The Kaduna Electricity Distribution Company (KEDC) has begun the implementation of its old tariff as ordered by the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC).
The Head of Corporate Communication, Abdulazeez Abdullahi, made the disclosure on Thursday in Kaduna.
Mr Abdullahi said that the reversal to the old tariff regime is sequel to the agreement reached between the Federal Government and the leadership of the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) this week.
His words, “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 customers who purchased 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.”
Mr Abdullahi expressed the hope that the technical committee that has been 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 will help to enhance service to customers, improve liquidity, and drive investments in the sector.
