The Parliament of Ghana on Thursday operated without electricity from the national grid following a disconnection carried out by the Electricity Company of Ghana.

ECG carried out the disconnection when the House was debating the State of the Nation Address delivered by the President on Tuesday, February 27, 2024. Following the disconnection, the offices of the Members of Parliament at the Job 600 building has been without light but the main chamber had light from the generators at the facility.

The development caused some individuals trapped in the elevator and it took the intervention of some security persons to get them out. Parliament is said to be hugely indebted to the power distributor, ECG and that resulted in the power cut.
