BPE hails Kaduna Electricity on operational efficiency
By; Amos Tauna, Kaduna
Bureau for Public Enterprises (BPE) has expressed optimism that the management of Kaduna Electricity Distribution Company was focused and committed to its pre-bidding commitments to the BPE.
The assertion was made in Kaduna by a team of the Bureau officials on a post privatization monitoring of Kaduna Electricity Distribution Company.
The leader of the team, Mr. Ahmed Shitu, who spoke on behalf of the team, described what they saw and heard in the course of their assignment in the franchise area of Kaduna Electric as “re-assuring.”
Earlier in his welcome address, the Managing Director/CEO of Kaduna Electric, Engineer Garba Haruna reaffirmed the commitment of the core-investor to the business plan submitted to the BPE during the pre-bidding processes.
He disclosed that even though Kaduna Electric was the last Company to be privatized among the eleven distribution companies, the company had been able to upgrade and commissioned eleven injection sub-stations, with three others in advanced stage in about one year of take-off.
Engineer Garba also disclosed that the Company recently procured forty Hilux operational vehicles and 1, 500 motor cycles to further enhance its operations. “All these investments were made to ensure utmost efficiency in service delivery,” he explained.
He called on the BPE to address the current logjam in the issue of core and non-core assets handed over to the Company.
The BPE officials after scrutinizing the books of the Company, also visited the sites of some projects recently executed by the Company, the new service centre in Sardauna Crescent in the central part of Kaduna metropolis as well as inspected the operational vehicles recently procured by Kaduna Electric.
