Mr. Eugine Odoi Addo, the Upper West Regional Area manager for the Northern Electricity Distribution Company (NEDCO) has urged residents in the region to remain calm noting that they will soon enjoy the 50% electricity cut by the President.
Government in a bit to cushion citizens within the period of the ravaging Corona virus has announced an electricity relief package for Ghanaians.
It includes subsidies for businesses and free electricity for those who consume below 50 kilowatts.
Speaking to Radio Progress over the weekend in an exclusive interview, Mr. Eugine indicated that, the announcement by the President came in late since consumers had already bought power in April.
He said power consumers that fall within the directive will all enjoy the three months subsidy.
He also expressed his opinion over the directive by indicating that, it would make their work easier in collecting of revenue though pressure would be mounted on government financing on the payment.
