He said providing the facilities was in line with the company’s continuous effort to provide quality services to its customers in the three states of its operations.
“We cannot achieve our four cardinal objectives without providing the necessary facilities required for the smooth operation of the company.
“We hope our customers will reciprocate the gesture with prompt payment of their electricity bills, “ Gwamna said.
He expressed optimism that the company is one of the best Distribution companies (DISCOs) in the country.
