Electricity Company, EEDC Threatens to Disconnect Government Houses In South-East, Army, Police Offices Over Debts

The Government Houses in the five South-East states as well as the Nnamdi Azikwe Univerisity, the Nigerian Army, among other key locations may suffer a blackout soon.

This is according to the Enugu Electricity Distribution Company (EEDC) which has threatened to disconnect the electricity supply to the places.

In a disconnection notice, EEDC advised them to clear outstanding bills on or before June 10, 2024.

The notice by the company sighted on Friday reads: “The Enugu Electricity Distribution Company PLC (EEDC) wishes to notify her customers with outstanding electricity bills, that effective from 10th June 2024, the company will commence the disconnection of electricity supply to these indebted customers.

“This exercise has become necessary considering the huge unpaid electricity bills and accrued arrears, which has consistently put the company in a precarious revenue deficit position, making it difficult to meet up with its power purchase obligations.

“For EEDC to continue providing services to its esteemed customers, it is pertinent that electricity bills, which are for energy already consumed, are paid in full.

The company lamented that if the monies owed were not paid, it would be difficult to continue to provide electricity services to its customers.

“Some of the indebted customers include Enugu State government, Ebonyi State government, Anambra State government, Abia State government, the Imo State government, Innoson Technical and Industries, University of Nigeria (Enugu & Nsukka campuses) and the Nigerian Bottling Company Ltd.
