The Eko Electricity Distribution Company (EKEDC) has suspended the new tariff and  reverted to the old tariff effective from September 28, 2020.

This is in response to the bilateral agreement reached between the Organized Labour Unions and the Federal Government and in line with  directive of the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) to Distribution Companies to suspend the newly implemented Service Reflective Tariff SRT.

This was disclosed in a statement signed by the General Manager, Corporate Communications of the Company, Godwin Idemudia who said the Company has fully complied with the directive and have reverted to the old tariff for the said two-week window pending further directive by the Electricity Industry regulator.

He noted that “our prepaid customers who purchase electricity tokens from 28th September will now have the value of their purchases reflecting the old tariff in their tokens while our postpaid customers will see the old tariff reflected in their October bill”.

Idemudia urged customers to go ahead with their previous month bill settlements while we await the decision of the Federal Government on the next line of action.

The DisCo also congratulated Nigerians at 60th independence celebration.

It described the independence anniversary as a great milestone which is worthy of celebrating as individuals and as a nation.

Idemudia mentioned that while this year’s celebration is coming amid the COVID-19 Pandemic, “the celebration is a reminder of our collective strength and resilience as a united Country to overcome challenges and adversity.”

“As we celebrate our togetherness as a country, we must all renew our commitments to National objectives as we consolidate on the dream, ideals and aspiration of our founding fathers.” he said.

Idemudia admonished customers to work with the Company as we are constantly implementing initiatives that will ensure safe and reliable electricity to all consumers within its network.
