JED said this at the weekend during a three-day strategy retreat the Management organised for divisional and departmental heads with the regional managers.

Engr. Hashim Ibrahim Bakori, Managing Director, Jos Electricity Distribution also said the company would provide 20 more operational vehicles to enable the field staff to discharge their work more effectively.

The JED Chief explained that 500 additional Maximum Demand metres would be procured and installed for customers before July ending.

Bakori, however, cautioned that on no account should Regional Managers allow the metres to lie fallow.

All meters supplied must be installed for customers at no cost, said he.

The Managing Director, therefore, directed the Regional Managers to ensure that all prepayment metres in their domains were pole-mounted with immediate effect.

In order to ease the work of the field workers, he added, the Management have procured 50 ladders, toolboxes, pliers, led phases testers, operating rods, safety belts, boots, hats and jackets for their usage.

He appealed to customers to reciprocate the quality services being provided by the company by timely payment for their consumed energies.

According to Bakori, the company currently, is going through a lot of difficulties with most customers hugely indebted to the company.
