The Eko Electricity Distribution Company (EKEDC) has been rated as the best performing Electricity Distribution Company in Nigeria.

This was made known by the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC), Mr James Momoh, during an oversight visit to the corporate headquarters of the organisation in Marina, Lagos.

Mr Momoh noted that based on some parameters, the company, one of the two DisCos that serves Lagos State and some parts of Ogun State, emerged the pacesetter among its peers.

In his words, “Since I assumed office as the Chairman of NERC, Eko Disco has been the leader among its peers in terms of performance and all measurable indices.

“They have been impressive in automation, metering, minimum remittance, commitment to service improvement, and importantly in the reduction of the Aggregate Technical Commercial and Collection (ATC&C) losses.

“They have remained the industry leader, pacesetter and the best.”

He also praised the company for its role in the adoption of new technology and advancement of its processes and also charged them to carry on with their excellent performance in the electricity space.

Mr Momoh called on all employees of the Nigerian power sector to put in their best as they are the engine room expected to drive the sector to the desired heights.

The NERC boss was received by the Chairman, Board of Directors of the company, Mr Charles Momoh, who appreciated the head of the industry’s regulator for his visit and promised to work on the cordial relationship between the commission and DisCos.

He was commended for his role in bringing ease into the working relationship between the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) and the distribution companies.

EKEDC covers the southern part of Lagos state and Agbara in Ogun state. For the ease of operations and division of work, the license area of the firm is segmented into 3 circles and 10 districts, namely: West Circle which has three districts – Agbara, Ojo and Festac; Central Circle which covers four districts – Ijora, Mushin, Orile and Apapa; and East Circle which expands to three districts of Lekki, Ibeju and Lagos Island.
