1 min read

No fewer than 86 ministries, agencies and departments of government are owing the Abuja Electricity Distribution Company to the tune of N47bn.

According to a public notice by the management of the AEDC, the Presidential Villa owes the DisCo the sum of N923.9m; the National Security Adviser owes N95.9bn; the Ministry of the Federal Capital Territory being supervised by Nyesom Wike owes the sum of N7.57bn, while Adebayo Adelabu’s Ministry of Power is indebted to the tune of N78m.

In the notice on Monday, the AEDC said it would be constrained to list the names of MDAs 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 been achieved the desired result”.

The AEDC threatened to disconnect the MDAs in 10 days should they fail to pay their debts.
