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.
