The sum represents a portion of GH 46.9 million that Parliament, Ghana Airport Company Limited, and the national broadcaster, Ghana Broadcasting Corporation (GBC), collectively possess.

Out of the GH13 million that Parliament owns in total, the house has agreed to pay GH8.5 million to keep the connection after the ECG rejected an early offer of one million cedis. Laila Abubakari, Manager of External Communications for the ECG, stated that “the Finance Ministry will pay the GH5 million of the GH8.5 million they promised through the GIFMIS website. For the remaining GH$3.5 million, they have sent us a check, but we asked that they process it online because we are not taking checks or cash for this exercise.

Thereafter, the team traveled to the airport to recover GH28 million that was outstanding in arrears to the Ghana Airport Company Limited.

Security resisted the team and the media professionals because they were allegedly “invading” their property. A few agitations were caused by the security’s actions.

Officials from the GACL made an upfront payment of GH$10 million after a brief discussion with the ECG. They have agreed to pay the remaining GH18 million within the next two weeks.

The Ghana Broadcasting Corporation, which also owes the ECG GH5.9 million, called off the day’s activity there.

The official broadcaster claims that the Ministry of Information and the Ministry of Energy had already agreed to pay the debt this year after clearing almost GH17 million of the total last year.

These state-owned entities’ commitments prevented any disconnections from occurring that day.

Tomorrow, Wednesday, March 22, 2023, the team will start day two of the exercise with visits to more state-owned institutions throughout the following 30 days.

Power distributor said it is hopeful of collecting “100% of the total GH5.7 billion at the end of the statewide exercise,” which is the portion of the exercise focused on state-owned institutions and is being led by an ECG national taskforce.
