THE Ikeja Electric Plc has commissioned the Obawole 15MVA transformer injection substation in Lagos. This means that electricity customers in Obawole, Fagba and Iju environs, in Ifako-Ijaiye local government area of the state would start to experience steady power supply.
The injection substation would provide residents of the area and environs power supply for up to 18 hours daily. Residents of K-Fam Estate, Olowo area, the entire Obawole community and Adisa Coker will get supply from the injection substation. Other areas that will also benefit from the project include Ahmed Afolabi, Coker Onifufu, Ashabi Taiwo streets and old Akute road, among others.
Speaking during the commissioning of the project, Anthony Youdeowei, managing director, Ikeja Electric Plc, said the new injection substation would facilitate vast improvement in the quality of electricity supply to customers within the area, bringing to an end the poor supply of electricity hitherto experienced by residents.
“We embarked on this laudable project, which has gulped about N500 million, with the aim of strengthening our network as well as enhancing improved electricity supply to residents of the area. This move has increased supply of power from the former two hours daily to 18 hours, with a view to finding a lasting solution to critical supply issues facing the community. This is in line with our commitment to our vision of provision of quality and reliable services to our customer.”
Youdeowei disclosed that the company will go into the second phase of the project by radiating two feeders which will further improve power supply to new Oko-Oba, Unity Estate, Fagba, Babatunde Hassan, Awobona and Iju Road. He explained that the company is committed to exceptional service delivery.
According to him, the company recently set up a dispute resolution panel to look into customer complaints emanating from the issues of estimated billing, noting that the company is doing its best to ensure a seamless integration of its vision for customer satisfaction.
He urged customers to continue to partner with Ikeja Electric for improved and qualitative services, especially with regard to regular payment of electricity bills, noting that payment of the huge outstanding debt owed Ikeja Electric by the community will go a long way in assisting the company to fulfill other obligations to its esteemed customers.
