Stop calling us NEPA, it shows you don’t want electricity – Discos Spokesperson (Video)

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.
