The Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) that has been monitoring the Electricity Distribution Companies (Discos), Electricity Generation Companies (Gencos) and Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) indicated in its report that many of them performed below expectation in six months (between Q4’16 and Q1’17).


 The report disclosed that Kaduna, Port Harcourt, and Yola Discos were the least performing electricity distribution companies with 5.8 per cent, 27.5 per cent and 32.2 per cent respectively.

However, it identified Ikeja, Benin and Abuja Discos as the highest performers with 54.7 per cent, 47.9 per cent and 44.4 per cent respectively.

These were followed by Jos, Ibadan, Eko, Kano and Enugu with 42.6 per cent, 40.4 per cent, 38.4 per cent, 37.4 per cent and 33.0 per cent respectively.

The Discos were scored based on their ATC &C effort (10 points), collection efficiency (15 points), metering commitment (20 points), HV clearn Index (10 points), MO remittance (15 points) and NBET remittance (30 points) respectively.

Specifically, many companies did not do well in most key performance indicators, thus impacting negatively on the sector and Nigeria’s economy.

The inefficiency associated with revenue collection has affected the operations of not only the Discos but also the Gencos.

Consequently, the Gencos and other operators in the power chain may have to struggle to run its operations as compliance to remittance from the Discos averaged less than 15 percent out of the 30 percentage points target.

The highest remittance was Abuja Disco with 14 percent, followed by Eko Disco with 13 percent; while Ikeja, Ibadan scored 11 per cent each, Enugu scored 10 percent. While Yola scored 4 percent; Kano and Jos scored 5 percent each.

Also, Kaduna, Port Harcourt and Benin scored 6 percent; 7 percent and 9 percent respectively.

  1. the discos did not perform any thing, they are bunch of criminals. they refuse to give meter out to their customers hiding behind dollar and exchange rate palaba thereby bringing high bills to the customer/citizen . They are not helping Nigerians they are only eating them to marrow. Give Us meter and we know what we have used. NERC will just keep quite while their citizen are suffering in rally using those one in IKEJA as an example. metering should be the priority for performance.thanks
