Jega described the Kebbi State government as the most supportive state government in the company’s franchise, pledging that Kaduna Electric will not take the gesture for granted.
“Our quest for the provision of sustainable and efficient electricity service begins with all stakeholders coming together and appreciating the fact that the industry must generate adequate funds to finance its operations and this fund only comes from the payment of electricity bills,” he stated.
Responding, governor Bagudu described electricity as an essential ingredient for the socio-economic development of any society and pledged to partner with Kaduna Electric to ensure sustainable improvement of electricity supply in the state.
