ECG cuts off power to Cape Coast stadium

ECG cuts off power to Cape Coast stadium

The Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) has cut off power supply to the Cape Coast stadium over unpaid bills. 

The Stadium which was recently inaugurated amidst pomp and pageantry by President John Dramani Mahaha owes the electricity company  GHC719,792.56.  The Cape Coast stadium's disconnection from the grid was part of ECG's ongoing mass disconnection exercise .

Meanwhile, in the Eastern region, institutions such as the St. Joseph's Hospital and the Ghana Prisons Service have all been affected in the exercise. The exercise also sparked a scuffle at the Koforidua Prisons as officers there reportedly ceased the ladder of the ECG task force who had gone there to disconnect.

The Koforidua Polytechnic was however spared after pleading with part-payment of its debt.

ECG officials will continue with the exercise at the Eastern regional headquarters of the Police Service and other institutions this week. The move is being carried out by the state power distributor to collect outstanding debts from customers.
