AEDC Partners NAPTIN to Improve Service Delivery



By Adedapo Adesanya

The new management of the Abuja Electricity Distribution Company (AEDC) Plc has announced a partnership with the National Power Training Institute of Nigeria (NAPTIN) for training opportunities that the institute offers.

This was disclosed by the Managing Director of the Disco, Mr Akin Bada, in a statement by the company’s General Manager, Corporate Communications, Mr Oyebode Fadipe.

The energy company stated that the collaboration will help raise the competency profile of the company’s workers in order to improve service delivery to the customers.

Mr Bada, while receiving the Director-General of the Institute, Mr Bolaji Nagode, in his office in Abuja, said NAPTIN has become the first port of call for utilities seeking to train its personnel in the electricity industry across the African continent.

He stated that human capital remains the most critical asset of any organisation, stressing that every group must continually ensure that the capacity of its most critical asset is constantly positioned to deliver on its mandate.

“I am happy that NAPTIN which was established by the federal government of Nigeria to offer a wide range of manpower development programmes consistent with the needs of the industry has shown itself to be able to respond to the training needs of the power sector.

“With your mandate and your pedigree as the foremost power training institute in Nigeria and the African continent, therefore, AEDC will take good advantage of this opportunity to build the capacity of its workers,” he said.

On his part, Mr Nagode congratulated Mr Bada and the interim management team made up of Mr Sani Usman, Mr Donald Etim, Mr Babajide Ibironke and Mr Femi Zacchaeus on their appointment.

Mr Nagode said the appointment of Mr Bada, a veteran of the power industry was indicative of the need to reposition AEDC for optimal service delivery to its customers.

“In this regard, we are prepared to work with your management for the repositioning of AEDC as a critical asset in the country through training,” he noted.

The NAPTIN chief said the institute not only offers a wide range of human capacity training programmes but has also started its e-learning programmes in response to the safety protocols of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Since this pandemic is not about to leave us anytime soon, as a training institute, we adopted e-learning in order to ensure that the capacity of the workers in the sector is continually enhanced, ”he said.
