“We agreed on problems that confront them [ECG]. We are finding a way out of resolving and we have agreed have they bring us extra documents and we are also inviting certain people to come and helps us. It has been agreed the yes, there is over-billing, there is a problem and that we should all work very fast to correct the anomaly,” he stated.
