The government’s payment of water bills for all Ghanaians because of the COVID-19 pandemic has ended today [June 30], after the planned three-month period.
As part of measures to mitigate the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo in April announced that the government would absorb the water bills for all Ghanaians for the months of April, May and June.
A press statement dated June 29, 2020, signed and issued by the Communications Manager of the Ghana Water Company Limited (GWCL), Mr Stanley Martey said the “free water” intervention would come to an end in June.
Therefore, it said water vendors could resume their normal business after the last meter readings in June.
It added that disconnected customers who were reconnected to enable them enjoy the free water during the period, must as a matter of urgency pay their arrears to remain connected.
“Customers of GWCL must please note, that from hence, the payment of water bills will be the responsibility of the customer,” the statement added.
