The Northern Electricity Distribution Company Ltd (NEDCo) is said to begin a revenue mobilisation to recover monies owed it.
The exercise which will start on 18 April 2023 will cover all customers in arrears, including State-Owned Enterprises (SOEs), Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs), Metropolitan, Municipal and District Assemblies (MMDAs).
According to a statement issued by management, special security arrangements will be put in place to arrest and prosecute anyone who interferes with the exercise.
It added that persons identified to have engaged in illegal connections or reconnections will equally be dealt with in accordance with the law.
The statement also noted that recalcitrant customers who have refused to redeem their indebtedness to the Company after they have been served with demand notices will be arraigned before Court.
They, therefore, urged customers in arrears to pay their bills immediately to avoid disconnection and payment of reconnection fees.
The statement said the NEDCo’s Head Office and Area Offices will be closed temporarily to allow for the full engagement of all staff, including top management in this exercise but said their customer service centres, zonal offices and third-party vendors will remain open to attend to customers including reconnections.
