The Abuja Electricity Distribution Company (AEDC) Plc, has vigorously protested the recent reported conviction of one of its employees by a Magistrate Court sitting in Lokoja, the Kogi State capital.
The said conviction was allegedly based on what the Court described as unlawful disconnection of a customer of the AEDC Plc. The judgment was delivered on August 12, 2021.
A statement by the AEDC Plc's Group General Manager, Corporate Communications, Oyebode Fadipe, said his organization is totally dissatisfied with the judgment of the Magistrate Court and has therefore instructed its lawyers to appeal the decision of the Court as a reflection of her position, which is contrary to the judgment of the Court.
According to Fadipe, "The Management of AEDC Plc hereby assures its esteemed customers and stakeholders of its commitment to the obedience of the laws and regulations that are relevant to its operations in the NESI". NNL.
