Ighoyota Amori: DISCOs, GENCOs Far Worse Than NEPA In All Aspects by nairavsdollars(f): 4:18am On Sep 16
Senator Ighoyota Amori, the Political Adviser to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) National Chairman, on Tuesday said Power generating companies (Gencos) and Distribution companies (Discos) are the major problems Nigerians are experiencing.

Speaking in an interview with Daily Independent in Abuja, Amori who said Nigeria is retrogressing on a daily basis in the management of electricity said the Discos are far worse than the defunct National Electric Power Authority (NEPA) in all aspects.

He said the Discos and Gencos have been carrying on as if they are established to cater for the needs of wealthy Nigerians alone while neglecting the masses.

In his words “To be sincere, the major problem we are having in this country today is this Discos and Gencos. I think we are retrogressing when it comes to management of our electricity in this country. I can remember very well that when I was growing up, especially in my secondary school days, we never really heard of anything called generator”.

“Generators were limited to industries, not for everyday home use. In the then Mid-west, hardly can you see people using generators to power their houses. Yes, we have issues with electricity and power failures but it was not enough reason for people to have private generators”.

“Then, the electricity company will inform people that they want to switch off power and after some time, it will be restored. By so doing, people have no need to buy generators. Today, there is no city in this country that has stable electricity. All those claiming they have 20 to 24 hours power supply are just being insincere”.

“These Discos and Gencos have a mindset that they are programmed to provide service to wealthy Nigerians and forget masses. Since they have been privatised, they believe that their focus is more of commercial gains alone and so, they look down on poor Nigerians”.

“They only listen and focus on rich Nigerians and commercial enterprises who can afford to pay any bills they are charged. They have no time to address the yearnings and complaints of the masses at all.”

“During NEPA’s time, power supply was made available to everybody. Even though it was poor, it was far better than what we are experiencing now under the Discos and Gencos. Even after you have paid and you have issues with your electricity, these Discos will want you to bribe them before they will come and rectify it. They are worse than NEPA in every aspects”.

Lies.....Lies...from the pit of HELL.


How can we say DISCOS and GENCOS now are not far better than NEPA


NEPA that became so bad that anytime they mistakenly bring light, the "shout of joy" that vibrates from every nook and cranny resonates more than air waves.

That terrible "Up NEPA" slogan is yet to fade away till date.


DISCOS and GENCOS are milking us, they are not at eldorado yet...but to compare them with NEPA Haba!!

All these tours buhari (hence forth, i will be writing buhari's name in small letters) and his ministers have been touring round the countries of the world.

So they can't even go consult other countries where power is stable and working to learn how they did it??

To me the GENCO's are ok compared to the blood sucking DISCO's who are ready to milk the country dry without upgrading the power infrastructure. The analyst should also include the TCN for lack of infrastructure upgrade.

Don't mind him.
Otherwise, what is the basis of improved power supply being reported nationwide?
Most of us want something for nothing, without thinking for a minute about where the money is coming from, who is doing the work to generate the money.
So our societies and communities keep going from bad to worse and worse.

Bros leave Discos and speak on Delta state undecided No single capital project in Delta State, companies are leaving daily, na only yahoo be employment. A state with the second highest allocation can't finance a single project like Akwa Ibom.

An irresponsible government will always think that privatization, deregulation and loans are the only solutions to the problems of the nation. They are all desperate to be in power only to keep doing the same thing with hope of getting a different result!

With this increased tariff, it is cheaper to connect your light, get caught after some months and pay the fine than to be paying the increased charges.

Increased tariff, penalty for default remains same.
Instead of paying 15k on electricity monthly, connect directly for 10 months and when caught, pay the 50k fine. This is what happens when greedy and dumb idiots run a sector.

Delta is a dead end. Leave those ones to be hailing those destroying the state. Delta always ends up overdoing things. The politicians oversteal, the militants overdo, the yahoo criminals overdo, the populace overworship their oppressors.

Lies from the pit of hell.

This man thinks all Nigerians have short memories.

Generators were expensive and mainly for the well to dos NOT that light was okay. Light could be off for weeks or months in some places then.

Several towns could be sharing the same 300kva transformer back then which was why shedding was common place . But now there are mini transformers everywhere.

The solution is for generation, transmission and distribution to be sold off completely. I believe Siemens will do a good job here. Nigerian government and companies have failed us in this regard.

I am certain some powerful elites don't want Nigeria to have sustainable power supply...

One way of freeing oneself from the grip of poverty inflicted on us by these wicked leader is to be self employ, be innovative, seek for knowledge, invest in yourself...

Stop complaining of job...we have thousands of affilliate marketers earning 6 figures monthly....

Hop into your computer today, start something legal...live your dream life..
financial freedom is guaranteed online.

Stay Bless...Nigerians would overcome.

Brotherly it's very painful to see other states with little allocation doing great things and your state with too much money little doing nothing.
