The analysis of the financial status of KEDCO shows that between January and July, 2019, the company’s uncollected electricity bills from customers, is put at N10.35 billion.
This is not favourable for market and business especially for a distribution company like ours that keeps giving all just for the satisfaction of its existing and increasing customers in Kano, Katsina and Jigawa States.
We are out for massive campaign in that regard to bring all those customers who are yet to pay their outstanding electricity bills to be on the same page as us because we need them in our quest to satisfy everyone.
This is to let out numerous customers know that the payment of the over N10 billion outstanding bills will go a long way in improving the power supply to communities across board within our franchise areas.
Dr. Jamilu Isyaku Gwamna, the MD has charged all staff to embark on aggressive drive to cut down this huge uncollected bills
Gwamna said: “If power improves, there is no doubt that economic activities within these states will be calibrated for greatness and in that lies our ultimate goal.
“Power has remained a major factor for triggering developments in all sectors and reawakening all business activities which will in turn create jobs for youths. KEDCO believes strongly in not just serving as a distribution company but creating a developmental part to boost the economy of Northern Nigeria.
“We hold our customers in high esteem and trust and it is in that light that we strive to bring satisfaction to them as far as power distribution is concerned in Kano, Katsina and Jigawa States.
We also wish that our customers should return the favours by settling their outstanding bills as partners in progress.
“We are ready to address all issues emanating or that may emanate from power supply in the state as long as our customers will continue to assist us by settling all outstanding bills that may stand as financial constraint to meeting our obligations to various stakeholders. We are committed and we will remain so to ensure a sustained revolution in the power sector.”
