ECG cuts power to Kejetia market over debt

Due to delinquent invoices, the Electricity Company of Ghana once more cut the grid to the Kumasi Kejetia Market in the Ashanti region’s Kumasi Metropolis.

On Wednesday, June 22, 2022, the power distribution corporation removed the power from the market.

The market opened later than planned for traders and cars because of the power outage since they became trapped at the market’s different entrances.

The Electricity Company of Ghana has now cut electricity to the market twice.

The first occurred the previous year when the market management owed the electricity distribution firm more than Gh2 million.

According to reports, the market vendors refused to pay their fees for almost eight months.

The traders made the decision to exert pressure on the market board to accept their demand that each business own a meter since the market as a whole only uses one meter, according to the dealers.

The Combined Kumasi Kejetia Traders Association’s public relations representative, Mrs. Patricia Acheampong, explained to Class News’ regional correspondent, Elisha Adarkwah, that the association decided not to pay the bills in order to pressure the market board to support their demand that each shop in the market own a meter.

She made the regrettable observation that there is only one electricity meter for the entire market.
