The only power distribution company that is owned and currently being run by the Federal Government through the Federal Ministry of Power, Works and Housing, is planning to distribute electricity to customers in Niger Republic.
It was learnt that the Yola Electricity Distribution Company is working with the power utility company in Niger Republic to distribute electricity from Damasak in Nigeria to customers in the neighbouring country.
The Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer, YEDC, Baba Mustapha, disclosed this to operators in the power sector at the 27th monthly meeting of the industry stakeholders in Adamawa State, according to the minutes of meeting, obtained in Abuja on Friday.
Mustapha told stakeholders at the meeting that the YEDC was currently receiving 3.5 per cent of the total energy sent to the national grid by power generation companies, adding that the firm had never rejected load in spite of some constraints in the distribution network.
