Kaduna Electric has begun implementing the old electricity tariff as at Aug. 31st, 2020 as ordered by the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC).
The Head of Corporate Communication, Abdulazeez Abdullahi, made the disclosure on Thursday in Kaduna.
Abdullahi said that the reversal to the old tariff regime was sequel to the agreement reached between the Federal Government and the leadership of the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) to suspend the recently approved service based tariff.
“Following the directive of the NERC to Distribution Companies to suspend the new Service Based Tariff, the management of Kaduna Electric wishes to inform its customers and the general public that it has fully complied with the directive.
“Prepaid customer who purchase electricity tokens from today will therefore see the value of the old tariff reflected in their tokens, while postpaid customers will also see the old tariff reflected on their next bill,” he said in a statement.
Abdullahi expressed the hope that the technical committee set up to look into how the service based tariff was arrived at, would conclude its assignment on schedule and allow for the new tariff to be implemented.
He said the new tariff would help to enhance service to customers, improve liquidity and drive investments in the sector.
