The electricity Company of Ghana is at the verge of losing some of its transformers and other properties to a private organization as they failed to heed to their terms of service with them.
The private contractors therefore are sending a warning to the ECG to pay their debt on time or risk loosing their gadgets.
The contractors are accusing ECG of failing to pay them for services they genuinely executed dating back to the days of Power Distribution Services (PDS) in 2019.
The contractors say all efforts to have ECG pay their monies have yielded no results.
One of the members of the group, Abeiku Amoako spoke to Media persons about their ordeal.
“In 2019, we did some jobs for PDS but because PDS is no longer in existence, ECG doesn’t want to pay us the money. The contract they say was signed under PDS, so they are not going to pay the money to us. So, we went to ECG and pleaded with them to pay us, but they directed us to the PDS office in Cantonments. So we went to meet PDS, and they are also saying, they have handed over to ECG with their assets and liabilities”.
According to Mr. Amoako, they have no other option than to pull down the transformers if ECG fails to make payment upon the expiration of the fourteen-day ultimatum.
“As of now, ECG has to pay us now. We have given them two weeks and if they fail to pay us, will go and take down the transformers. This is what we have decided to do”,
