The Managing Director of the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG), Samuel Dubik Mahama, has revealed that the Chief of Staff, Akosua Frema Osei-Opare, expressed her dissatisfaction with the ECG’s failure to carry out its responsibilities properly, especially regarding the payment of bills by former President John Dramani Mahama.
Mahama said that the ECG is responsible for reading the former president’s meter and submitting the bills to the Chief of Staff’s office for payment, but this has not been done. During a meeting with the Chief of Staff, she expressed her disappointment and stressed the need for the company to improve its services.
Mahama explained that former President John Mahama had been paying his own bills, and discussions will be held with him to ensure that his bills are settled by the state in accordance with the country’s constitution.
Mahama assured Ghanaians that the ECG is committed to providing reliable and uninterrupted power supply and will continue to work towards improving its services and addressing any challenges that arise. He urged all customers to settle their bills promptly to avoid disconnection and any inconvenience that may arise.
It may be recalled that in an exclusive interview with TV3 in 2022, John Dramani Mahama said that all he receives from the government is his monthly pension and that all other bills the state must cater for have not been attended to since he left office in 2017, including light, fuel, office rent, and travel expenses.
