Ghana’s Finance Minister has announce that Ghanaians will enjoy three months of free water and electricity supply as government further reduces the burden of the Covid-19 pandemic on the citizery.
According Ken Ofori-Atta who announced this during his Mid-year Budget review, it is because government puts the concerns and aspirations of the ordinary Ghanaian first.
“That is also why we further reduced electricity prices by half and completely provided potable water for free for everybody since March this year. And we will extend it for another 3 months,” he told Parliament, Thursday.
According to the Minister, the free water initiative would be for all water consumers while the electricity supply would be limited to only lifeline consumers.
