: Disco denies free supply in Kebbi


The Kaduna Electricity Distribution Company has denied the report of the alleged free supply of power during the Month of Ramadan to consumers in Kebbi State.

Abdulazeez Abdullahi, the Head of Corporate Communication at Kaduna Electric, disclosed this in a statement on Saturday.

Recall that reports alleged that electricity consumers in Kebbi State, one of the franchises of Kaduna Electric, will not pay electricity bills for the period of Ramadan on the basis that the state had cleared the bill.

However, the Disco said the Governor, Nasir Idris, only partially subsidized the differential, which arose from improved power from 6 hours to an average of 12 hours.

He urged electricity consumers in Kebbi state to promptly pay their bills to avoid disconnection.

“It is pertinent to note that the improvement in electricity supply was supposed to lead to a increase for the customers in Birnin Kebbi by the hours enjoyed.

“However, in his kindness, the Governor agreed to partly pay for the differential as a subsidy and support for Ramadan.

“Based on the stated facts, we wish to debunk the insinuations making rounds that the Kebbi state government has paid Kaduna Electric for electricity supply in favour of individual customers during the holy month of Ramadan, and, therefore, customers are not expected to pay for the electricity consumed during the period.

“Our esteemed customers in Kebbi State are expected to promptly pay for the power they consume monthly, as has been the case. The bills for February have been distributed, and customers are expected to pay in full to avoid disconnection”, he stated.
