Ghana Police Service to support ECG in collecting revenue

The Volta Regional General Manager for the Electricity Company of Ghana, Ing. Delali Oklu, has requested for the support of the Ghana Police Service, as his outfit embarks on intensive revenue mobilization programme.

The programme which is being undertaken nationwide is intended to help ECG achieve the targeted revenue for 2018.

Ing Oklu during a familiarization visit to the Volta Regional Police Command, detailed that “as part of the programme, ECG staff will visit all houses to assess the integrity of their electricity connections. Staff will also be available in communities to receive payments from defaulting customers, and where there is failure to settle debts; we will be forced to curtail services to them [customers].”

“To prevent disconnected customers from reconnecting themselves under the cover of darkness, a special night monitoring team will be deployed, and they will require Police protection” he added.

The Deputy Volta Regional Police Commander, DCOP Doku, assured the full support of the command in the exercise, recounting the excellent working relations that exists between the Command and the ECG.

“Electricity is a very important resource in security provision and crime prevention so we are duty bound as a security Agency to fully support any institution, especially when their services have a direct impact on security. All District commanders will be duly informed to provide maximum support to officers of the Company, throughout the period of this intensive exercise” DCOP Doku said.

The nationwide intensive revenue mobilization programme began on July 2, 2018.
