The Jos Electricity Distribution Company (JED) on Friday clarified the proposed two-month free electricity supply to Nigerians as palliatives to cushion the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.
A statement signed by Dr Friday Adakole,the company’s Head Corporate Communications, said that the two-month free electricity supply was still a proposal on palliatives to cushion the effects of the Coronavirus disease.
Adakole said based on the Federal Government and the National Assembly proposal that electricity distribution companies in Nigeria should supply free energy to their customers for two months as palliatives occasioned by the COVID-19 pandemic, the JED as a responsible corporate body aligned itself to the measure.
He, however, said that at the moment it was instructive for customers to note that no decision to this effect had been communicated to JED.
“It was still a proposal and whenever the decision is concretised and metamorphosed into reality JED would instantaneously embraced it,” Adakole said.
He urged all customers of JED to continue to support the company’s operations.
