AEDC denies increase in electricity tariff

Abuja Electricity Distribution Company, AEDC, has debunked reports alleging an increase in tariff in the Federal Capital Territory, FCT from July 1 2023.

Reports had earlier emerged that the distribution company will be increasing tariffs due to the fluctuation of the naira in the exchange rate market.

However, in a public announcement made by the management on its official Twitter handle on Monday, AEDC stated that no approval for such an increment has been received.

“Dear Esteemed Customers, Please disregard the communication circulating in the media regarding the review of electricity tariffs. Be informed that no approval for such increments has been received. We regret any inconvenience’’, the new statement read.
