The Chief Executive Officer of the Consumer Protection Agency, Kofi Kapito, is asking the presidency to pay utility bills for Flagstaff House.
According to him, this will set an example for Ghanaians.
Kofi Kapito was speaking on Eyewitness News in response to President Mahama’s comment that if Ghanaians want consistent power, they must be prepared to pay more.
The consumer protection advocate explained that some students are paying extra charges to get consistent power supply in their schools.
He argued that since students are being forced to pay for electricity, then the presidency must also be compelled to do same.
“So everybody, including the president’s own residency including the Flagstaff House should pay their utility bills. Just as Whitehouse and other advanced countries pay their utilities, I think the time has come, if the president is saying so, then he must set an example,” added Kofi Kapito.
