The Nasarawa State regional manager of the Abuja Electricity Distribution Company ( AEDC ) Mr. Ameen Shakur disclosed that about 40 transformers have been vandalized in Lafia, capital of Nasarawa state since January 2017.
Shakur disclosed this on Wednesday when the executive and members of the Correspondents’ Chapel of the Nigeria Union of Journalists ( NUJ ) Nasarawa State Council visited the company in Keffi.
He decried the high rate of vandalism of electrical installations in the state, adding that the menace was impeding AEDC’s efforts in delivering effective service to the people of the state.
We have recorded over 40 transformers being vandalized since January in Lafia alone and that is what is happening all over the state. It is high time customers took ownership of the equipment because they are located in their areas and are serving them. There is nothing wrong with customers asking questions when they see suspicious persons around electricity installations.
