The people of Manso Adubia, a town in the Ashanti Region, have been left in shock after the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) disconnected power supply to the residence of the Amansie South District Chief Executive (DCE), Clement Opoku. This follows accusations by the ECG that the DCE connected power to his house illegally without using a meter.

According to reports, the DCE mounted poles and ran power cables through an adjoining plot to his house without any documentation, which the ECG deemed to be unauthorized. The ECG, therefore, took action and disconnected the power to the house and removed the cables.

The Ashanti Regional Director of the ECG, David Boadi Asamoah, led a team from Kumasi to undertake the disconnection exercise. Upon arrival at the residence, they observed that at least four street lights in the walled house were on, which aroused their suspicion that someone was using electricity without paying for it.

After conducting a thorough investigation, the ECG found out that the power was connected from the main pole by running it through someone else’s plot, a move that is deemed illegal. Mr. Asamoah, in an interview, said that ECG will ensure that the DCE pays for all the power he has used without going through the meter.

The actions of the DCE have left the people of Manso Adubia disappointed, as they expected better from their leader. Some residents have expressed their disappointment and anger at the DCE’s actions, saying that he should have known better than to break the law.

This incident should serve as a reminder to all Ghanaians that no one is above the law, and that we should all strive to abide by the rules and regulations that govern our society. The government and all its officials should lead by example and not engage in any form of illegal activities.
