Alleged Refusal To Energise Transformers: IBEDC Explains


IBADAN,  OYO STATE,  NIGERIA - There are procedures that must be adhered to in energising transformers.

The management of Ibadan Electricity Distribution Company (IBEDC) stated this while clearing the air over allegations of refusal to energise transformers. 

IBEDC through its Head, Branding and Corporate Communications, Angela Olarenwaju, in a statement on Friday,  November 1, 2019, while reacting to a recent publication over alleged refusal by the company to energise donated transformers, said a major procedure is the issuance of a Nigerian Electricity Management Services Agency (NEMSA) certificate, without which no transformer can be energised. 

Angela Olarenwaju said: "Furthermore, the agency issued a circular in June this year as part of their statutory functions, placing embargo on the energisation of 33KV Transformers.

"IBEDC is a customer-centric organisation, poised to keep improving on our service delivery despite the humongous challenges bedeviling the sector. 

"We do not operate outside and or beyond the stipulated procedure for energising transformers, and as a NERC- regulated and compliant company, we are working within these confines to prevent obvious sanctions. 

Angela Olarenwaju therefore urged the communities to follow the due process for a mutually beneficial relationship.
