By Mustapha Usman

The Chief Executive of the FCCPC, Babatunde Irukera made the call on Wednesday during an Electricity Town Hall Meeting, held at Dakata area in the Kano metropolis.

According to Irukera, the fact that most of the KEDCO’s customers are unmetered, the company should not use that advantage to charge them an exorbitant bill.

He noted that electricity has continued to be a contentious issue between providers and consumers, adding that there are a number of issues which are the priority of the distribution company to address, rather than charging the customers for the services they did not render to them. FCCPC B
