Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of Benin Electricity Distribution Company (BEDC), Plc, Deolu Ijose, on Friday said his company was working with security agencies in the four franchise states to improve service delivery.
Ijose stated this during a courtesy call on the Commander, 4th Brigade of the Nigerian Army, Benin, Brigadier General Ndahi, DH, at his office.
The BEDC Managing Director said his visit to the command along with the management team was to familiarize themselves with the Brigade and seek cooperation in safeguarding the company’s personnel and assets in the franchise states of Edo, Ekiti, Delta and Ondo.
“The visit is intended to engage with the Army and appreciate the solid working relationship between the Command and BEDC, especially its quick response to the request for its people to work around our infrastructure.
“I condemn the alarming increase in incidents of vandalism and power theft on the Disco network and call on the Command to assist in safeguarding BEDC installations to enable effective operation,” Ijose said.
At the office of the Edo State Commissioner of Police, Mohammed Dankwara, and the state Director of State Services, Maria Ernest, Ijose commended the two for ensuring the security of the state and for their continuous support in protecting BEDC personnel and assets.
This was when he further called for greater cooperation and mutual relations between the police, DSS and BEDC.
The BEDC boss praised security chiefs for effectively settling electricity bills, while calling on them to increase monthly bill payments.
In response, the manager of the outlet thanked Ijose and his team for the visit and promised to maintain the mutual relationship that had existed between the two outlets over the years.
For her part, the head of DSS also declared her willingness to help the company in intelligence gathering and enforcement.
