Ebenezer Terlabi said PDS ignored his plea not to disconnect power supply to the people until after resolution of the claim of overbilling, which had been the underlying issue of the misunderstanding. According to him, officials of the power company also refused his suggestion that they should not involve the police in carrying out the disconnection exercise. The residents had claimed that they were overbilled by the PDS and wanted the company to do a reconciliation of the figures. So yesterday and today PDS was not supposed to go to Lower Manya to do any disconnection or collection of bills,” he told News Anchor Bernice Abu Baidoo-Lansa, Thursday.
