“As part of measures to mitigate the effect of the pandemic on the social and economic life of the country, as I indicated in my last speech, the government sorted water bills for all Ghanaians for three months i.e. April, May and June. Furthermore, water tankers public and privately owned are mobilised to ensure the supply of water to vulnerable communities.

“We have decided on further measures on mitigation for all Ghanaians for the next three months .i.e April, May and June. Government will fully absorb electricity bills for the poorest of the poor .i.e. for all lifeline consumers. Free electricity for persons who consume 0-50 Kilowatt per hour a month for this period. In addition, for all other consumers, residential and commercial, government will absorb 50percent of the electricity bill for this period using your March 2020 bill as your benchmarks. For example, if your electricity bills was Ghc100, you will pay only Ghc50 with government absorbing the remaining Ghc50,” he stated.

President Akufo-Addo has also extended the two-week partial lockdown to another one week.
