Oredola Adeola

The management of the Eko Electricity Distribution Company (EKEDC) has met with the Lagos State Government to discuss ways of collaboration on the decentralisation of Nigeria’s power sector and improving electricity supply in the state, in alignment with the power granted to the sub-nationals to generate, distribute and transmit electricity.

 

Babatunde Lasaki, EKEDC’s General Manager, Corporate Communications, made this known in a statement obtained by EnergyDay.

 

According to him, the board and management team of EKEDC recently paid a courtesy visit to Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, to congratulate him on his re-election.

He also said the visit was meant to discuss ways of collaborating with the Lagos State Government on the decentralization of power and optimization of service delivery to consumers.

 

EnergyDay further gathered that the EKEDC is seeking a way to partner with Lagos State to develop the electricity market frameworks that will guarantee improved power supply in the state.

 

The EKEDC team was led by Dere Otubu, Chairman EKEDC Board Of Directors, and Dr. Tinuade Sanda, Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer.
