From Femi Oyelola, Kaduna
Immediate past Managing Director and Chief Executive of the Kaduna Electricity Distribution Company (KEDC) Mallam Idris Muhammed said his most challenging moment was when there is no power to distribute to customers, stressing that he is always in a sad mood in the absence of power supply.
He however said with what was in place before the new investors took over the company, lack of power supply in Kaduna and Nigeria will soon be a thing of the past.
Mallam Muhammed who was speaking to Journalists in Kaduna said, those whose business is in the sale of generators should begin to think of another business as sales of generator will not be lucrative once Kaduna power plant and the Gurara dam comes up fully.
He expressed satisfaction with his retirement, saying, he is a fulfilled and have put a very solid foundation in at the KEDC which could stand the test of time.
“I have no doubt that the new investors have the capacity and will to improve on our successes but it will require patient on the part of the customers.
“I will continue to render my wealth of experience when called to do so in any capacity, but in the mean time I will be spending quality time with my family.
“My most challenging period was when there was no power to distribute to our customers because most of the places were in darkness. Just like darkness my heart was in darkness and what kept on coming to my mind is how I can bring light into the dark areas.”
He therefore assured Nigerians to expect a more uninterrupted power supply in the years ahead.
