KEDCO urges customers to settle electricity bills

10 September 2014, 19:06

Kano - The Kano Electricity Distribution Company (KEDCO) on Wednesday called on its customers to ensure prompt payment of their electricity bills.

Alhaji Muktar Baffa, the Assistant General Manager of the company, made the call during interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Kano.

He said the call became necessary in view of the tremendous improvement recorded in power supply in Kano Zone.

Baffa told NAN that the zone was now getting more than 200 megawatts as against the 120 megawatts it was receiving in the past.

"Power supply has improved tremendously but yet many customers are still reluctant to pay their bills."

"The customers’ response is very low and this will not help matters’’, Baffa said.

He expressed the hope that electricity consumers in the zone would change their attitude towards payment of bills to enable the company to serve them better.

According to him, the 200 megawatts being given to the zone is shared among Kano, Katsina, Jigawa and some parts of Bauchi state and Gazou town in Niger Republic.

On the plan by the company to import pre-payment meters from China for distribution to customers, Baffa said the plan was still on course.

He said they would be distributed to customers as soon as the equipment arrived.

KEDCO is serving Kano, Katsina, Jigawa and some parts of Bauchi state.
