Head, Corporate Affairs AbdulAziz Abdullahi made the remarks when the management of the company paid a courtesy call on the Media Trust Kaduna office. He said Kaduna’s energy needs will be met if KEDCO receives the amount of electricity it requires. He said about 150MW is supplied to the company for onward distribution to its customers, an amount less than the “600MW it requires.” The company said most of its customers including government agencies don’t pay their electricity bills, leading to sharp shortfall in revenue generation.He said the military and police owe the company about N5 billion, adding that officials of the ministries of finance, power and defence were making plans to settle the bills for the military. Mr. Abdullahi said the company is expected to make over N3 billion from its customers monthly but ‘hardly gets N1.2 billion’ which would not be enough to settle its own bills and pay salaries.
