As part of its bid to create an accident-free electricity services atmosphere within its franchise area which comprises the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Kogi, Nasarawa and Niger states, Abuja Electricity Distribution Company (AEDC) Plc looks to commence a phased cleanup of poorly wired communities, beginning with Gishiri Village in the FCT.
The exercise which takes off in Gishiri, will subsequently be extend to Tudun Wada and Dape in Lugbe and Life Camp areas of the Territory, respectively.
A statement by Head of Public Relations and Media of the company, Ahmed Shekarau, further disclosed that the exercise would commence with the strategic removal of substandard electrical poles which would be replaced with standard concrete ones.
The statement noted, however, that the Gishiri network sanitization will lead to intermittent disruption of power supply especially in particular parts of the community where the cleanup operation is being carried out at a given period of time.
Reiterating its commitment to the prevention of potential hazards associated with electricity distribution in its area of operation, the AEDC Management said it was determined to put a stop to all incidents that could lead to injuries or death in the area while it strives to improve service delivery to its customers.
