The Kano Electricity Distribution Company (KEDCO) has appealed to its customers in Kano, Katsina and Jigawa States to pay up outstanding and current bills amounting to over N8 billion from January 2020 till date.
According to a statement signed by KEDCO’S Head of Corporate Communications, Mr. Ibrahim Sani Shawai, the appeal has become necessary in view of the huge financial obligation that KEDCO needs to comply with to ensure that the system runs smoothly without any hindrances in terms of finance.
Ibrahim Shawai added that, “this business of power sector is a chain reaction that needs all partners to meet their obligation for others to meet theirs; hence we are appealing to our customers to help us help them and our other partners.
“Our customers have attested to the fact that there have been tremendous improvement in power supply in our franchise states and we hope to continue with that improvement to further give them satisfaction and value for their money in line with our customer-first priority.”
He pointed out that, “this is being threatened by the huge amount of outstanding and current bills which are making it difficult for KEDCO to fulfill its financial obligations to its numerous partners who generate and transmit power to it.”
