The Management of Ibadan Electricity Distribution Company (IBEDC) Plc, has congratulated Nigerians on the celebration of the nation’s 61st Independence anniversary.
The Chief Operating Officer of the Company (COO), Mr John Ayodele, sent the congratulatory message in a statement made available to newsmen on Thursday in Ibadan.
“Every anniversary of Nigeria’s independence is a unique privilege to recommit to the service of this great country with profound diversities and opportunities.
“Building a strong and formidable society is also largely dependent on its economic strength and IBEDC, as a player in the power sector, is avowed and committed to that value.
“The company is dedicated to contributing its quota to Nigeria’s economic strength through excellent service delivery, prompt response to our customers’ complaints and bridging the metering gap across our network.”
Ayodele enjoined Nigerians to be safety conscious and wished the customers a happy Independence Day.
“I plead with our customers and all Nigerians to observe and adhere to all the COVID- 19 safety protocols of hand washing, use of face masks and physical distancing, as recommended by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC).”
He also called for the observation of other safety precautions including proper supervision of children, to prevent electrical accidents.
Similarly, Ayodele cautioned against cooking or trading under the high-tension cable.
The chief operating officer advised consumers against engaging quacks to fix electrical faults.
According to him, IBEDC is committed to ensuring that its customers enjoy uninterrupted services during the holiday, as much as it is within its control.
He, however, urged customers to take advantage of the company’s easy payment platforms – Fetswallet, Quick teller, eTransact, Payarena, ATM, Jumia and USSD, to pay their electricity bills promptly and vending, to ensure uninterrupted power supply.
“Our payment centres are also open during the holiday from 9.00 a.m. to 3.00 p.m., to attend to customers for bill payment, vending, enquiries and complaints.
“Customers can reach us via our Customer care line – 07001239999,” Ayodele said. (NAN)
