Kano DisCo Decries Incessant Poor Power Allocation


By Ibrahim Shuaibu

Kano Electricity Distribution Plc (KEDCO) has lamented the continuous poor power allocation to its network from the National Control Centre (NCC) Oshogbo, as well as the meagre load allocation for customers in its franchise area by the Area Control Centre (ACC) Kumbotso in Kano.

The company’s spokesperson, Mohammed Kandi said in a statement made available to THISDAY in Kano on Wednesday, “The abysmal energy allocation to Kano DisCo in recent times is impacting negatively not only on our revenue generation but (also) our desire to maintain customer intimacy in business.”

Kandi, who said that the company could no longer understand why it is always asked to maintain the lowermost energy from the scanty allocation given to it, noted that it was not in the best interest of the company to have its customers experience days of constant power outages.
He said: “The past few months have been very challenging for our company, especially in terms of the total blackout that our customers have been facing, as well as the difficulty our staff encounter during collections.”
