The Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) has commended the Benue State Government for clearing the electricity bills issued to the state’s Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) by Jos Electricity Distribution Company (JEDC).
Dr. Anthony Akah, acting chairman of the commission, made the disclosure while inaugurating the Makurdi Forum Office.
Akah advised other states to emulate Benue so that the power sector could have enough liquidity to make power more readily available to Nigerians.
The aim of the Forum Office is to attend to electricity customer complaints not satisfactorily treated at the customer care unit of the electricity distribution company (Discos).
