The government will fully absorb electricity bills for the poorest of the poor[life line consumers] i.e free electricity for those who consume 0-50kwh a month for the next three months, President Akufo Addo has announced.

In addition, for all other consumers, residential and commercial, government will absorb 50% of electricity bills for this period using the bill for the month of March as a benchmark.

Speaking in his 6th address to the nation on Thursday night following the outbreak of coronavirus in Ghana, President Akufo Addo said these mitigation measures are being taken to support industry, enterprise and private sector in these difficult times and provide some relief to households for lost income.

I urge Ghanaians to exercise discipline in the use of water and electricity,” he stressed.

President Akufo-Addo has last Sunday announced that water bills for all Ghanaians for the next three months – April, May, June – will be absorbed by the government, as the fight against coronavirus intensifies.

He said: “The Ghana Water Company Ltd and the Electricity Company of Ghana have been directed to ensure the stable supply of water and electricity during this period. In addition, there will be no disconnection of supply.

“Furthermore, the government will absorb the water bills for all Ghanaians for the next three months, ie, April, May, and June. All water tankers, publicly and privately-owned, are also going to be mobilized to ensure the supply of water to all vulnerable communities.”
