The Kano Electricity Distribution Company (KEDCO) responsible for the distribution of electricity in Kano, Jigawa and KATSINA has stated that it need atleast 600 mega watts of electricity daily to its franchise area to be able to provide a stable electricity supply to its consumers.
This is contained in a post on one of their official social media account yesterday. The post read in part “Did you know: KEDCO’s franchise area of Kano, Katsina and Jigawa states need a minimum of 600 megawatts daily to enable us provide stable electricity supply for our valued customers?”
According to the post also, “The maximum megawatts we (KEDCO) have ever recorded is around 320 megawatts in March 2016. Presently, we are receiving an average of around 120 megawatts out of a meager total average of 2,700 generated nationwide.”
With this it could be safe to say that a stable electricity is far not insight as a little above one-quarter (1/3) of our need is the highest we ever recorded so far.
