ECG Cuts Power to Ohene Djan Sports Stadium over GH¢240,000 of Unpaid Bills

Power supply to the Accra Sports Stadium has been cut by the Electricity Company of Ghana over unpaid bills.
The Accra Sports Stadium in 2015 owed the ECG bills worth GH¢240,000 and were placed on a payment plan of GH¢24,000 per month to enable them to clear the debt but reports indicate that managers of the facility have been unable to clear the debts.
Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the National Sports Authority, Frederica Mensah-Davies told Graphic Online that power supply to the national stadium was cut on Tuesday.
“We are not the only ones who are owing, we have paid our sum for this month as part of the agreement but they (ECG) have asked us to pay a bit more for them to reconnect us.
“We are hopeful that we will be able to raise the sum required by close of day to restore the power,” Madam Mensah-Davies added.
The Accra Sports stadium is the second stadia to be disconnected by the ECG as part of their mass disconnection exercise.
Power the newly constructed Cape Coast Sports Stadium was also disconnected a few weeks ago for owing the ECG GH¢719,792.46.
