The Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) says an unpaid debt by Accra Academy Senior High School has led to a total blackout in the school.

The boys' school is believed to be owing ECG an amount of GH¢400,000 - this compelled the power service providers to disconnect them. 

According to the head of the prosecution at ECG, the disconnection is part of an ongoing initiative to recover outstanding payments owed to the company.

"Normally, we have a team that goes around once a while to inform our customers of their debts so they do not accumulate and so if you take Accra Academy for example, they owe more than GH¢400,000 to the ECG.” Mr Paul Agraga told Citi FM in an interview and was monitored by Theannouncergh.com

He, however, rubbished claims that ECG is only targeting schools as widely circulated.

“We did not specifically target Accra Academy, it is an ongoing operation we are conducting, and several homes, businesses, and institutions have also suffered the same fate.

“The no-free consumption does not discriminate at all and once you owe, you will be disconnected. It does not matter whether it is Parliament or a security service because we also owe people that we have to pay.” He said.
