But for a partial payment of GH¢8 million of some GH¢13 million it owes power distributor Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG), the Parliament of Ghana would have been disconnected from the national grid on Monday, 20 March 2023.

The revenue mobilisation task force of ECG was in parliament today, as part of its revenue drive.

ECG is using the exercise to collect some GH¢5 billion owed in power bills by both state and private consumers.

The bills have been outstanding since August 2022.

Apart from its customer support departments, ECG has closed down its main offices so as to focus on the debt collection drive.

The exercise will last for a month.
