Ibadan Electricity Distribution Company (IBEDC) has appealed to postpaid and prepaid customers to pay their electricity bills and vend for energy.
This appeal was made by the Chief Operating Officer(COO) Engr. John Ayodele, during a virtual chat with the media, were he corroborated the statement of the Minister of Power in the media that there is NO TWO MONTH FREE ELECTRICITY as was highly publicized recently. He further said, without payment of electricity consumed the industry cannot survive the revenue downturn due to non-payment of electricity bills by many customers. At IBEDC the current apathy to payment is not supporting our commitment to provide regular power supply and efficient service delivery to our customers.
We are therefore, imploring our customers to help us sustain this commitment by paying their bills and vending promptly, so we can fulfil our obligations to the Electricity value chain as we will still pay for energy purchased. Also, we have made huge investments in ensuring the regular power supply our customers are enjoying now, provision of Personnel Protective Equipment (PPE) for staff and customers and other technical resources.
In addition, customers for their convenience, can use our hassle-free alternate payments channels like Fetswallet, Quickteller, Jumia, VT Pass, Payarena, your ATM Card or through USSD. Our offices are also open Mondays to Fridays between 9am to 5pm, Saturdays, 9am to 3pm and Sundays 11am to 3pm for customers to pay, vend or pick up their bills, whilst obeying all COVID -19 safety protocols.
