In a press release on Friday wishing all its customers and Nigerians a merry Christmas and new year celebrations, IBEDC said measures have been put in place to ensure that faults are attended to promptly to avoid unnecessary power disruptions.
“In anticipation of customers’ expectations during the holidays, we are fully equipped to ensure that faults are cleared as fast as possible to avoid unnecessary disruption of power supply,” it said.
IBEDC further said that the birth of Jesus Christ was an embodiment of sacrificial love which all mankind should emulate.
“It is important that we dedicate ourselves to the service of humanity in line with the true teachings of Jesus Christ on tolerance, patience, brotherly kindness, care for the needy and love for one another,” it said.
The management advised customers to take advantage of its hassle-free channels of payment to pay bills and vend such as Quick teller, etransact, Payarena, Jumia, Watu, Buypower and ATM to avoid disconnection during the holiday period.
The company also admonished customers who may wish to pay in cash to do so only at any IBEDC office after which the customer must register his/her details and collect receipts. It also advised customers to pay through authorised agents.
