Eko Electricity Distribution Company (EKEDC) has stepped up its collection efficiency with the unveiling of ‘IRecharge’, a payment platform, to ease payment of electricity bills by customers.

Speaking during the unveiling ceremony in Lagos on Thursday, the Disco’s Managing Director, Dr. (Mrs) Tinuade Sanda, said the payment solution was done in collaboration with IRecharge Tech-Innovations.

Sanda said: “As deeply ingrained in our mission statement, we seek to improve the quality of life for all our customers by utilising cutting-edge technology and innovative processes to supply electricity sustainably, reliably, and safely. As a result, what is happening here today is a testament to that notion. I am excited about this payment solution by IRecharge. It will further ensure both our postpaid and prepaid customers go through a seamless process of paying their electricity bills and purchasing their prepaid meter tokens without any hassles.

“The new service enables customers to make their frequent utility bill payments through the use of a unique NUBAN account number. While Eko Disco is making great efforts toward the availability of adequate power supply to customers, we must also secure our revenue by ensuring customers find it easy to pay their electricity bills.”
