AEDC lacks facilities to provide electricity to consumers –Niger govt 


Niger State government has said that since the unbundling of the Power Holding Company of Nigeria (PHCN) it has contributed towards ensuring that the Abuja Electricity Distribution Company (AEDC) survive, especially by supporting them with transformers and service lines to guarantee service delivery.

The state government took the step to end some of the challenges facing the AEDC and other distribution companies lacking relevant equipment and other facilities needed to provide electricity to consumers in urban areas and rural communities across the state and other parts of the country.

Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Alhaji Ibrahim Ahmed Matane, disclosed this to journalists on the displeasure of the Governor Abubarkar Sani Bello-led administration over the disconnection of his office, state secretariat and the state water board by the AEDC.

As a responsive and responsible government, Ibrahim Matane at the press conference in his office, said that supporting the AEDC with facilities worth over N3 billion in the past six years was aimed at encouraging private sector businesses thrive in the state.
