The General Manager, Corporate Communications, Eko Electricity Distribution Company (EKEDC), Mr Godwin Idemudia, said the company distributed food items to orphanages in 10 districts within its network.
Idumudia said on Thursday, in Lagos that the gesture was part of the company’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).
Idemudia said the food items were distributed between December 20, 2018 and January 3, in Ibeju, Lekki, Island, Festac, Apapa, Ojo, Ijora, Orile, Agbara and Mushin.
These CSR initiatives consisted of donation of relief items to selected orphanages and homes for people with disabilities across all 10 districts, and distribution of food items to less privileged individuals on the street around the environs of its Corporate Headquarters in Marina.
According to the EKEDC Managing Director, Engineer Adeoye Fadeyibi, these initiatives reiterate the company’s commitment to fulfilling its duty to the society.
He said “The EKEDC motto is empowering quality of lives, this goes beyond ensuring that our customers are satisfied as we also make efforts to take care of the less privileged individuals within our network, especially during the festive and holiday seasons.”
In another statement made by Idemudia, he said: “Putting smiles on the faces of these people have brought joy and warmth to our hearts, making it more than just a CSR but a genuine commitment to making the world a better place.”
