KAEDCO responds to NERC’s 60-day notice to cancel licence
The Kaduna Electricity Distribution Company (KAEDCO) has vowed to continue to provide electricity in its franchise area – Kaduna, Kebbi, Sokoto and Zamfara states despite a 60-day notice by the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) to terminate its licence.
DAILY POST recalls that NERC said it would cancel the Electricity Distribution Licence (EDL) issued to KAEDCO over the DisCo’s energy debt of over N93.42 billion, among others.
NERC, in a published notice tagged NERC/LC/023 signed by the Commissioner, Legal, Licencing and Compliance, Dafe Akpeneye, and dated May 15, 2023, gave the distribution company 60 days to repay its debt or have its operating licence revoked.
However, in a statement by the management of the distribution comany, it said the notice, in line with the regulatory power of the Commission, is coming on the heels of an initial engagement between the Commission and shareholders/lenders to Kaduna Electric-in-Receivership in sustaining the mutual objectives of the Federal Government for an intervention in a number of Electricity Distribution Companies including Kaduna Electric for a turnaround of the DisCos and sale of core interests to new investors.
“While the board and management have continued to work on the intervention objectives, challenges remain, and stakeholders continue to engage on addressing them,” it said
