Kejetia Market to pay an amount of GHS2.1m – ECG

 The board of the New Kejetia Market situated in Kumasi in the Ashanti Region is obliged to the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) to the tune of GHS2.1million 

These back payments are for a six-month length, as per the ECG. 

The General Manager of the Public Affairs Directorate of the ECG, Erasmus Kyere Baidu made the disclosures in a meeting with Alfred Ocansey on 3FM's Sunrise on Thursday. 

"The market owes us GHS2.1m for a time of a half year", he clarified. 

Business exercises have been stopped as the board of one of Ghana's greatest exchanging focuses, the new Kejetia Market in Kumasi, has shortened power supply to more than 8,000 shops on Wednesday. 

This is as aftereffect of unsettled conflicts between the brokers and the administration over the installment of power bills. 

Before this, Management of the market supposedly secured many shops in the market following the refusal of the merchants to cover their power bills and other assistance charges. 

Responding to the issue, Mr. Baidu clarified that "being alive without power is awkward yet we [ECG] manage the organization and not people". 

"We have pronounced the last quarter of the year as 'activity gather and right' our bills so it isn't just the Kejetia Market that we have designated". 

He clarified that "yesterday we were at Obuasi, Abuwakwa, and different spots. It's an entire exercise and we are not yielding. The objective is to ensure we gather every one of our bills and Kejetia is only one of them". 

Found out if the singular dealers can apply for their singular meter, Mr. Baidu clarified that on the grounds that the market is being overseen by an organization, people reserve no privilege to bye-pass the organization and apply for their own meters. 

"The board can go to the ECG for another course of action for another singular meters however they are on the way. The brokers can't sidestep their administration to come straightforwardly to us for a singular meters". 

The Manager said as of now, "we have given them transitory power and surrendered them to the furthest limit of the week to determine the issue and hit us up".
