The Ghana Water Company Limited (GWCL) is reminding Ghanaians of the sudden end of the free supply of water which was initiated by the government as part of measures to curb the spread of COVID-19 today.
President Akufo-Addo in March announced a three-month free supply of water to all Ghanaians which was to cover the months of April, May and June.
For that reason, the GWCL in a statement is reminding all Ghanaians to expect to start paying for their water supply after June the 30th.
Part of the statement read:
“The month of June marks the end of the Governments 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 Minister of Sanitation and Water Resources, and the Management of Ghana Water Company Limited (GWCL) therefore wishes to inform consumers and the general public that the last day of June 2020, officially ends the free water delivery.”

Volta EC issues 72,000 new voter cards in three days
The Volta Regional Directorate of the Electoral Commission has issued a total of 72, 257 new voter cards to citizens after three days of registration, which started on June, 30.
The third day had 27,832 people being issued with cards with the second and first days recording 24,912 and 19,513 respectively.
Mr Dogbey Adukpo Selormey, Volta Regional Director of the Electoral Commission, said this in an interview with the Ghana News Agency.
He said the daily activities at each centre from the districts and regional offices are uploaded to the national data centre, which makes it possible to know the figures accordingly.
He said the increasing daily output means there is positive action on the ground adding that if this momentum is maintained the exercise would be deemed to be successful.
“I am exceptionally grateful to the people for the peaceful nature of the exercise in the region. I commend the people for their buy-in, which should be applauded,” he said.
He said apart from a few registration centres, who reported malfunctioning Biometric Voter Registration (BVR) kits on the first day of the exercise, the situation has improved drastically, as its technical officers are at arm’s length to address all challenges.
Mr Selormey said Hohoe Municipal had a shortage of a BVR machine resulting from a breakdown but promised the lost days would be accounted and appealed to the residents to stay calm.
