Samuel Dubik Mahama, the Managing Director of the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG), has disclosed that Senior High Schools across the country owe over GH₵45 million to the company. Expressing concern over the mounting debt, Mahama emphasized the urgency of addressing the issue promptly.

Mahama highlighted the severity of the situation, stating, “In the present scenario, the accumulated bill from schools amounts to almost GH₵45 million in arrears. When considering all accounts nationwide, our total debt stock should be around GH₵2.5 billion based on the data available to me,” during an interview with TV3.

Apologizing for any inconvenience caused, Mahama assured that the recent disconnection of Accra Academy was not the company’s primary intention. He stated, “I extend my apologies to Accra Academy and others affected. I understand the distress caused. Disconnection was not our primary goal. I have scheduled a meeting with the Director General of the Ghana Education Service before the week’s end to devise lasting solutions to these issues.”

Mahama clarified that the disconnection of Accra Academy was part of a broader nationwide effort to retrieve overdue payments.
