Tinubu Orders Payment Of Villa’s N342m Electricity Debt



President Bola Tinubu has directed an immediate settlement of N342m as an outstanding electricity bill due to the Abuja Electricity Distribution Company by the State House.

The President’s directive follows the reconciliation of accounts between the State House Management and AEDC.

“Contrary to the AEDC’s initial claim of N923m debt in paid advertorial in newspapers, the State House outstanding bill is N342.35m,” said the Presidency in a statement signed by Tinubu’s Special Adviser on Information and Strategy, Bayo Onanuga, on Tuesday.

The statement is titled ‘President Tinubu directs payment of State House electricity bill.’

The President’s Chief of Staff, Femi Gbajabiamila, assured the AEDC that the debt will be paid before the end of this week.

He also urged defaulting Ministries, Departments and Agencies to clear their electricity bills as soon as possible.
