 Don’t Make Any Payment To Fix Transformers, Cables, Poles In Your Area— FG Tells Nigerians

By Damilare Adeleye

The Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) has warned Nigerians against paying for electricity distribution infrastructures such as transformers, cables or poles in their respective domains.

In a statement shared alongside a video on X on Tuesday, NERC stressed that consumers should not be forced into purchasing transformers, cables, or poles.

It noted that such responsibility lies squarely with the distribution companies.

“Is your distribution company expecting you to buy transformers, cables, or poles? Don’t! It is the DisCo’s obligation, not yours!,” NERC stated emphatically.

The regulatory body urged consumers to report any coercion or delays in providing necessary materials by the distribution companies.

“Report any coercion to purchase, or delays in providing these materials to NERC for prompt action,” it added.

NERC further assured the public of prompt action upon receiving such complaints, saying that it has established a dedicated email and phone number for reporting issues related to network investments.

“A dedicated email and phone number have been set up to address issues relating to investments in the network as follows: idn@nerc.gov.ng 07074865354.”
