The Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) has said that power supply through the national grid which peaked to 5000mw in past two weeks had dropped below 2,800mw due to vandalism.
Dr. Anthony Akah, the Acting Chief Executive Officer of the commission disclosed this while signing a Memorandum of Understanding with the Consumer Protection Council (CPC).
Dr. Usman Abba- Arabi, Head, Public Affairs Department of NERC disclosed this in a statement in Abuja on Wednesday.
In the statement, Akah expressed dissatisfaction and worries over the spate of vandalism in the power sector.
It stated that the NERC boss enjoined the public and the CPC to collaborate with Distribution Companies (DISCOs) and security agencies to safeguard electrical installations.
The statement also said that the NERC would soon compel the DISCOs to publish their meter deployment schedules.
It added that the publication would ensure adherence to the meter rollout plan as contained in the performance agreement signed with government by the utility firms.
