A press release signed by Mr S.Q. Barnor of the Ministry of Energy, said the Volta River Authority and the Electricity Company of Ghana had been informed of the directive and were expected to comply.
“Government takes this opportunity to wish all Moslems a Happy Eid-El-Fitr celebration,” the statement added.
