The Abuja Electricity Distribution Company (AEDC) has stated that it has deployed Meter-on-Wheels and mobile MAP initiatives to allow customers purchase meters instantly without waiting for months.
The DisCo also blamed poor power supply to its franchise states on the bad infrastructures it inherited when it took over operations.
Donald Etim, chief marketing officer of AEDC, while speaking at a town hall meeting with electricity consumers in the Lugbe axis of Abuja, said that with these initiatives, customers can now pay for meters and have them installed within 24 hours unlike what was obtainable before now.
Etim, who was represented by the head, Channels Engagement/ CSR, Usman Danjuma, assured customers that while AEDC will strive to improve power supply to the area, they customers should fulfill their end of the bargain by ensuring prompt payment for their bills.
Elesa Yakubu, head of operations and lines, also speaking, said when the company came on board, it had to contend with bad transformers and load shedding in the franchise states, thus, the difficulty to give customers optimum service delivery.
Yakubu, while saying the low power supply experienced in the first half of the year was a national issue, added that the situation had improved as government is now giving it more power load to distribute to customers.
