Sunday Oduntan, the Spokesperson of the Discos responsible for the distribution of electricity across Nigeria, has pleads to Nigerians to stop addressing them as NEPA and PHCN.
Oduntan revealed this while appearing on TVC’s ‘Your View’, as he noted that PHCN and NEPA is dead pleading to 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.
He also debunk claims of a 78% increase in electricity tariff pointing 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.
