Utility tariffs will be reduced if I am elected - Nana Addo

Ghanaians have in recent times being complaining of the high cost of utility as well as the inconsistent supply of the utility to homes and businesses.


The Public Utility Regulatory Commission (PURC) had called for the suspension of the new billing software used by the Electricity Company of Ghana after investigations of complaints of irregular charges by customers.

Speaking at Chorkor in the Greater Accra region as part of his tour in the Greater Accra region, Nana Addo said “Everywhere I have been to, I have spoken to people about the cost of prepaid electricity. By the grace of God if I am elected President of Ghana I will reduce electricity and water tariffs. Yes I can do it. Secondary and Senior High School education will also be free,”

The PURC in December late last year increased electricity and water tariffs by 59.2 percent and 67.2 percent respectively. A development most industries and individuals described as unreasonable.

But Nana Addo on his tour said the increments of utility tariffs will be a thing of the past if he is elected in the November 7 polls. He is expected to begin touring Central Region today. He will start from Awutu Senya West.
