Dr. Alexander Ampaabeng, a Fiscal Policy Specialist at Oxfam Ghana added his voice to calls for Government to pay its water bills. He said debts owed to the Ghana Water Company Limited by public agencies raise massive concerns because the efficiency of the company is affected due to the unpaid amounts it needs to improve and expand services.

He pointed out that concerns regarding these debts have become even more crucial in the COVID-19 period since more water is required by households and businesses to stay safe. According to him without adequate funds, the company will not be able to maintain both operations and staff at required levels. He said the expectations of efficiency and reliability from the company should be accompanied by Government paying what it owes the company.
