BEDC Criticised Court’s Ruling On Electricity Tariff
The Manager, Corporate Affairs, BEDC, Tayo Adekunle, stated that the court’s decision was inimical to the progress of the power sector.
However, a civil rights activist, Omobude Agho, has lauded the judgement of the court.
He accused the distribution companies of exploiting Nigerians with the new price regime.
The Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) had in an earlier discussion discredited claims that it flouted the court’s injunction on the tariff increase.
The commission noted that the lack of understanding of the privatisation and reform policy was responsible for the reactions that have trailed the electricity tariff increase.
