Eko Disco Teams Up With Police On Debt Recovery
This is a classic case of police policing itself.
The management of Eko electricity distribution company, Eko Disco has the police as one its debtors, but it appears it didn’t for sure know how to go about collecting it.
But the Police in Lagos have come to its rescue.
The company has said that the Lagos State Police Command promised to help it recover all the money police as customers owe.
Mr Godwin Idemudia, General Manager, Corporate Communications, EKEDC, said in Lagos on Saturday, that the Deputy Commissioner of Police, Lagos State Command, Mr Ayuba Elkanah, made the promise during a visit of the management of EKEDC to his office.
Idemudia said Elkanah pledged that the police would support the company to perform its operational duties effectively and be able to recoup debts owed by some of the police formations and facilities under its jurisdiction.
According to him, Elkanah said aside from the fact that the police needed power supply to power some vital security gadgets, constant power supply was also very vital in enhancing security in the society.
“Constant electricity supply makes the work of Electricity Distribution Companies and that of the police complimentary to each other.
“Since the work of the two organisations are complimentary, we must find a way to work together for better performance of our respective duties,” he said.
Idemudia said the police appreciated the gesture of the Disco in reaching out to them for mutual engagement instead of resorting to disconnection of police formations and facilities for non-payment without consultation.
He said the police, through the office of the Provost Marshal, has promised to work with the company for reconciliation of indebtedness figure and settlement of debts after reconciliation.If you enjoyed reading this and our other stories, please, share with friends and loved ones.
