Goddy Jedy-Agba, Minister of State for Energy, has called for a synergy between the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) and the Ibadan Electricity Distribution Company (IBEDC) to improve services to customers.

He made the call Thursday during a tour of the facilities at the IBEDC exchange injection substation and TCN’s Ayede substation in Ibadan.

The Nigerian News Agency (NAN) reports that the minister was accompanied by Chief Akintunde Ayeni, chairman of the IBEDC board, and John Ayodele, IBEDC’s chief operating officer.

NAN recalls that a section of the Ayede TCN substation in Ibadan was devastated on February 5 by an inferno that subsequently affected the services of the IBEDC.

Jedy-Agba said he was in Ibadan to see what could be done to improve the distribution companies’ services to customers.

“We are here to see what is on the ground and what should be done to support TCN so that the club can provide services to Ibadan and its surroundings,” he said.

The minister called on the two companies to work together to ensure that their clients in and around Ibadan enjoy quality services in terms of power supply.

However, the IBEDC, as part of efforts to improve its services and ensure that customers get value for their money, has upgraded the IBEDC exchange injection substation in Ibadan.

Mr. Olagunju Abimbola, IBEDC Ibadan Dispersion Supervisor, said that the company had just inaugurated a new 11KV switchgear at the Interchange Substation.

Abimbola said the recently upgraded distribution equipment was aimed at increasing power supply to its customers in and around Ibadan.

“This recently upgraded switchgear will increase the power supply to and around Ibadan. It will also help detect any failures that occur in the field, ”he said.

Additionally, Abdulrazak Jimoh, IBEDC Technical Manager, Molete Business Hub, corroborated Abimbola’s explanation, saying that the project was one of the company’s efforts to meet the demands of its clients.

Jimoh said the project would handle the expansion, while the company planned other projects aimed at further improving its services.

He said the company was more committed to improving service delivery to its customers.
