He told the newspaper that statutory board would collect all electricity bills and pay all stakeholders their share through a cascading waterfall system, will be responsible for disconnection of defaulting consumers, and it would ensure that all government institutions pay their electricity bills.

The interview comes on the heels of plans by government to privatise the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG).

It is unclear how the board will operate since the ECG will be privatise for 25 years and may be performing the same functions as the proposed liquidity management board by the NPP.

Ghana is going through excruciating power supply that is affecting business operations and planning.

But Agyarko said the the liquidity management board system is one of the numerous reforms line-up to fix the power sector.
