Electricity: FG, Labour Agree To Cut Price By N10.20 Per Kwh, For 3 Months by etokhana: 10:46pm On Oct 11
…says 6 million free meters will be distributed

The Federal Government and the Organized Labour, on the completion of the two weeks suspension of electricity tariff have resolved to provide tariff relief of N10.20 per kilowatt hour for Nigerians for the next three months and to distribute six million free meters.

In a communique made available to journalists after a lengthy meeting between Labour and the Federal Government on Sunday evening, it was disclosed that they adopted a two-phase approach to proffer solutions which would help resolve issues affecting the electricity sector in the medium term, whilst providing relief to customers immediately.

They stated that the immediate relief would be provided to citizens for a 2 to 3-month period (which will not exceed December 31, 2020), saying it will be the timeline for the conclusion of an extended scope of work for the Technical Committee.

According to the communique: “Following extensive analyses, it was realised that VAT proceeds from the Nigeria Electricity Supply Industry (NESI)
could be used to secure varying levels of reflief in customer tariffs across bands A, B and C, ensuring that all customers receive some form of relief during this difficult time.

“Cumulatively the per kWh relief that will be provided to customers in bands A, B and C is N10.20 per kilowatt hour (kWh), which will be distributed across the bands. The relief will be in place for the 2 to 3-month period required for the Technical Committee to conclude its extended scope of work. It should be noted that Bands D and E tariffs were not changed, and this freeze will remain in place.”

It was also disclose that the National Mass Metering Programme (NMMP) will be accelerated. They stated: “This programme will distribute 6 million meters to Nigerians free, off charge. The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) having approved the funding for this programme, the meters will begin being distributed to consumers immediately using stockpiles in country and local assemblers. The cost of meters shall be recovered from the DISCOs.

“The 6 million meters to be procured for the NMMP will only be through local meter manufacturers and assemblers. This will create jobs and a new meter manufacturing sub-sector in the country.”

It was also resolved that there will be proper salary protection for electricity workers. They disclosed that In implementing payment discipline measures for the DISCOs, the Government will ensure the protection of the salary for Electricity Workers saying it will be protected in the revised payment waterfall structure for the NESI.

“In order to protect customers from changes in tariff during the 2-3 month period of review by the Joint Technical Committee, DISCOs will be directed to temporarily suspend customer band migration. This means that while DISCOs are expected to fulfil their Performance Improvement Plans (PIP) thereby improving the quality of service to customers, no added charges will be passed on to customers during this period. This measure is aimed at building confidence in the Service Based Tariff structure,” the stated.

FG better reduce fuel and electricity tarrifs, or do they want us to do a bigger protest for this, you people in public office earn too much, you can not lrave the brunt of your recklessness for us to bear, never. FG borrows money and follows IMF dictates to increase tarrif, the money dem borrow is for their own use, this is absurd.

Nigerians have completely lost confidence in the labour union after the preparation for mother of all strikes, yet they sold out. Even during the time of Oshiomole, the government increased fuel price far above the intended target. They will then discuss with labour and come down a bit. NLC is simply a scam and an opportunity to amass wealth or prepare for a political position.
Like endSARS rally, the masses must rise to save this country

This is crazy. We should just be aware that we have no labour at all.

So after the 3 months what comes next? I only wish we take this #endsars protest further to #endbadgovernance and lock down Nigeria till we see tangible moves for real change

Officials and politicians will get their allocations first. Just like the jobs per local government last time.

The public will have to scramble for maybe 300,000 left. It won't be free by the way for most normal people.
