The board of the Eko Electricity Distribution Company (EKEDC) says a communication recalling Tinuade Sanda from her role as managing director (MD) and chief executive officer (CEO) does not represent its position.


In a statement on March 28, Babor Egeregor, a director and chairman, legal and regulatory committee, said the directive terminating the appointment of Sanda has been nullified.

However, in a statement on Thursday,  company chairman Dere Otubu said the board did not authorise Egeregor to issue any statement on its behalf.


“The attention of the Board of Directors has been drawn to the recent statements online and in print media from Mr. Babor Egeregor, supposedly acting on behalf of the board,” the board said.

“This is to state that the Board of Eko Electricity Distribution Plc (“EKEDP”) did not and has not authorized Mr. Babor Egeregor to issue any statement or press release on its behalf. We therefore urge the general public to regard all communications from him as his personal views and does not represent the position of the Board of “EKEDP.”

The board said only communications signed by the chairman are authentic and represent the position of the company on any issue.
