20 January 2017, Lagos – The Head, IBEDC Media Communications, Mrs Angela Olanrewaju, in a statement in Lagos said that it only distributed the quantum of energy allocated to it by the Transmission Company of Nigeria.
“The distribution companies supply power to customers based on energy allocated to them by TCN.
“It is wrong for TCN to blame distribution companies over poor power supply to customers.”
The IBEDC Deputy Managing Director, Mr. John Ayodele, said that TCN, being the middle-man of the value chain, has not been distributing power when and to where it was needed.
According to him, the frequency of interruptions, sometimes more than 10 times in 24 hours, has made a number of our premium customers to resort to self-generation.
He said, “We will continue to appeal to TCN for better and reliable power supply to enable us to retain our premium customers who are beginning to seek alternative power sources.
“We will continue to improve and upgrade our infrastructure for power supply delivery to all our esteemed customers in the face of all the obstacles in the sector.”
He said that IBEDC was also hampered by avalanche of transmission limitations which vary from region to region.
