The MD/CEO of the Port Harcourt Electricity Distribution (PHED) Plc, Dr. Benson Uwheru has urged employees of the company to be solution driven and hunger for innovative and more creative ways of performing their assignments. He made the charge at a strategic session with his executive team following the recent orders marshalled out to power distribution companies in Nigeria by the sector regulator, Nigeria Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC).
Dr. Uwheru pointed out that as many as seventy thousand customers of the company have not vended in the last six months, yet they are connected to the company’s network. He wondered how the company could continue to provide stable and quality power supply to its customers if the company is not being paid for services provided. He, therefore, advised the team to deploy every available resource to collect monies owed the company by customers.
The MD/CEO declared that every employee of the organization is now a Techno-Commercial staff and directed that all staff should be involved in the company’s revenue drive, including himself, noting that from hence, the Storm activities should be from the first day of the month to the last day of the month.
Speaking further at the strategy session, he informed that the implication of the NERC order is that the company must set and meet a N6b target monthly. Propounding the Blue Ocean theory, he directed every possible strategy should be deployed towards revenue drive in the company, via transformers, feeders, and technically and commercially driven in every region across its franchise area.
