The Volta regional office of the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) has said it will drag state-owned agencies that owe it to court if their debts are not settled.
About 218 high debtor customers owe the ECG approximately 3.6 million Ghana cedis.
According to the ECG, the defaulters are yet to settle all debts despite being served with demand notices after being disconnected.

Demand Notices are the final reminders issued by ECG to customers who fail to pay their arrears despite being disconnected for non-payment of bills.
Also customers who have received the Demand Notices have a maximum of fourteen (14) days to clear the arrears in full or risk being sent to court.
Defaulting customers in the Volta region who have been served include individuals, District Assemblies, schools, the Ghana Broadcasting Corporation (GBC), Ghana Post etc.
Ing Joseph Mensah Forson further stressed the commitment of ECG to retrieve to the last pesewa, all monies owed the company.
