Niger invested N3bn on AEDC transformers in 6 years – SSG 

 

Niger state government has invested over N3 billion for the procurement of transformers, service lines and other AEDC infrastructures to ensure the provision of power to various communities in the last six years of the present administration.

The Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Alhaji Ibrahim Ahmed Matane, stated this while briefing newsmen in Minna Wednesday. 

He said  the state government expended N46 million monthly to pay Chanchaga Water Works for power supply by AEDC as electricity bill.

He stated that government has discovered that AEDC is billing government facilities not in use making it necessary for such bills.

He said: “We therefore engaged consultants to verify validation of some bills. Government has sustained its payment of the current bills and upsetting the outstanding. The company is still billing some old and non existing structures to the detriment of the state.”
