The spokesman of Abuja Electricity Distribution Company (AEDC), Mr Oyebode Fadipe, said on Tuesday in Abuja that the company has created a division mandated with the responsibility of monitoring fault lines in its franchise areas – FCT, Kogi, Niger and Nasarawa states.
This, he said, will assist the company in identifying faults long before its staff were even dispatched to carry out the necessary rectifications.
Fadipe said that the division will be led by the Director of Risk and Compliance, Mr Collins Chabuka, and consist of nine members handpicked from the technical and safety departments of the company.
According to him, the Managing Director of AEDC, Mr Ernest Mupwaya, handed three brand new vehicles to the newly-established division to enable it effectively tackle any hazards its field officers may face.

“It is better for any fault to remain unattended to if it will result to the death of any worker or members of the public.
“Any staff who does any act adjudged to be capable of causing any accident or electrocution will be sanctioned, including losing his job,” Mupwaya.
