Minority spokesperson on Energy and Member of Parliament for Adansi Asokwa, K.T Hammond, has denied accusations that he owes the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) GHC 30,000 in unpaid bills.

Speaking on Citi Prime News Mr. Hammond said, “there is not a single atom of truth in it. It is simply not true. This sort of thing isn’t going to intimidate K.T Hammond.”

According to the New Patriotic Party (NPP) MP, “I didn’t put the meter there by myself. It was installed by ECG and it has been installed for over 12 years now.”

Mr Hammond told Citi News he had been counselled by his lawyers to pursue a leagl option against the Herald Newspaper.

The Electricity Company of Ghana has meanwhile also denied The Herald Newspaper publication.

Manager of the ECG, Dominic Afesi in an interview said the facts as reported by the newspaper, were misleading.

The Monday edition of the newspaper carried a front page story which claimed that the home of the Minority Spokesperson on Energy has, for years, been illegally connected to the national grid.

According to the Editor of The Herald Newspaper, Larry Alan Dogbey, the publication did not set out to deliberately damage the outspoken MP’s reputation.

“If the facts as presented to us by the ECG official that we spoke to were not exactly the same, we will apologies to K.T Hammond.”
