The Association of Nigerian Electricity Distributors (ANED) says that Nigerians should not be instigated against power sector
A statement issued by the ANED’s executive director, research and advocacy, Sunday Oduntan, said: “No one is more interested in comprehensive metering than the Discos. However, metering comes at a cost.”
It said that non-payment of electricity bill obligations and tariff that did not allow for full cost recovery could prevent achieving desired outcome.
The statement blamed recent publication by some sections of the media as “directly focused on inciting Nigerians against the power Discos and, by extension, the power sector,” adding: “The advertorial was based on the recent court judgement with respect to the tariff increase which the Discos appealed against.”
