thus a sure candidate for Hell.

“You mentioned that we have the money yet are hungry. But now that you’ve joined the government, we’re even more hungry. We can’t afford to live comfortably, and our girlfriends are deserting us because we can’t afford to keep up,” he explained.

“The bible talks about lies, and the President lied, thus he will go to hell,” the fetish priest believes the President’s lies will send him to hell.

Nana Kwaku Bonsam expressed concern that Ghanaians were living in abject poverty, which had been exacerbated by poor governance and economic hardship.

As a result, he has placed the blame squarely on the shoulders of President Akufo-Addo, who he claims has failed to capitalize on the country’s resources in order to push Ghana to become a prosperous nation.
