Amoda Retires as Eko Disco Managing Director

By Dipo Olowookere

Mr Oladele Amoda has retired as the Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer of Eko Electricity Distribution Company (Eko Disco).

The electricity distribution firm’s boss retired after spending 34 years in the power sector in Nigeria.

During his time at the company, Mr Amoda implemented the EMS 2000 centralised billing system. He also ensured smart metering was put in place.

Mr Amoda, in addition, put in place a centralised salary payment system at the firm, while expanding channels of payment (electronic collection) from three to seven at the Eko Disco.

While handing over to his successor, Mr Adeoye Fadeyibi, last Friday in Lagos, Mr Amoda said his “greatest achievement has been my ability to lead a management team and workforce who have consistently performed better than most of the other Discos in spite of daunting challenges.”

According to him, “Now, after three and half years in the Nigerian electricity supply industry as a paid worker in the power sector, the time to move on to another plain of life has come.

“The time has come for me to pass the baton on so the race for excellence in Eko Disco can continue from where I stop.

He described his stay at the power sector as “a long journey,” having started in 1983 “when I joined the then National Electric Power Authority (NEPA).”

He expressed appreciation to his team at Eko Disco, saying he would miss them greatly.

Mr Amoda said, “I will forever long to see this company grow from strength to strength and success to success.

“It is my deep-rooted wish that the mustard seed that we have all jointly sown for the company’s greatness will grow and blossom to full fruition for all to envy and admire.”
