The Management of Kano Electricity Distribution Company (KEDCO) says the company has invested N8.1 billion on network reinforcement, metering and improving work environment across its franchise within the last seven years of its existence.
According to the company’s management in a statement, the power distribution sub-sector and the power sector generally cannot truly witness real improvement except there is massive investment in the sub-sector and it is in recognition of this that we embarked on such investments.
This investment also covers ensuring good working environment as well as improvement in staff’s welfare and other corporate social responsibility done in host communities to ensure good and cordial relations between KEDCO and its grassroots partners.
The major concern of our investment so far is to build and keep building our capacity through the deployment of modern facilities as well as expertise to respond to the demands of our customers as well as give them value for money which remain one of our core mandates.
According to Dr Jamil Isyaku Gwamna, the Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, KEDCO, “electricity distribution networks are capital intensive and timely investments are crucial for future reliability of our services.
“As a customer-centric organisation we are working to improve our services through massive investment in networks and welfare of staff so that we are better prepared for the future.”
