We Will Not Disconnect Any Power Supply During This Lockdown – IBEDC Assures Ibadan Residents


The Ibadan Electricity Distribution Company Plc (IBEDC) says there will be no disconnection of electricity to non-paying customers during this period of lockdown in Coronavirus pandemic.

Its Chief Operating Officer, Mr John Ayodele made this known in a statement issued in Lagos on Friday.

According to him, this is in recognition of the current precarious and tense situation pervading the country and the whole world occasioned by the coronavirus pandemic.

“IBEDC is a customers cent Ric organisation, with the welfare and wellbeing of its customers at heart.

“Therefore, management has decided to suspend the disconnection of non-paying customers to help alleviate the hardship and pressure Nigerians are facing as a result of the various lockdown across our franchise.

“Furthermore, as much as it is within our remit and control, we will ensure a regular and steady supply of power to make the stay at home order more bearable bearing in mind the attendant challenges and pressure that this pandemic has brought on us,”

He said.
