According to the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) bench marking and ranking of DISCOS for the 2nd quarter of 2016, Ibadan Electricity Distribution Company (IBEDC) has moved from the 4th position it occupied in the first quarter of 2016 to the number one position. This good development was made known by NERC in the presence of the Honourable Minister of Works, Power & Housing Mr. Babatunde Raji Fashola at the monthly sectoral meeting held at Maiduguri last week. The rankings are based on the following parameters-ATC&C losses reduction, Collection efficiency, Metering progress, HV faults clearance Index and Reporting Compliance.

In response to the laudable feat, the MD/CEO of IBEDC, Mr. John Donnachie attributed the improved performance to the commitment and pursuance of the company’s 5 pronged 2016 strategic business initiatives to improve overall service delivery and customer experience to its esteemed customers.

He further stated that IBEDC will not rest on its oars, as this new position has undoubtedly spurred and invigorated the entire workforce to become more committed and continuously put in their utmost to ensure, superior and efficient service delivery to our customers in line with our vision to be the best electricity distribution company in the country.
