The government will on February 18, 2020 launch an ECG Mobile App which will enable customers of the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) to buy prepaid credit electronically using mobile devices directly without having to visit sales points.
The Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, announced this at a Town Hall Meeting in Kumasi Tuesday, February 11, 2020. He said the mobile app is to offer an added layer of convenience to help reduce the stress that prepaid customers go through in recharging their units.
“You can buy units for others as well,” he said, adding that “now people will be calling you to buy credit for them.”
Dr. Bawumia said the government’s digitization agenda is to help to do away with all inefficiencies and corruption in the system.
