Speaking through an interview on a radio news program, Mr. Kofi Kapito says any possible increment in electricity tariffs would be wrong because of the timing. Explaining further he said
“The timing is very wrong considering what the Ghanaian is going through when it comes to these recent power outages. The outages are the concern of the Ghanaian. I think if the outages are solved or resolved, we can look at these non-tariffs that ECG is proposing,”
“PURC [Public Utilities and Regulatory Commission] should look at what has gone on with the recent power outages as to how they will compensate Ghanaians who might have their appliances destroyed,” he added.
The authorities in the energy sector have made it clear that one of their biggest problems is money, so it will be better for all to encourage and support them to generate the needed funds in any good possible ways that they can.
The problems with electricity has been there for years,postponing anything that has to do with resolving the problems associated with ECG is like postponing the solutions to the problem in other to maintain the status quo
