According to Punch report, the Chief Executive Officer/Managing Director, Henry Ajagbawa, who stated this on Tuesday at a press parley in Benin City, Edo State capital, noted that operational policies have been put in place to guide against the company revolving around an individual.
The former MD of the Port Harcourt Electricity Distribution Company also said the BEDC Plc was targeting at least N8 billion monthly to enable it to pay the over N9 billion to buy energy from electricity generation companies monthly.
He said, “We are to run the BEDC based on approved policies by the board. Our focus is to improve service in our franchise states of Edo, Delta, Ondo and Ekiti. We know the level of service has much to be desired and there is much to be done.
