New Kejetia Market Has Had Power Restored After A 20% Payment Of The Gh¢5.2m Debt Owed To The ECG

The New Kejetia Market's power has been restored after being switched off on Wednesday, June 22, thanks to a 20% payment of the GH5.2 million debt owed to the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG).

The cutting-edge market, which is also referred to as the largest market in West Africa, was disconnected from the national grid due to enormous debts that had been building up for 14 months.

The managing director of the market, Edmund Kofi Duffour, stated earlier on Akoma FM's current affairs and political program Ghana Akoma Tuesday, June 28, that "the lights will be restored before close of business because the service providers have assured after a commitment of 20 percent of the debt was paid."

"We have been working with the ECG, and there is a payment plan, so we have issued post-dated checks to cover some of the debt. We are on track, and we are hopeful that the situation will be calm so that traders can get lights to do business."

The market Board, management, and traders have repeatedly complained and demanded separate meters in order to ensure effective administration of the shops and bills, but for various reasons, no agreement has yet been reached.

Mr. Kofi Duffour promises that the problems with the acquisition of the separate meters will be resolved quickly once the light is restored.
