EMBARRASSING: Abuja Electricity to Disconnect Aso Rock, CBN, EFCC, FCT, others over N47.1bn Debt


The Abuja Electricity Distribution Company has threatened to disconnect the electricity in the Presidential Villa and over 80 Government Ministries and Agencies over N47.1 billion electricity debt.

According to an advertorial on Monday, the AEDC said it was constrained to publish the names of its debtors with “long outstanding unpaid bills.”

“The Abuja Electricity Distribution PLC is constrained to do this publication with the details of Government, Ministries, Departments and Agencies with long outstanding unpaid bills for services rendered to them through the provision of electricity supply in that our previous attempts to make them honour their obligations have not achieved the desired results,” the notice read.

The AEDC said it would commence disconnection of the Presidential Villa and other MDAs that have failed to pay their bills by February 28.

“The relevant MDAs are hereby given notice that the AEDC shall, after the expiration of 10 days from the date of this publication, that is, after Wednesday, 28th February, 2024, embark on the disconnection of our services to them until they discharge their obligations to us by paying their debts,” AEDC said.

Aside from the presidential Villa, the Ministries of Finance, Information, Budget, Works and Housing, barracks, Nigeria Police Force, CBN, Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS), Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN), and State liaison offices in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) are among the MDAs owing the AEDC, the statement said.
