By Sadiq Aminu                                                        Niger State Government and the Abuja Electricity Distribution Company, AEDC have come up with an initiative that will improve power supply in the State.

This followed erratic power supply to the State especially the State Capital and a threat by the Government to withdrew it’s services from AEDC to another Distribution company.

Though electricity supply has significantly improved in Minna after the threat, the State and AEDC signed a partnership code named “Light Up Niger ” initiative 2024″

Governor Mohammed Umar Bago made this known when he received the AEDC delegation led by its Chief Operations Officer, Mr Chijioke Okwuokenye at the Government House, Minna.

He explained that the partnership would enable the State maximize the potentials of it’s four hydro dams that contribute about sixty percent of electricity in Nigeria.

He said besides improved power supply, the AEDC is expected to also address metering challenge.

Governor Umar Bago stated that the Electricity Act has been domesticated while the State Electricity Regulatory Commission has been created to enable the State start generating and distributing its own power.

The Chief Operating Officer of AEDC, Mr Chijioke Okwuokenye appreciated the support of the State Government through the supply of transformers to communities adding that the private sector needs such support for survival and effective service delivery.
