The exact sum that Parliament owes the electricity distribution firm is unknown.

ECG cut electricity to Terminal 3 of the Kotoka International Airport and other Ghana Airports Company offices on March 14 due to unpaid invoices.

After the KIA failed to pay their due to the power distribution company, the disconnection was carried out.

The disconnection exercise was undertaken after the KIA failed to pay their indebtedness to the power distribution company.

Sources say KIA owes ECG close to GHC49 million.

An attempt by the managment of the KIA to pay the debt by cheque when the disconnection exercise was underway was rejected by the task force.

Power has however been reconnected to the Airport company.
