University of Health and Allied Sciences settles debt with Electricity Company of Ghana
The University of Health and Allied Sciences (UHAS) has demonstrated its commitment to fulfilling its financial obligations by paying off all debts owed to the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG). The institution, located in the Volta Region of Ghana, had an outstanding debt of GH¢1,442,000 at the beginning of the nationwide revenue mobilization exercise.
UHAS has paid GH¢1 million on March 20, 2023, and settled the remaining GH¢442,000 on April 13, 2023, according to the ECG Volta Regional Acting General Manager, Ing. Michael Buabin. The timely payment of the debt by UHAS has been commended by the ECG as a patriotic act that supports the revenue mobilization exercise.
Ing. Buabin called on all customers and institutions to emulate the UHAS example by settling all outstanding debts owed to the ECG. This would enable the ECG to gather enough revenue to sustain the electricity supply chain and complete existing projects while initiating new ones to provide stable power supply.
The Vice Chancellor of UHAS, Prof. Lydia Aziator, highlighted the mutually beneficial relationship between the university and the ECG. She called for a sustained relationship between the two institutions, emphasizing the importance of fulfilling financial obligations to support the provision of essential services.
The prompt payment of UHAS’s debt to the ECG is a positive development that showcases the university’s commitment to financial responsibility and its role in supporting the provision of essential services. This serves as a call to all institutions and individuals to prioritize the payment of bills to support the revenue mobilization exercise and promote sustainable development in Ghana.
