Power Allocation

The latest development was confirmed in a statement issued during the weekend by the Managing Director/CEO of KEDCO, Abubakar Yusuf.

“We have assured our valued customers of improved power supply during the Holy Month of Ramadan.

“We are actively engaging with relevant stakeholders to enhance power allocation to KEDCO franchise,” Yusuf said.


The KEDCO director offered the assurance in Kano at a press conference held to clarify the reasons for the current power supply shortage.

“The reason we have been experiencing a shortage of power supply lately is as a result of low power generation nationwide.


“This is occasioned by gas constraint and consequently low load allocation to us for onward distribution to our customers.

Sacred Period

“We do acknowledge how important electricity supply is to our customers.

“Especially in this harsh weather condition, coupled with commencement of Ramadan.

“That is why we are engaging and collaborating with relevant stakeholders to improve load allocation and power supply to our esteemed customers, especially during this sacred period,” the statement read.

According to Yusuf, while the Dan Agundi repairs are being completed, KEDCO is discussing with the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN).
