The Electricity Company of Ghana, ECG, has cut power supply to the Cape Coast Sports Stadium over legacy debt of GHC513,000.
The move forms part of the company’s nationwide action to reduce debts owed it to ensure it stays in business.
Since Monday, March 20, it had embarked on an aggressive revenue mobilization drive as part of efforts to reduce its debt situation, which is affecting operations. This is targeted at every customer owing the ECG and not only state-owned entities.
In an interview with Ghana News Agency, the Regional Sports Director, Alexander Tieku, said the disconnection would greatly affect its activities as a monumental state asset.
He further explained that the debt inherited many years ago was being settled on an arranged negotiations with the ECG, when the facility was first disconnected sometime last year.
Management had also engaged officials of the ECG to install pre-paid meters to direct the chunk of the bills to the various business units at the stadium.
