The Abuja Electricity Distribution Company (AEDC) has cried out that the huge debt of over N770 million owed by the Niger State government and other private consumers in the state is capable of crippling the activities of the company, THISDAY reports.
The AEDC Director, Risk and Compliance, Mr Collins Chabuka, said the organisation was already feeling the negative effect of the debt and therefore solicited the support of traditional rulers in the state for the recovery of the debt.
Chabuka, who was addressing a sensitisation programme in Minna on Thursday, said: “Niger State consumers are our highest debtors, they have to do something to reduce it for us to serve the state better. The electricity we supply we have to buy it, without money we cannot do so.”
