The Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) has cautioned Nigerians against paying for electricity distribution infrastructure, such as transformers, cables, and poles.



According to NERC, only the distribution companies (DisCos) are charged with the obligation to purchase such items.

The commission made this known in a statement on Tuesday, on their social media platform X, clearly stating that consumers should not be coerced into purchasing such equipment.


The statement reads, “Is your distribution company expecting you to buy transformers, cables, or poles? Don’t! It is the DisCo’s obligation, not yours!” NERC stated emphatically.


The commission therefore urged consumers to report any form of cohesion to contacts made available.


 “Report any coercion to purchase, or delays in providing these materials to NERC for prompt action.” The statement added.
