On the occasion of the recent rehabilitation of the Oyomabang thermal power station (13 MW), a suburb of Yaounde, Joel Nana Kontchou (photo), the general manager of Eneo Cameroon, concessionaire of the electricity sector, has once again, indicated that the company he runs is having trouble with his debt collection.
The recovery of unpaid bills from all our customers is becoming a major concern for Eneo Cameroon, as the investment needs are very high and may not be able to be solely fulfilled by an improvement in operational efficiency. All users must regularly pay their bills, it is a civic duty,
In the current state of affairs, the Cameroonian government itself acknowledges that it owes Eneo 20.3 billion FCFA as “shortfall” for the year 2017. But It should be noted that in the first quarter, the electric power company announced the recovery of nearly 4 billion FCFA who “slept in the pockets of customers“.
Joël Nana Kontchou recalls nevertheless that, despite a very difficult socio-economic context, the reinforcement of the production tool remained a priority. “These efforts, combined with the stabilization actions of the transmission and distribution networks, allow today to record a 31% improvement in the quality of service,” he says.
