Emir of Kontagora praises AEDC for improved power supply – The Sun Nigeria

The Emir of Kontagora, Alhaji Barau Mu’azu 11, has commended the management of Abuja Electricity Distribution Company (AEDC) for the improved power supply in the region.

Muazu II was speaking at his palace on Friday when Alhaji Mahamud Keni, Niger Regional Director, AEDC, paid him a courtesy visit.

The emir said the improved supply has strengthened small businesses in the emirate.

“We will mobilize our people to ensure timely payment of electricity bills for efficient service delivery,” he said.

He said he has since directed districts and neighborhoods to sensitive residents on the need to protect electrical installations and ensure timely payment of electricity bills.

“We will reach out to consumers to do everything possible to protect all facilities against vandalism for a constant power supply,” Mu’azu II pledged.

The Emir urged consumers to report any form of vandalism of company properties and to refrain from any illegal logins.

According to him, “it is the duty of local residents, who regularly pay their bills, to help the company monitor illegal connections and report them to the relevant authority.

“If residents alert the company to illegal power connections, it will further sanitize the system and improve service delivery.

“We will continue to educate our employees to assist your business in this direction to ensure 24-hour uninterrupted power supply for further socio-economic development of our region.”

Speaking earlier, Keni congratulated the emir on “his well-deserved appointment” and prayed to Allah to guide him in managing the affairs of the emirate.

He informed the Emir that the AEDC has highlighted many challenges facing electricity supply in the state and has come up with strategies to address them to ensure uninterrupted power supply.

“We have successfully replaced all of the damaged facilities responsible for the epileptic power supply experienced in all areas of our state.

“We are seeking the support of the Royal Father to help mobilize consumers on the need to pay for electricity and prevent vandalism of our equipment for further improvement in service delivery,” he said. (NOPE)
