The Management of Kano Electricity Distribution Company (KEDCO) says the company is on the right track to reduce its Aggregate Technical, Commercial, and Collections Losses to 23.5 per cent in 2020.
According to the Management, the company is yet to get over N11billion revenue in its franchise area as a result of the attitude of some customers by not paying their bills or giving part payment.
The company in a statement described this as unhealthy, stressing that it needs all the resources to sustain improvements in the sub-sector to impact greatly on the economy of Kano, Katsina and Jigawa States.
It stated: “For 2020, we projected to cut our ATC&C loss by 23.5 per cent but as it stands now the ATC&C is 49 per cent. However we are working to ensure we meet our ATC&C target of 23.5 per cent by December, 2020”
“To achieve that target, we shall focus our attention on transformer metering, repairs of faulty transformers, properly aligning our PPM to feeders as well as ensuring 100 per cent bills distribution and collection”
In his message, Dr Jamil Isyaku Gwamna, the Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, KEDCO charged customers to continue to pay their bills on time while avoiding part payments.
Gwamna further appealed to customers in Kano, Katsina and Jigawa States to support KEDCO by reporting suspected cases of sabotage to security personnel or any KEDCO offices.
He added ” the success of KEDCO means the satisfaction of customers across board, hence we are calling on all our customers to partner with KEDCO to ensure we succeed in our quest to build a better and improved service delivery package for customers.”
