Following the company’s debt recovery initiative, the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) managing director, Mr Samuel Dubik Mahama revealed that the company was able to recover more than GHc2 billion from their debtors in the previous month.
Mr Dubik Mahama disclosed this in an interview in separate radio interviews on Peace FM and Asempa FM on issues.
ECG began a month-long operation to collect debts from clients on Monday, March 20, 2023.
It was the company’s aim to recover GHc5.7 billion.
Domestic consumers, commercial users, organizations, departments, ministries, and state agencies were the targets for power previously used between February 2022 and February 2023.
During the one-month period, ECG temporarily shut down all of its administrative offices and assigned its employees to serve as collectors in the field.
According to the MD’s declaration, the operation is slated to end on Thursday, April 20, 2023. He also revealed that over half of the target has been reached.
The Managing Director stated that the next phase of the exercise will focus on unlawful connections, particularly those that had obliterated ECG meters and were utilizing electricity without being charged for it.
