Kano Electricity Distribution Company (KEDCO) says that the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) has restored the two feeders that were before disconnected which led to a power outage in some area over the weeks.
This was contained in a statement issued and forwarded to Solacebase on Wednesday by Head, Corporate Communication of KEDCO Ibrahim Sani Shawai.
Solacebase recalled that the suspension of KEDCO from the electricity market by TCN since July has led to a power outage in some areas. The franchise areas which KEDCO supplies electricity to include Kano, Katsina and Jigawa states.
The statement said the restoration of disconnected feeders by the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) is a big boost as it will improved power supply in KEDCO franchise areas.
KEDCO, in the statement, assured its numerous customers of effective service delivery across the board following a rejig of the complaint section and restructuring of its ability to deliver in record time.
”The need to give customers satisfaction is a priority policy of KEDCO that can’t be negotiated or compromised. Our customers should be rest assured that we are ever ready to deliver effective service and improved power package while minimizing complaints, ‘’said the statement.”
KEDCO also thanked all its numerous customers for their patience while the disconnection lasted. We are proud of our customers and wish to reiterate that they would get a better supply from now.
KEDCO appealed to TCN to as a matter of urgency look into the issue of the 150MVA Kumbotso -Dan’agundi transformer, which stopped working 5 years ago to be replaced as that will go a long way in helping KEDCO deliver on its mandate toward using improved power supply to trigger the industrialization of Northern Nigeria to improve the economy of Kano, Katsina, and the Jigawa States.
