Electricity Distribution Companies in Nigeria (DISCOs) have told the federal government that they are ready to supply Nigerians with 2 months of free electricity due to the current coronavirus pandemic. The move was revealed by the Executive Director, Research and Advocacy Association of Nigerian Electricity Distributors (ANED),  Sunday Oduntan, Who stated:

Quote
“Details of the implementation of plans for the free electricity supply will come soon.
“We are completely aligned with the plans to ensure palliative measures, including free electricity supply to all Nigerians for two months, to make life easier, during the lockdown period.

“We recognise the challenging effects of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) on the economic and daily lives of our customers.

“In fulfilment of our commitments to the nation, we hereby align ourselves with the efforts of the National Assembly and the Federal Executive Council to mitigate the hardships that are currently faced by our customers and other citizens all over the country.”

Oduntan said that DisCos also commended the Federal Legislators, the Executive arm and the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) for the initiative.

He said that the DisCos were committed to working with them to ensure more efficient power supply within this difficult period, as the nation battles with the ravages of COVID-19.

“Again, as a key utility player in the Nigerian Electricity Supply Industry (NESI), we hereby reiterate our commitment to improving service delivery to the nation during this pandemic period and thereafter,” Oduntan added.
