Electricity tariff hike: Group to monitor October consumers’ bills to ensure no increment  

A group, the All Electricity Consumers Protection Forum, (AECPF), says it will monitor the bills of customers for the month of October to ensure that there is no increment by electricity Distribution Companies (DisCos).

The group made this known in a letter to the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC), yesterday, in Lagos.

The letter, which was signed by its National Coordinator, Adeola Samuel-Ilori, said electricity consumer groups were vehemently against any form of increment in tariffs by the DisCos.

Samuel-Ilori noted that the group would continue to maintain vigilance even if given assurances by NERC and the DisCos that there would be no tariff hike based on past experiences.

According to him, this may involve protests or legal action against NERC and the DisCos in a court of competent jurisdiction. He said the DisCos had not met the provision for the tariff increment especially in investment in infrastructure upgrade to improve quality of power supply to Nigerians.
