Ghanaians are expected to resume paying for their own water bills from next month as the president’s directive for a three months free water initiative expires at the end of June.
The Ghana Water Company Limited has in a press release notified the public to this effect.
“The month of June marks the end of the government’s directive to the Ghana Water Company Limited to serve Ghanaians with water for free, as part of measures to curb the rapid spread of the Covid-19 pandemic.
“Customers of GWCL must please note, that from hence, the payment of water bills will be the responsibility of the customer,” the statement read.
It further added, “the Minister of Sanitation and Water Resources, and the Management of Ghana Water Company Limited (GWCL) therefore wish to inform consumers and the general public that the last day of June 2020, officially ends the free water delivery.”
President Akuffo Addo as part of measures to mitigate the impact of the Coronavirus granted a three months water bill relief which started in April and ends in June.
