Stop Calling Us NEPA, It Shows You Don’t Want Electricity – Discos Spokesperson

The Spokesperson of the Discos responsible for


the distribution of electricity across Nigeria,


Sunday Oduntan has asked Nigerians to stop


calling them NEPA.




Oduntan who appeared on TVC’s ‘Your View’,


debunked claims of a 78% increase in electricity


tariff as he pointed out that the Nigerian


Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) is the


independent regulatory body in charge


of regulating the power sector just like the


Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) regulates banks.




He further revealed that more than 95% of


what is used in Nigeria’s power sector are


imported which is why there is a proposed


increase in electricity tariff. Oduntan added that


if the exchange rate is okay and there is


reduced importation in the electricity sector,


there will also be reduced electricity tariff.




The Discos spokesperson also told Nigerians to


stop calling them NEPA because it shows they


don’t want change, have not noticed there is a


change and also don’t want electricity.
