NSE tasks NERC on sanctioning DisCos who fail to honour service delivery agreement

NSE tasks NERC on sanctioning DisCos who fail to honour serv

The Nigerian Society of Engineers has urged the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission to sanction Electricity Distribution Companies failing to honour service delivery agreements.

Margaret Oguntala, NSE President, made this known on Monday in a briefing where she reacted to the recent electricity tariff hike.

Oguntala noted that NSE was not against the hike but insisted that electricity customers be protected and their needs met without being short-changed.

She said, “Policies are made but what is the framework for implementing these policies? How effective are they in the long run? If there are no sanctions for the DisCos and you claim to be giving someone in B and A 20 hours of supply, but you are not doing so, what happens?

“We are saying that there must be sanctions for defaults. Do you do that? Where there are shortfalls? The DisCos must be held responsible, meaning the metering must be very transparent.

"We must have asked what will happen during downtime when there are repairs; all these must be considered for the policy to work."
