Similarly, account openings are also free and as such customers need not pay for new account openings. A press release signed by the Head Corporate Communications, Dr Friday Adakole Elijah called on customers to report anybody or staff demanding for gratification of any sorts for the installation of meters to the Regional Managers or the corporate headquarters of the company in Jos for appropriate action.
He also charged customers not to give out a fadem to staff who might be cajoling them to part with their money for the purpose of opening new accounts or separation of accounts for them. Dr Elijah said said any staff caught demanding for gratification from customers or extorting them would be subjected to serious disciplinary actions.
The press release further directed that on no account should customers accounts be closed and new ones opened stressing that any staff caught closing old accounts and opening new ones for same customers would be severely disciplined. He urged customers not to panic as according to him, there were adequate meters that could go round the entire customers of the company.
Dr. Elijah therefore urged customers to remain in their respective homes and wait for the meters.
