The Municipal Chief Executive for Yilo Krobo in the Eastern Region, Eric Tetteh says he will on Monday, August 8 petition the management and board of the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) over the current impasse between ECG and his community.
Hundreds of residents in the Yilo and Lower Manya Krobo municipalities have been left without power for over a week due to safety concerns raised by the ECG and the alleged tampering of its transformers.
Business operators and final-year students in the two communities are currently bearing the brunt of the ongoing impasse.
Speaking to Citi News, the MCE says the only option available to him is to officially petition the board of ECG.
Unconfirmed reports suggest that there were gunshots targeted at workers of ECG who were in the community to disconnect power from the main transformer which was serving a number of illegally connected homes.
