The commissioner noted about 80 per cent installations were done by either state or local government areas in Sokoto State, indicating the need for the company to reciprocate the efforts by providing incentives to citizens.

According to him, the company should also prioritises relationships with customers in the state and ensure that its workers possess good human relations.

Dandinmahe further appealed to the company to redesign, improve metering system, saying that Sokoto was far left behind in the ongoing digital system.
