It is crazy to think that nigerians or companies operating in Nigeria have the option to buy transformers in order to connect to the national grid. How absurd! it further buttresses the notion that Nigeria is indeed a unique society. I can categorically inform you that this ‘ban’ is fictitious. it will surely generate illegal funds for a set of people. – Jide Salu
The federal government has ordered electricity Distribution companies (Discos) to stop customers from buying transformers.
The Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, issued the order when he received the new Managing Director of Abuja Electricity Distribution Company (AEDC), Mr Ernest Mupwaya, yesterday.
He said: “Private purchase of transformers must stop because that is the responsibility of the Disco and that is what will bring confidence that the system is working.”
