This was contained in two separate statements signed on Wednesday by the Assistant General Manager, Public Affairs, Ikeja Disco, Mr. Pekun Adeyanju and the Principal Manager, Public Affairs, Ibadan Disco, Mr. Tokunbo Peters.

The management of the Ikeja Electricity Distribution Company, in the statement, urged electricity customers within the network of the company in Abule-Egba, Akowonjo, Ikeja, Ikotun, Ikorodu, Ipaja, Odogunyan, Ogba, Ojodu, Oshodi and Shomolu Business Units to allow genuine workers to continue to operate but warned to be wary of impostors.

“Also, customers are enjoined not to pay money to any official of the company, but pay their bills directly to designated offices of the company or through already established payment solution systems.  Electrical faults are also to be reported at the company’s offices close to the customers for prompt rectification,” the statement said.

The Chairman, Ikeja Disco, Mr. Kola Adesina, asked for the patience and support of the customers.

He also told customers in its network that the transaction which resulted in the handover of the Disco on November 1, 2013, didn’t in any way signify a shutdown of its operations.

Similarly, the Ibadan Electricity Distribution Company, whose network cuts across Kwara, Ogun, Osun and Oyo states and parts of Ekiti, Kogi and Niger, said one of the key objectives of the management and investors was to provide customers with adequate, stable power supply and dramatic new customer experience.

“We need the support and cooperation of the customers to be able to achieve this objective. Thus, all customers in the network of IBEDC spread across Ogun, Oyo, Osun and Kwara states are enjoined to pay their electricity bills promptly and regularly at designated cash offices, banks or through the use of electricity scratch cards. Under no circumstances must physical cash be given to our marketers or any individual employee,” the statement said.
