Allow Tenants Use Water For Free Between July And September -GWCL

Published

on


The Ghana Water Company Limited (GWCL) has notified landlords to allow tenants use water for free within the next three months.

This comes after an announcement by the Finance Minister, Ken Ofori Atta in Parliament that government is extending the free water initiative for three more months to mitigate the impact of the Covid-19.

“The reason is simple. It is because we put the concerns and aspirations of the ordinary Ghanaian first. That is also why we further reduced electricity prices by half and completely provided potable water for free for everybody since March this year. And we will extend it for another three months. To break it down, it takes a caring government of the people, and with that, I mean, a Government of all the people, to offer cost-free water to all across the country: representing all domestic and commercial customers in Ghana for three months,” he said.

In a statement, the GWCL said, “All Domestic customers of the Ghana Water Company Limited (GWCL) on category 611 shall have their bills from July, August and September 2020, absorbed and paid by Government… Landlords and landladies who sell water to tenants must allow tenants to use the water for free from July, August and September.”

Below is the full statement

The Ministry of Sanitation and Water Resources and the Ghana Water Company Limited wishes to inform the General Public, that the Presidents directive on the free water services for domestic consumption, will continue for the next three months as stipulated in the Mid-Year Budget announced to the public on 23rd of July, 2020, thus, the Government of Ghana will be absorbing domestic water bills of citizens again, from July, through August and end in September, 2020. This directive is to support Ghanaians and to help curb the COVID-19 pandemic. Management wishes to inform the general public that the implementation of the President’s directive is in progress since the period of implementation takes effect with July consumption.

Hence:

All Domestic customers of the Ghana Water Company Limited (GWCL) on category 611 shall have their bills from July, August and September 2020, absorbed and paid by Government.All metered stand-pipes on category 643 shall be used to serve citizens for free. Vendors are expected to still control the services to the public as usual. This is to ensure the prudent use of water.Landlords and landladies who sell water to tenants must allow tenants to use the water for free from July, August and September.The Public, including Opinion Leaders, and our cherished customers must with the greatest respect, desist from mounting standpipes, or connecting water in any way without recourse to the Ghana Water Company Limited. It is wrong and illegal for anybody to connect water to any property without reference to the GWCL.  Anyone who flouts this directive, contravenes the law; the Public Utilities (Termination of Services) Regulations 1999, LI 1651 and it’s likely to face the full rigours of the law. All customers disconnected prior to the President’s announcement in April, are still liable, and must pay their arrears to enable them enjoy the free water. Customers in arrears must negotiate with the District Offices and or Regional Offices for flexible terms of payment to enable them settle their arrears, then they can be reconnected to enable them enjoy the free water services. These cases will be treated on individual bases.Water supply Tankers and Covid Free WataTank services are still in operations to serve deprived communities.  Consumers in such communities must liaise with the Assembly members, who will request for the services of these tankers from our district offices.The Management of GWCL entreats customers to repair all leakages in their homes, including overflowing reservoirs and dripping taps, valves, etc. Citizens must also do well to report all burst pipes and leakages immediately to the nearest GWCL district offices, Customer Service centres, Fault Offices to enable staff of GWCL attend to them as early as practicable to avoid waste. All Ghanaians are being reminded that, it is the collective responsibility of all to report all persons engaged in illegal connections, by-passes, and all malpractices against GWCL to the nearest Police station or to the district offices.

The general public can also call or whatsapp GWCL on these numbers; 0555123393, 0555155524, 0207385088, 0207385089, 0207385090. You can include google locations, pictures and videos of the burst. The toll free line for the customer call center is 0800 40 000 for Vodafone cell and land lines only and 0302 218240 for all other networks.

Help GWCL to serve you better.

The cooperation of the general public is greatly appreciated.

EC Boss Reveals How Some Names Got Omitted From The Voters’ Register

Published

on


Electoral Commission chair, Mrs Jean Mensah has explained how some names were omitted from the current voters register.

Addressing the press Monday, September 28, 2020, Mrs Jean Mensah said a process to export the information of registered voters onto secured storage is to blame for the missing names in the register.

“Registration of voters is done using Biometric Registration Devices at the Polling Stations. Thereafter, the data is then transmitted to the data centre where it undergoes the process of de-duplication by the Automatic Biometric Identification System (ABIS).

“In other words, the data is exported for secure storage and further analysis. The provisional register is then produced. In a few instances, the process of exportation of data from the USB sticks to the central server was faulty leading to shortfalls of data in some areas

“It is important to highlight that although the registration process is IT-driven, there is still a significant amount of human involvement that may result in errors in every step of the process from registration to exhibition. In short, due to unintentional human and administrative errors, the process of exportation of data from the BVD kits to the USB sticks and then to the Central Database was in a few instances faulty leading to shortfalls in some areas. In a nutshell, our technology performed optimally as expected, however, in some areas, the human element of ours fell short leading to some of the gaps in the data we experienced,” she explained

“Ghanaians have waited soo long to get female as a Vice President but thank God we have already gotten somebody and indeed she really deserves it,” he stated.

He urged his people to vote massively for the NDC party to return back to power and complete all stalled projects in the area which was initiated by the erstwhile Mahama administration.

Prof. Naana Jane Opoku Agyeman who visited the area as part of her campaign tour of the Region also called on the constituents to turn up in their numbers and vote for the NDC in the 2020 elections.

Campaign For Us Or Be Expelled – John Boadu Warns Losing NPP Aspirants Wanting To Go Independent

Published

on


The General Secretary of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), John Boadu has said that the party will not tolerate independent candidates in this year’s elections.

The party will revoke the membership of such candidates who decide to go against the party rules to go solo in the 2020 general elections according to him.

Speaking on Okay FM’s ‘Ade Akye Abia’ Show, Mr. Boadu added that the party will also disown them should they even make it to Parliament.

He further appealed to disgruntled candidates to resort to the party’s constitution and other methods akin to the party’s constitution than to go independent which does not help in the development of a party that is seeking re-election.
