EKEDC Promises Adequate Power Supply In Ibeju, Ajah

While its customers complain about the insufficient power supply and projected billings, the Eko Electricity Distribution Company (EKEDC) has promised to rectify the situation with electricity supply in its network.

Dr. Tinuade Sanda, the managing director, and chief executive officer of Eko Disco, assured customers that the management was aware of the problems affecting the area’s power supply and had set up a forum to solve them during customer forums held in Ajah and Ibeju.

“On behalf of the MD/CEO of Eko Disco, I would want to acknowledge your support for our company as we cannot be in business without you, our respected customers,” said Sanda, who was represented at the meeting by Chief Finance Officer, Mr. Joseph Esenwa. As our customer service team is on the ground, we have come here today to hear about your challenges and resolve those that we can. Those that we are unable to resolve here will undoubtedly be addressed by our management team in your districts or at the headquarters.

In Ajah and Ibeju, certain customers and representatives of various Community Development Associations (CDAs) discussed the issues influencing the availability of energy in their particular communities. The majority of complaints concerned the insufficient supply of electricity, while others concerned metering, anticipated billing, and safety concerns inside the company’s network.

Ewa appealed to the customers, explaining that while some of the complaints were specific to EKEDC, many of them were caused by problems with the nation’s overall electrical supply.

Regarding the issue of insufficient power supply, the CFO stated that due to poor power generation in recent years, the Disco does not receive its proper allocation of supply from the national grid and handles the insufficient one it receives from the grid.

The CBN loans for Capex projects to TCN and Discos, which would guarantee the purchase and restoration of numerous energy infrastructures to improve power supply in Nigeria, are just one example of the continued efforts to remedy the crisis that he notified the consumers about.

Ewa recommended the clients enroll in the Meter Asset Provider (MAP) program to obtain prepaid meters when it came to metering. Additionally, he announced the start of mobile metering across the company’s network and assured customers that the operation would reach their locations in due course.

The CFO closed by urging customers to continue their support, particularly in the effort to stop energy theft, which is a factor in the high bills that customers are currently receiving. Additionally, he exhorted them to properly tell their communities about this and involve local security networks to deter the criminals, who typically commit the horrible act at night.
