ECG to embark on massive disconnection exercise to retrieve Ghc5bn debt
In an effort to raise money, the Electricity Corporation of Ghana will start a large disconnection procedure on Monday, March 20.
The activity comes after the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) disconnected the Ministry of Energy on Tuesday of last week, leaving the entire facility in the dark for over half a day. Power was only restored after the mother ministry of the ECG paid their payment in full.
Many other Ministries, Departments, and Agencies (MDAs) and State Owned Enterprises (SOEs) that owe ECG enormous sums of money will suffer the same fate, causing the power retailer to launch the massive revenue mobilization exercise starting on Monday, March 20, 2023, through Thursday, April 20, 2023.

To recover all the money owing to them, nearly every member of the ECG staff—from senior management to junior officers—is participating in the exercise.
The plan is to overtake these organizations starting on March 20, 2023, and those who refuse to pay their bill right away would face the same penalties as the Ministry of Energy.
Mr. Dubik Mahama visited all of ECG’s operational areas in advance of this exercise to educate the team on how to approach revenue mobilization and to always respect the client.
At the conclusion of the exercise, it is anticipated that all of the debt will be paid off.
