The Kaduna Electric has reverted to the use of the old electricity tariff, which was obtainable on Aug. 31, 2020, as directed by the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission, (NERC).
The company made this known in a statement issued in Kaduna by the Head of Corporate Communications, Abdulazeez Abdullahi.
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 (electricity) 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.
“Pre-paid customers, who purchase electricity tokens from today, will, therefore, see the value of the old tariff reflected in their tokens, while post-paid customers will also see the old tariff reflected on their next bill,” he said.
Abdullahi expressed the hope that the technical committee set up to look into the rationale behind the service-based tariff, will conclude its assignment on schedule and allow for the implementation of the new tariff.
He said that the new tariff would aid efforts to enhance the quality of service to customers, improve liquidity and drive investments in the sector.
