The nation’s 11 electricity distribution companies (Discos) while responding to a report of a planned 100 per cent increase in electricity tariff, have indicated that Nigerians will not witness another increase in electricity tariff soon.
In a reaction to the story about another purported increase, the Director, Research and Advocacy for the Association of Nigeria Electricity Distributors (ANED), Sunday Oduntan, a lawyer, said there were no such proposals to NERC from his members.
He said: “Discos have not submitted proposals for upward review. The story is not true. Minor reviews are not done by Discos. It is from NERC. “We are finding it difficult collecting our money from consumers from the review in February. Why should we request for another review now? I don’t know why anybody would want to blackmail us with such reports.”
