ECG To Disconnect GBC Over GHc15 Million Debt; 28 Others Institutions To Suffer Same Fate
The Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) has listed at 29 institutions for disconnection over huge debts. Among the listed institutions is the Ghana Broadcasting Corporation (GBC) which is said to be owing the Electricity Company some GH¢15, 420,246.
Out of the total debt, African Entertainment has gathered that the GBC transmission alone owes a total bill of GH¢4, 281,342, while the GBC itself owes GH¢11, 138,904.
It would be recalled that in October 2021, ECG disconnected GBC for failing to settle its indebtedness.
Since then, the State broadcaster, according to sources has shown little commitment in settling its debts.
It has therefore taken the 14th and 15th position on a list of 29 highly indebted clients of ECG targeted for disconnection.
The 29 listed companies are from both the public and private sectors.
The heavily indebted institutions on the list include: Ghana Airport Company, Parliament, UNDP, EOCO, UPSA, Ministry of Communication, Kofi Annan Center, Entrance Pharmacy.
It is emerging that the ECG has already served most the institutions “demand or disconnection notices".
