Just as the Eko Electricity Distribution Company (EKEDC) has restated its commitment to uninterrupted power supply during the yuletide season and beyond, electricity consumers have been urged to reciprocate and pay their bills promptly.
Mr Godwin Idemudia, the General Manager, Corporate Communications, who made the call on Wednesday, urged consumers to pay their bills promptly to avoid power supply disruptions.
EKEDC’s operational area covers Lagos mainland, island, Ikoyi, Victoria Island, Lekki and Ajah.
Idemudia said the company had put in place measures to ensure uninterrupted power supply within its operational territory during the Yuletide and after.
He said the company was aware of the high expectations of customers to enjoy steady power supply during the festive period.
“EKEDC has put in place measures to ensure that the customers’ hopes are not dashed.
“We want to appeal to consumers under the network that should there be any spark from the pole or fault from transformer, our technical crew is on standby in all our business units.
“Our technical crew will work throughout the holiday to rectify electrical faults so that customers can enjoy the holiday.
“Our customer care lines are working 24/7, so customers should feel free to contact them if there is any electrical fault in their area,” Idemudia said.
The EKEDC’s spokesman, however, warned against vandalism and tampering with equipment in the zone as it could cause deaths or serious injuries.
