The Management of Jos Electricity Distribution Plc is to invest about seven billion, two hundred million naira (N7.2 B) in its quest to expand its network.
This was disclosed by the Executive Director, Finance and Account, Alhaji Mamamlafia Umar last Wednesday during the opening of bids for the company’s capital projects for 2021 at Lamonde Hotel, Jos, Plateau State.
Alhaji Umar further disclosed that the above amount was different from the additional five billion, two hundred million million naira ( N5.2 B) already injected into the metering programme by the company.
He explained that at the end of the investment, customers would have the cause to be happy as there would be stable and steady power supply.
"By the time all these investments are concluded, customers will be experiencing good availability in energy supply and they will be happy with us", he optimistically stated.
While hoping that customers would appreciate the efforts of the company by reciprocating in terms of prompt payment for their consumed energies, the Executive Director said Jos Electricity Distribution Plc would always strive to serve to serve her customers better.
In consonance with the spirit of transparency and fairness, all the lots were opened publicly after they were ascertained by the various vendors, contractors and representatives of Council Of Registered Engineers in Nigeria, Plateau State Bureau of Public Procurement, Chartered Institute of Supply Management, Jos Community amongst others.
