*Mulls reversal of Electricity Privatisation

 

ABUJA–THE Federal Government yesterday said that Distribution Companies, DISCOs have failed in supplying adequate electricity to Nigerian consumers.

 

Government said it will no longer provide Intervention funds as subsisidy to the DISCOs and may take drastic actions against the companies as it would not continue to subside the companies without commensurate result.

 

The Federal Government concern is that the DISCOs have consistently failed to efficiently make use of the financial intervention.
