Acting Managing Director of the company Paul Okeke made the plea on Tuesday in Enugu state, adding that the extra bills accrued by MDAs from 2017 which were not part of the N4.4bn.
According to Okeke, the bulk of the debt owed by the MDAs is from electricity consumed by military formations in the region
He said that the debt profile of electricity consumers in the area had remained huge at all strata of the company’s customers’ profiles.
Also, he revealed that energy theft is affecting the firm saying
“we lose billions of Naira each month to energy theft by people and it seems like the theft is currently endemic.
“We are constantly deploying new technology to prevent energy theft, but it seems that those behind this retrogressive act always look for new ways to perpetrate their evil intentions.
“I will implore the National Assembly to enact a law that will put stringent penalty on people that engage in energy theft.
“In the same vein, I will like the legislature to establish a special court for prosecution of those who engage in the act.”
