ECG Proposes An Increase In Tariffs To Support Operational Activities

Published

on

The Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) says it needs more funds to support its operational activities.

The Managing Director of the company, Kwame Agyeman-Budu at a public forum on Thursday, April 8, 2021, said while ‘he is aware that the proposal will only materialize after approval from the Public Utilities and Regulatory Commission (PURC), he believes that ECG must have access to more funds to enable it to operate efficiently ‘.

Currently, lifeline consumers who are rated as poor and low-income earners pay GHS16 for the power consumed and extra GHS2.13 as service charge, making it a total of about GHS18.

“We need money to do it [improve]. If we get the increase we will love it [but] that will be up to the PURC because, no matter what we propose, they will ultimately decide.”

“In terms of distribution, we need support, because we have to do upgrades to make sure the system is sustainable.

We don’t wait till something is broken before we fix it. We need additional funds to upgrade our systems at all times,” he added.

On whether the bid will not lead to an extra burden on the finances of Ghanaians, Agyeman-Budu said the details will be given should PURC approve.

Meantime, a former ranking member of Parliament’s Mines and Energy committee, Mutawakilu Adam has hit against the scheme, emphasising that the ECG has not shown efficiency in its operations to warrant an increase in tariffs.

Published

on

Reports coming in from the famous Accra Timber markets suggest some part of the place is on fire and some personnel from the Ghana Fire Service went to the venue without water.

As at now, its not known what might have caused the fire at the market which mostly trades in ‘wood’ by an eye witness account reveals people from the market called the Ghana National Fire Service and reported to them about some place of the market burning in flames.

They say the Fire Service responded to the call swiftly and upon arriving at the place, told the people and the shop owners around that they don’t have water in their truck to quench off the fire which was spreading to other areas of the market.

This left the people and the shop owners to result in a different method to try and quench off the fire and prevent it from spreading to other shops around.

Since the news hit media circles Ghanaians are reacting to it stating Fire Service don’t have water to quench off fire but yet still, the Ghana Police Service yesterday filled their trucks with hot water ready to spray it on #FixTheCountry protestors.

Check out the video of some parts of the market burning and the some comments from the public;

He said that Nana Akufo Addo and his appointees are planning to eliminate the actor for some reasons better known to him.

Well, he never specified as to the President and his appointees would want to eliminate John Dumelo but he cautioned his to be extra careful.

He wrote; ”John Dumelo should be very vigilant, What happen to Ahmed Suale might happen to him. Nana Addo and his appointees are evil, they are planning to eliminate him.#Ibrahone”

See the screenshot below:

Meanwhile, Ibrah One also took his platform to launch fresh attacks on controversial politician, Kennedy Agyapong following his comments on the #FixTheCountry campaign.

In his post, he also said that Karma will one day brutally deal with the Assin Central representative in parliament.

Kennedy Agyapong should Fix his foolishness before coming out to tell Ghanaians to fix their minds. When karma hits Kennedy in the face, Ghanaians will there. Just in case it needs some help.#Ibrahone, he wrote.
