Kano Electricity Distribution Company Laments Dwindling Power Allocation

PHCN10The Kano Electricity Distribution Company (KEDCO) has expressed concern over the dwindling power allocation to Kano from the National grid.

The Managing Director of the Company, Alhaji Jamil Gwamna, made the remark while briefing newsmen in Kano on Friday.

Gwamna lamented that the allocation being given to the company was between 30 megawatts and 40 mega watts

According to him, 30 megawatts must always go to the Niger Republic directly and the company would be left with the balance to distribute to its customers in three states.

“The allocation for Kano is very low and the situation is very pathetic.

“If the situation continues the way it is going now, the entire system will collapse”, he said.

He, therefore, called on the customers in Kano, Katsina and Jigawa states to bear with the company as the fault was not its own making.

“We are not responsible for power generation, we only distribute what we are given”, the managing director said. (NAN)
