Electricity distribution company disconnects Niger state House of Assembly complex and other govt offices over N1.9 billion debt

The Abuja Electricity Distribution Company (AEDC) has begun the disconnection of government offices in Niger State over a debt amounting to N1.9 billion.

In an exercise carried during the Easter holiday, the AEDC workers disconnected the state’s House of Assembly complex, Office of the Secretary to the State Government, and water board among others.

Most of the offices affected were powered by generators when they resumed for work on Tuesday, April 19.

A memo issued on Friday by the AEDC regional manager in Minna said the debt spanned over eight years and vowed not to reconnect the offices until they were cleared. The statement noted that the immediate past administration left 343m debt, adding that from June 2015 to date, govt accrued a total debt of N1.9 billion.

It stated that efforts made to recover the debt have been frustrating so far.
