NERC Sets up 10-man team to monitor power supply


Coming on the heels of the recent improvement in electricity to Nigerians, the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission NERC has set up a 10-man enforcement team to monitor power supply in the country.

The chairman, Sam Amadi said that improvement being noticed in electricity supply industry was  result of regulatory efforts of the past

“It is time to improve on our enforcement activities. Enforcement should not be an event but a process, which could entail complaint, investigation and monitoring.”

He advised members of the task team to give the assignment their best in order for the Commission to achieve its mandate of ensuring that electricity is delivered in a safe, adequate, reliable and affordable manner, which will ultimately result in improved service delivery in the sector

He mandated the task team to list out specific issues to be investigated on their own at any point in timeThis is in addition to issues that could be referred to them for investigation, compliance and monitoring. 

Head of Enforcement Unit NERC, and the team leader, Chijioke Obi, acknowledged that the assignment was coming at the right time and promised that members of his team will not fail the Commission in carrying out the assignment.

Memberships of the team were drawn across the divisions and departments of the Commission.
