The Ibadan Electricity Distribution Company (IBEDC), on Thursday, restored power supply to University College Hospital (UCH), Ibadan.

Chief Medical Director (CMD) of UCH, Prof. Jesse Otegbayo confirmed the power reconnection to the hospital in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Ibadan.

NAN reports that IBEDC had, on March 19, disconnected the power supply to the nation’s premier health institution over what it called accumulated indebtedness.

The Joint Action Committee (JAC) of UCH had also directed the workers to work between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. daily until power was restored to the hospital.

Otegbayo told NAN that the power supply was restored after the hospital had paid a substantial amount from the outstanding sum.

“We have agreed on some payment terms. I don’t want to be quoting figures but we have met the conditions IBEDC gave us.

“Not all debts have been paid but we have paid as they (IBEDC) asked us to do in the payment plan and that’s why they have reconnected us,” he said.

The spokesperson of IBEDC, Ms Busolami Tunwase, also confirmed the development, describing the company as customer-centric.

Tunwase said that a little over 10 per cent of the outstanding debt was paid by UCH, while workable payment modalities had been reached by both parties.

“We hope they (UCH) keep to their ends of the bargain,” she said. (NAN)
