The state government said rather, that EEDC owes it N300 million arising from over billing. Enugu State Commissioner for Information, Dr Godwin Udeuhele said yesterday that the clarification became necessary following erroneous claims by EEDC.
The minister had also faulted a no confidence vote passed on the EEDC by the State Assembly and claimed that the company has been under severe attack in the state.
Udeuhele said that contrary to the claim by the company, it was EEDC that owed the state government. He said they had taken steps to encourage the company and had remitted N100 million to EEDC before they made a startling discovery of the true position of things.
