Your claim not true, power greatly improved, KEDCO tells Kano Water Board
POLITICS DIGEST – The Kano Electricity Distribution Company (KEDCO) has said that electricity supply has greatly improved in its franschise areas.
The company stated this on Friday while refuting claims by Kano State Water Board that inadequate power supply from the company is responsible for its low water supply.
“This is totally false and baseless as power supply in all states under KEDCO’s franchise area, have witnessed massive improvement in the last three months and everyone in Kano metropolis and environs can testify to this”, KEDCO said.
The DisCo said according to its power supply statistics, Tamburawa water treatment plant enjoyed an average 21 hours in April, 22 in May and 18 in June.
“Similarly, Challawa water plant got 22:48hrs in April, May: 22:42hrs and June: 21:14hrs. Based on analysis, Challawa and Tamburawa get average power supply of between 20 and 23 hours daily.
“Also the feeders that supply Challawa and Tamburawa are important feeders to KEDCO as they will always get supply as long as there is supply from the national grid; so the claim by Kano Water Board has no base as far as KEDCO is concerned”, KEDCO added.
The company then advised the water board to humbly take responsibility for their inefficiency and keep KEDCO out of its blame game.
The state water board has recently attributed its inability to serve its customers to inadequate supply from the DisCo in the state
