SEAMATA’s statement read: “We observed that your company is not only faced with the challenges of poor payment of electricity bills, increasing rate of vandalism by unscrupulous elements, frequent collapse of the national grid, natural disasters that affect your facilities; but in spite of all these, you were still able to tremendously improve in the supply of electricity to all the nooks and crannies of urban and rural areas across the South-East”.

“This remarkable improvement has reassured us, your consumers that 24/7 power supply is achievable, especially with the support of other members of the electricity value chain.

While acknowledging that there is always room for improvement, the association appealed to the company to not just maintain the attained feat but to surpass it order to turn out as the best and most efficient electricity distribution company in the country.

It went on to assure the company of its support in ensuring prompt payment of electricity bills and protection of its installations in all the markets across the South-East.
