President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo in his sixth address to the nation on the measures taken to ease the burden of Ghanaians during this period has announced that the government would fully absorb electricity bills for the poorest of the poor.
The government will fully absorb the electricity bills of the poorest of the poor – that is – for all lifeline consumers or persons who consume 0 – 50 Kw/h of power a month for the next three months to ease their burden following the partial lockdown of some parts of the country to prevent further spread of COVID-19, he said.
In addition, the government will absorb 50% of the cost of electricity for all other consumers, residential and commercial.
This according to President Akufo-Addo is to support industry, enterprises and the service sector in these not so normal times.
He explained that he was concerned about the welfare of his people and would always be around to support them as every leader is expected to do.
