From Rashidat AbdulRahman, Minna

Niger State Governor, Abubakar Bello said ‘enough is enough’ for Abuja Electricity Distribution Company (AEDC) for disconnecting the state’s public infrastructures.

The governor stated this on Tuesday through his deputy, Ahmed Ketso in a meeting with the state Regional Manager of AEDC and officials of government at his office.

The governor said government will no longer tolerate breach of agreement from AEDC in disconnecting its public Infrastructures despite government commitment.

“We will not tolerate disconnecting our social amenities again, enough is enough for AEDC in Niger,’ he said.

The governor also said the present administration has invested over 13 billion naira in infrastructures which includes installation of transformers, supply of poles, cables amongst other for usage by AEDC without asking for refund from the company.

Speaking, the Secretary to the State Government, Ahmed Matane noted that government has remained committed in the agreement reached between AEDC in remitting 100 million naira monthly from the legacy debt.

“I wonder why such unfortunate action from the AEDC after all agreement,” he stated.

Also speaking, the Commissioner of Finance, Usman Tinu said the ministry has released 200 million naira within the last two months and is working to release others according to the agreement.

Responding, the state Regional Manager, AEDC, Mahmud Ndadama noted that the company will take action on reconnecting the affected public Infrastructures immediately after due consultation with their head office at Abuja.
