Ikeja electricity distribution coy still operating

07 November 2013, 12:33

Lagos - The Ikeja Electricity Distribution Company says that it has not shut its operations.

The company made the clarification in Lagos on Wednesday via a statement issued by its Assistant General Manager (Public Affairs), Pekun Adeyanju.

The statement said that the transaction, which led to the hand-over of the company to a new management team, did not in any way signify a shutdown of operations.

“The company is alive, its posture and that of the Nigerian people is to develop the power sector and make it healthy, viable and beneficial to the customers and the country at large,” it said.

The statement, however, urged electricity consumers to pay their bills on time, while protecting the electricity infrastructure and conserving electricity by switching off appliances that were not in use.

It warned that customers should not to pay their bills to any official of the company; adding that they should pay directly to designated offices of the company or through established payment systems.

The statement also urged the customers to report electrical faults at the company’s offices for prompt rectification.
