The Kano Electricity Distribution Company, KEDCO, on Tuesday inaugurated 170 transformers and 60 operational vehicles to boost power supply in Kano, Katsina and Jigawa States.
DAILY NIGERIAN reports that the operational equipment procured include 500KVA11, 500KVA 33, 300KVA11 and 300KVA33 transformers, cars, buses, ambulances and, ladders.
While inaugurating the equipment, the Managing Director of the company, Jamilu Gwamna, said the gesture was to boost power supply and achieve quality service delivery to its customers.
According to him, KEDCO is determined to meet its obligation of ensuring regular power distribution to its customers, hoping that the subscribers would also reciprocate the gesture.
He declared that the era of crazy billing is over as the company would soon launch metering scheme.
Mr Gwanma, therefore, called on customers to seize the opportunity to register during the registration exercise which would soon commence.
He said: “We are improving gradually despite the fact that we have not reached where we want to be in power distribution in Nigeria.
“I assure you that in the next two years, KEDCO is going to be the best power distribution company in the country,” the MD declared.
Mr Gwamna, however, disclosed that since its inception in the last five years, the company was running at a loss as none of its shareholders had been able to get their dividends.
