DISCOs ready to give Nigerians free electricity

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Electricity Distribution Companies (DisCos) have given assurance of their support for the plan to supply free electricity to all consumers.

It is one of the palliative measures being considered by the National Assembly to bring succour to Nigerians in the face of COVID-19 induced economic paralysis.

Mr Sunday Oduntan, Executive Director, Research and Advocacy Association of Nigerian Electricity Distributors (ANED), confirmed the DISCOs support for the move on Wednesday in Abuja.

The House of Representatives is considering a Stimulus Bill that will allow Nigerians to enjoy free electricity supply for two months.

“We are completely aligned with the plans to ensure palliative measures, including free electricity supply to all Nigerians for two months, to make life easier, during the lockdown period”, Oduntan said.

“We recognise the challenging effects of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) on the economic and daily lives of our customers.

“In fulfilment of our commitments to the nation, we hereby align ourselves with the efforts of the National Assembly and the Federal Executive Council to mitigate the hardships that are currently faced by our customers and other citizens all over the country,” he said in a statement.

Oduntan said that DisCos also commended the Federal Legislators, the Executive arm and the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) for the initiative.

He said that the DisCos were committed to working with them to ensure more efficient power supply within this difficult period, as the nation battles with the ravages of COVID-19.

“Again, as a key utility player in the Nigerian Electricity Supply Industry (NESI), we hereby reiterate our commitment to improving service delivery to the nation during this pandemic period and thereafter,” Oduntan said
