In line with its determination to create an accident-free electricity
services atmosphere within its franchise area which comprises the
Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Kogi, Nasarawa and Niger states,
Abuja Electricity Distribution Company (AEDC) Plc would commence a
phased cleanup of poorly wired communities, beginning with Gishiri
Village in the FCT.
A press statement issued today by Ahmed Shekarau, Head of Public
Relations and Media of the company disclosed that the cleaning
exercise will begin in Gishiri and subsequently be extend to Tudun
Wada and Dape in Lugbe and Life Camp areas of the Territory, respectively.
The company disclosed further that work in Gishiri would
commence with the strategic removal of substandard electrical poles
which would be replaced with standard concrete ones.
The statement noted, however, that the Gishiri network sanitization
will lead to intermittent disruption of power supply especially in
particular parts of the community where the cleanup operation is being
carried out at a given period of time.
“Against this backdrop, therefore, we are appealing for the patience
and understanding of our affected customers, just as we solicit their
cooperation with members of the teams appointed to carry out this
operation”, the company enthused, even as it assured that the
electricity network refinement is intended to ensure safe delivery of
power to them while also improving the quality of the supply.
Reiterating its commitment to the prevention of potential hazards
associated with electricity distribution in its area of operation, the
AEDC Management said it was determined to put a stop to all incidents
that could lead to injuries or death in the area while it strives to
improve service delivery to its customers.
