FG unveils Power Outage Reporting System

The Federal Government yesterday unveiled an application called the Power Outage Reporting System, which enables consumers to report electricity disruptions to distribution companies under monitoring by the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission.

It reportedly unveiled the applications at the Abuja headquarters of NERC, using the Abuja Electricity Distribution Company AEDC as a test-run DisCo.

The NERC Chairman, Sanusi Garba, said the application would enable the commission to effectively tackle power distributors that fail to address electricity disruptions reported by consumers.

Commenting on the development, the Managing Director, AEDC, Christopher Ezeafulukwe, said the feedback from customers was the raw material needed by DisCos to be able to deliver the services required of them.

He stated that the app being launched  is a product of collaboration between the NERC, DisCos, and,the customers, which according to him implies that it is going to be a win-win for all.

On his part, the President, Nigeria Consumer Protection Network, and Coordinator, Power Sector Perspectives, Kunle Olubiyo, said the unveiling of the app was long over in the power sector.
