The Management of Kano Electricity Distribution Company (KEDCO) has appealed to its consumers in Kano, Katsina and Jigawa states, in Nigeria, to settle outstanding and current bills amounting to over N8 billion from January 2020 to date.

Ibrahim Shawai, Head of Corporate Communications at KEDCO, in a statement in Kano Tuesday, June 16, made the appeal.

Agency report quotes Shawai as saying that the appeal becomes necessary in view of the huge financial obligation that KEDCO needed to cope with in order to ensure that its operations run smoothly without hindrance.

The KEDCO Head of Corporate Communications stated: “This business of the 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 support us in helping them and our other partners.

“Our customers have attested to the fact that there have been tremendous improvements 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.”

According to KEDCO, the effort “is being threatened by the huge amount of outstanding and current bills that are making it difficult for the DisCo to fulfil its financial obligations to its partners who generate and transmit power to it.’’
