Paramount chief of Gomoa Akyempim Traditional Area, Ahunako Ahor Ankobea II, has bemoaned huge electricity bills the Electricity Company of Ghana has been given him and his people. According to Nana anytime his bills come, he has to go and negotiate with ECG to take a second look at the bills. He said, it’s a disgrace to see Nana negotiating for light bill anytime the bill comes. He is calling on ECG to ensure they are given commensurate bill. If ECG fails to do so, then their new customer service office that has just been opened at Gomoa Oguaa to serve the people will be if no use them. Ahunako Ahor Ankobea II said if this is not retify, together with his people, they will prefer to go back to the use of lantern rather than the electricity as they can’t pay those huge bills. Management of ecg decided to open a service center at Gomoa Oguaa to serve the people of Gomoa Akyempim Traditional Area since consumers had to travel several kilometers to either Winneba or Agona Swedru to pay their bills or access any other ECG related service.

Samuel Boakye Appiah, is assuring consumers that ecg is committed to it core mandate to provide quality, safe, reliable source of power to support the economic growth and development of Ghana, hence the company has invested amount of 6.4 million Cedis in the construction of eleven business centers across the country.
