A Twitter user has ‘owned’ cousin of President Akufo-Addo, Gabby Asare-Otchere Darko over the former’s claim that light bills and water bill have gone down.
Earlier, the Public Utilities and Regulatory Commission (PURC) directed the Ghana Water Company Limited (GWCL) to reduce water tariff by 10.08 percent.
The release issued by the Executive Secretary to the Commission, Mami Dufie Ofori, said GWCL was in breach of Section 11 of the PURC Law (Act 538, 1997).
According to the release, the water company has recently been notified of its non-compliance to tariff decision and regulatory directives in relation to the Teshie Desalination Plant operated by Befesa Desalination Developments Ghana Limited.
Perhaps in reaction to this development Gabby Asare Otchere Darko wrote on Twitter:
“Your water bill is going down. This never once happened in 8 years of NDC. Your electricity bill also went down earlier this year. That also never under 8 years of NDC. Have a good day!”
But a Twitter user with username @EdWinsAlways didn’t take kindly to Gabby’s tweet.
“Your level of thinking is going down as well. This never happened under 8 years of NDC. You are smarter than this Gabby.”
The screenshot of the Twitter troll has gone viral on social media provoking laughter at Gabby.
