Story: News Desk 

The National Taskforce of the Electricity Company of Ghana is set to disconnect 91 hospitals from the national grid due to outstanding debts owed to the power distributor.

The health facilities, spread across the country, collectively owe a substantial amount of GHc261 million.

According to the ECG, numerous health facilities will face power cuts 48 hours after receiving a “demand notice.”

Notable hospitals, including Korle Bu Teaching Hospital, the 37 Military Hospital, Ridge Hospital in the Greater Accra region, Komfo Anokye and Manhyia Government Hospitals in the Ashanti region, Ho Teaching Hospital in the Volta region, and Kibi Government Hospital in the Eastern region, are among those at risk of disconnection.

This move is part of the ECG’s comprehensive effort to recover funds owed by customers to strengthen its operational capabilities.

Similar situations had recently affected institutions like Accra Academy, Parliament, and the Accra Sports Stadium.
