The Chief Operating Officer (COO), Ibadan Electricity Distribution Company (IBEDC), John Ayodele, at the weekend, charged electricity consumers on the company's network to observe critical safety measures like staying clear of electrical installations and powerlines as well as proper supervision of children to prevent domestic and electrical accidents.
Ayodele in his Salah message to customers also advised motorists to avoid driving under the influence of alcohol and observing traffic rules to prevent collision with electric poles so as to ensure an accident-free celebration.
He also appeals to consumers on the need to switch off all electrical appliances not in use and not engaging quacks or self-help to fix faults. 
Ayodele expressed appreciation to all customers who attended the various town hall meetings across the company's franchise on the newly introduced  Meter Asset Provider (MAP) scheme which was created to bridge the huge metering gap in the power. He reiterated IBEDC’s resolve to continue to do everything within its capacity to improve service.
Ayodele in his goodwill message highlighted the sacrificial spirit of the season and implored all to emulate that for a better Nigeria.
