The Benin Electricity Distribution Company (BEDC) will soon embark on distribution of Prepaid meter to more customers in Akure North and South local government areas of Ondo State.
Reacting to the demonstration against BEDC by residents of Ajayi Elekumo layout, Akure over issue of estimated billing and irregular power supply in the area, the Public Relations Officer of the company in Akure Zone, Mr. Michael Barnabas, in a telephone conversation with Ebony Herald International stated that Prepaid meter distribution in the zone which had started since last year would continue very soon.
He equally promised that the problem of irregular power supply will be seriously looked into by the management.
Barnabas stressed that all residents would definitely get Prepaid meter just as he advised that they should wait for their turn.
“If you are being billed what you think is above your consumption, please come and make your complain in the office instead of making noise. I can assure you that your case would be looked into and all necessary corrections effected”, he added.
