To further demonstrate its commitment to building sustainable societies, Ikeja Electric Plc (IE), the leading electricity distribution company in Nigeria, recently partnered with the Lagos State Waste Management Authority (LAWMA) and made donation of waste bins to eighteen (18) selected primary and secondary schools within its area of coverage.
