John Mahama Pays His Own Electricity Bills - ECG MD Discloses

Managing Director of the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG), Samuel Dubik Mahama, verified in an interview on peace fm that former President John Dramani Mahama pays electricity bills by himself.

Loyalists of the New Patriotic Party attacked Mr Mahama in September 2022 after he disclosed that he pays all his bills, including electricity and water.

According to former John Mahama, he only gets his monthly pension, like President Kufuor and President Rawlings received before he died. That is all I get, he stated.

In an interview with a TV3 host, the former president said :

“I pay the electricity bill for my house and office; I pay the water bill for my house and office. I live in my own accommodation, so the State does not pay me anything for accommodation,” Mr Mahama said in an interview with TV3.

However, the boss of ECG has affirmed that the John Dramani Mahama comments are accurate, counting that the mistake was from his office and actions are being implemented to correct the irregularity.

“We collate the bills of the former Presidents and take them to the Chief of Staff to pay. Former President Kufour’s bills were with us. We’ve given them to the Chief of Staff, and she has worked on them. We also had former President John Mahama’s own… We contacted him and realized he had already been paying his bills. 

So moving forward, we will discuss with him so that his bills will be absorbed,” he said. Mr Dubik Mahama added that the mistake is “from my office…we have now put structures in place after a very comprehensive conversation with the Chief of Staff. She told us her peace of mind and exactly what we must do. If we were doing our work well, this would not have happened in the first place”.
