Abuja Electricity Distribution Company Issues 72-Hour Payment Ultimatum

The Abuja Electricity Distribution Company (AEDC) has issued a stern warning to customers with outstanding bills, stating that failure to settle their debt within 72 hours will result in electricity disconnection. Victor Ojelabi, the acting Managing Director of AEDC, emphasized the importance of timely payments in ensuring the continuous operation and improvement of the company’s infrastructure.

In a statement released on Friday, Ojelabi announced that the deadline for settling all outstanding payments is Monday, June 3, 2024. He underscored the significance of adhering to payment deadlines, stating that customers who fail to settle their bills within the specified timeframe will face service disconnection.

While reaffirming AEDC’s commitment to providing efficient and reliable service, Ojelabi stressed that this can only be achieved through prompt payment of electricity bills. Customers with outstanding bills are urged to settle their accounts immediately to avoid service disruption.

Meanwhile, in a separate development, the World Bank has approved a $500 million loan to support electricity Distribution Companies (DisCos) under the leadership of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s government. The loan aims to address financial challenges faced by the distribution segment, with a focus on critical infrastructure investment, reducing losses, improving power supply reliability, achieving financial sustainability, and enhancing transparency and accountability in the power sector.
