Management of Ibadan Electricity Distribution Company (IBEDC) has felicitated Muslims on the occasion of Eid el Kabir, even as it assures its customers of uninterrupted service during the Sallah holiday.
This was contained in a goodwill message issued by the Chief Operating Officer (COO) of the company, Mr John Ayodele, in Ibadan on Monday.
Ayodele, an engineer, while reflecting on some of the key lessons of Eid-el Kabir, such as compassion, unity and sacrificial giving, enjoined all to demonstrate these virtues in their everyday life.
He urged Nigerians to imbibe the culture of celebrating cautiously and safely, saying that this would help reduce any breach of safety protocols that could endanger their lives.
“I plead with our customers and all Nigerians to observe and adhere to all the COVID- 19 safety protocols of hand washing, use of face masks and physical distancing, as recommended by Nigerian Centre for Disease Control (NCDC),” he said.
The COO said it was also important that other safety precautions, such as proper supervision of children to prevent electrical accidents, not cooking or trading under high-tension wires and not engaging quacks to fix faults, were strictly observed.
He also urged customers to take advantage of the company’s hassle-free payment platforms, such as Fetswallet, Quick teller, e-transact, Payarena, Jumia and USSD, to pay their electricity bills promptly and vend to ensure uninterrupted power supply during the festive period.
“Our offices are open during the holidays from 9 am. to 3 pm. daily to attend to customers for inquiries, complaints, bill payments/vending,” he said.
