The implementation of the revised service reflective tariff for electricity by power distribution companies is creating confusion among power consumers as some customers of Discos described it as an illegality .
According to the Nigerian Electricity Consumers Advocacy Network, a body of power sector experts and consumers from various sectors , the non – release of an order on the revised tariff by the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission had made matters worse .
The Chairman of NERC , Prof . James Momoh, had told our correspondent on Friday that the commission was working to post an order on the revised tariff on its website , but this had yet to happen as of the time of filing this report on Monday .
“ For this development to be taken seriously , there is a process to be followed, which include the fact that the NERC has to issue an order , ” the National Secretary , NECAN , Uket Obanga, said .
He added , “ The order will specify the various reductions in percentages and the respective bands of customers that were affected .
“ The commission had earlier said it suspended the service reflective tariff because of the negotiations between organised labour and the Federal Government and that negotiation had many discordant tunes . ”
