ECG resolves challenge with purchase of prepaid power

The Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) claims that by allowing customers to buy electricity from independent vending machines, the problem has been remedied.

Since Monday, September 26, 2022, users of the ECG prepayment metering system have been unable to reload at independent vending locations.

Customers across 10 operational regional districts of the ECG in Volta, Kumasi, Accra, Takoradi, Tema, Cape Coast, Kasoa, Winneba, Swedru, Koforidua, Nkawkaw, and Tafo were impacted by the issue, which lasted for about a week.

The circumstance obliged the Company to implement a number of steps, including extending the weekend workday from 9:00 to 16:00.

Akufo-Addo blames WhatsApp for cedi depreciation

The recent significant devaluation of the Ghana cedi against the dollar and other major currencies, according to President of the Republic of Ghana, H.E. Nana Addo Danquah Akufo-Addo, is the result of speculation.

He claimed that a two-minute audio message posted anonymously on the WhatsApp network spread panic and dread.

We all went to banks and forex offices to sell our cedis, and before we knew it, the cedi had further devalued, he alleged, because of an anonymous two-minute audio message on the WhatsApp platform that predicted a so-called haircut on government bonds.

According to the President, criticizing and making “unnecessary” comments about the local currency will only make it weaker.

The President emphasized that “sika mpe dede,” meaning “money doesn’t like noise,” in the Akan regional dialect during his speech to the nation on Sunday, October 30.

Your money will decrease if you talk negatively about it. Your money will decrease if you let an amorphous person criticize it.

“My fellow Ghanaians, money does not enjoy noise, or as the French would say, l’argent n’aime pas le bruit, sika mp dede. You won’t find money in places where there is disorder, noise, or discontent “declared the President.

Ending the pointless clamor will, in the President’s words, “ensure a stable currency that will present a high level of predictability for citizens and the business community.”

He further said “Our motto must be “exports, not imports”! After so, the Secretariat of the African Continental Free Trade Area has its headquarters in Accra.”

Sachet water prices to go up today

Sachet and bottled water prices in Ghana will increase starting today, Monday, October 31, 2022.

This is in response to the National Association of Sachet and Packaged Water Producers’ request that sachet water prices increase by 60 pesewas.

Additionally, it was suggested that 500 ml bottles of water be sold for GHC 2.50, 750 ml bottles of water or medium-sized bottles for GHC 3.50, and 1.5 l bottles of water for GHC 5.

The Association attributed the hike to growing fuel costs and other input costs.

For instance, it stated that the Ghana Plastic Manufacturers Association (GPMA) has announced new costs for the plastic films and preforms used in the packaging of sachets and bottles of water.

Prior to today, prices last increased on September 19.

Businesses have had a lot of trouble with the cedi’s devaluation, and several sachet and packaged water makers threatened to stop making and distributing water if the government didn’t do anything to stop the currency’s wild slide.
