KEDCO Inaugurates Taskforce For Bills Collection, Metre Bypass

From Maduabuchi Nmeribeh, Kano 

The Management of Kano Electricity Distribution Company (KEDCO) has inaugurated a taskforce to enforce payment of electricity bills and checkmate the ugly trend of metre bypass.

According to a Statement by the Company’s Head of Corporate Communications, Ibrahim Sani Shawai, “the idea was initiated in view of the attitudes of some customers who often refuse to pay their bills after enjoying our services and such act has resulted to some financial challenges for KEDCO.

“The taskforce has been empowered to ensure that current and outstanding bills are collected as this would help KEDCO consolidate on the numerous  reforms to improve power supply.

“The taskforce is also to check issues of meter bypass, illegal connections, energy theft and other forms of sabotage.

“In this regard, anyone found engaging in any forms of sabotage would be dealt with in accordance with the laws of the land.

“We are appealing to all customers to remain vigilant on all our installations while ensuring that their meters are properly protected against vandals.

“We also assure all our customers that our metering initiative which is aimed at ending estimated billing and giving customers the opportunity to pay for what they consume, is still ongoing.”
