The management of Eko Electricity Distribution Company (EKEDC) has promised to roll out a 72-hour mobile metering exercise for its customers in Badagry and Agbara communities on September 1.
Dr Tinuade Sanda, the Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer, EKEDC, revealed this during the company’s Customers Consultative Forum, in Badagry and Agbara, on Friday in Lagos.
Chief Commercial Officer, Rekhiat Momoh, who represented Sanda said the exercise is targeted at providing opportunities to those that are having challenges with estimated billing.
“From the first week, our staff will be at the district office in Agbara, welcoming issues on metering, and any customer that wants to get the meter will first register online.
“Then, our staff, who will be on the ground, will follow them to their houses to know if the building will use one or three phase meters.
“Such customer will then pay N63,061:32 for one phase or N117,910 for three-phase meters.
“This is done under the Meter Asset Provider (MAP) scheme, and they will get their prepaid meters within 72 hours,” she assured.
According to her, the initiative is to support the existing online process of acquiring prepaid meters by customers under the MAP scheme.
“We have done this scheme successfully in Festac and Ibeju Lekki, by the grace of God, Agbara district will start in the first week of September”, she said
Speaking on the motive behind the scheme, Sanda said they had come around to listen to their customers’ complaints.
She said that they also came to tell them what the company was doing to improve the electricity supply.
“We are trying to let them know what to do when they have crazy or estimated bills.
“The essence of the forum is to show that the customers are satisfied with our service and for those that have challenges, we will find solutions to them,” she said.
The Chief Technical Manager, EKEDC, Femi Olaoye said it was the responsibility of the company to repair faulty transformers, urging them to always report any abnormality to the nearest office.
Olaoye said the company had just released 13 transformers to customers who requested for them in some communities within its network.
He urged customers within the network not to contribute money on their own for the repair of transformers.
Meanwhile, some customers within Agbara and Badagry communities complained over lack of power supply, estimated billings and transformers overloading.
Alhaji Remi Agboola, the Chairman, Unity Forum Community, in Oko-Afo said they were having a low current, due to a fault from the transformer for close to six months.
Agboola said they had written to the Agbara district office and Marina office, but the company had not resolved the fault.
