Due to the economic hardship caused by COVID-19, the Ghanaian government has extended free electricity to poor citizens until January 2021.
This announcement was made last week Thursday by the Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta.
Ken noted that all citizens irrespective of social status would enjoy free water supply for the next three months.
The period for free water, which ended in May 2020, would be extended for an additional three months while electricity would last for the next six months.
While the free electricity would be enjoyed by lifeline consumers that consume less than 50kWh per month, water would be given to all citizens for free for the next three months.
