Experts fault NERC’s new directive on electricity tariff

Some experts in the power sector recently faulted the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission’s (NERC) directive that Distribution Companies (DISCOs) would now fix their tariffs. They told the newsmen in separate interviews in Lagos that the directive could cause chaos because the DISCOs would over bill consumers who had no choice. We gathered that Dr Sam Amadi, Chairman of NERC, on April 8 said that DISCOs could now fix their tariffs in consultation with consumers, which would be subjected to approval by the commission.
