The Power Distribution Companies (DisCos) are likely to lose as the Federal Executive Council (FEC) set to take a stand on the sale of power sector. 
Specifically, FEC blame the DisCos for poor electricity supply in Nigeria.
The Federal Executive Council (FEC) will now decide the fate of the DisCos, after reviewing a memo on their performance.
It would be recalled that the Federal Economic Council had earlier setup a committee led by Kaduna State governor, Malam Nasir El-Rufai.
The committee which is receiving imputs from Nigerians, had earlier complained that the DisCos failed to improve on the power sector despite billions spent by the federal government on the power sector.
Minister of Power Saleh Mamman,on Wednesday, said the DisCos are to be blame for poor power supply.
Mamman said the licences of the DisCos may be revoc because the power supply has not improve in the country in spite DisCos promise that it will improve after privatization.
Nigeria has about 10 DisCos which uncludes: Ikeja Electric, Benin DisCo, Abuja DisCo, Kano DisCo, Port Harcourt DisCo, Ibadan DisCo, Enugu DisCo, Eko DisCo, Jos DisCo, and Kaduna DisCo.
Yola DisCo which is suppose to be private is in the hands of government.
To reduce the influence of the DisCos, the minister said the government had “signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the German government and Siemens.
They are to align between distribution, transmission and generation so that if we generate 13,000 megawatts, transmission will take the whole 13,000 and will distribute same. That way, Nigerians will be happy and everyone will have 24/7 electricity supply.”
The minister added: “The DisCos are manning the distribution that is why I have submitted my observations to the government. It is left for the government to decide. We just have to sit and see whether they are capable, have the technical know-how because most of the problems we are having today is technical and commercial losses.
“They will give you electricity and may not collect your money or they will collect the money and pocket, or they may send electricity and you may not have good sub-station that may collect this power and distribute to customers. This has been our major problem and it is the responsibility of the DisCos to take care of that end”.
Mamman  said: “Government cannot continue subsiding because what they (DisCos) are doing is that they collect 3,000 megawatts and pay for only 1,000 megawatts, that is 15 per cent of what they are collecting, so government is the one completing the payment. We cannot continue like that.
“If they are ready to continue, fine but if they are not ready to continue maybe they should give way to whoever that is ready to come and invest. We are asking the government to review and see if they are capable, but if they are not capable, they should give way.
“Most of the problems we are facing in this country that we cannot get electricity supplied adequately and efficiently is because we have a problem in distribution. Generation, no more problem. We can generate up to 13,000 megawatts, but the transmission, those who are taking the electricity supply can only take 7,000 megawatts, even at that they are not taking the whole 7,000 megawatts but only 4,500 megawatts and then send to distribution. The distribution in turn receives only 3,000 megawatts. Because of technical and commercial reasons, they cannot contain the entire power that has been generated.
“So, we have to correct the infrastructure. That is why I said that today, I submitted my observation to council and I believe the government is on it.
Mamman who said government has intervene alot in the power sector, said: “If they are ready to continue, fine, but if they are not ready to continue maybe they should give way to whoever is ready to come and invest.
“We are asking government to review and see if they are capable but if they are not capable they should give way.’’

  1. Good recommendations. Government should revoke the license giving to Dicos The Discos are only interested in collecting payments and are not interested in improving the electricity distribution network. The distribution system should be given to whoever that is ready to improve, expand and modernize the distribution network

  2. If the GENCOS are generating about 13000MW and DISCOS are taking 3000MW, then where is the remaining 10000MW. .
    I can still recollect that in the year 1985 or there about , the company I worked with, Oladipo Ilumoka and Associates in conjunction with Electrowatt Engineering of Switzerland were commissioned to investigate why there is such a wide margin between generated and distributed power. We were able to discover after visiting all generating stations, 330kV trsnsmission stations, in the country that at Ikeja West transmission station, the energy meters readings were not properly recorded due to incorrect usage of CT and VT ratios. In fact a multiplying factor of 1000 was not used. This gives the impression that energy being recorded is lower than what is taken. I will advice that this should be looked into again, for us to know where the problem is. In addition, it should be noted that there is transmission losses which may be up to 20% of what is generated.

    stumbledupon it 😉 I’m going to return yet again since i have saved as a favorite it.

  4. My partner and I absolutely love your blog and find the majority of
    your post’s to be what precisely I’m looking
    for. Do you offer guest writers to write content for you
    personally? I wouldn’t mind composing a post or elaborating
    on a lot of the subjects you write regarding here. Again, awesome web site!

  5. Greetings I am so grateful I found your web site, I really found you by error, while I was researching on Google
    for something else, Anyways I am here now and would just like to say
    thanks a lot for a remarkable post and a all round enjoyable blog (I also love the
    theme/design), I don’t have time to read through it all at the minute but I have saved it and also added
    your RSS feeds, so when I have time I will be back to read a great deal more, Please do keep up the awesome job.

  6. This design is wicked! You definitely know how to keep a reader entertained.
    Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Great job.

    presented it. Too cool!

  7. First off I would like to say excellent blog! I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you do not
    mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear
    your mind prior to writing. I have had a tough
    time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out. I do enjoy writing
    but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally wasted
    simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or tips?
    Kudos!

  8. You actually make it appear really easy with your presentation but
    I find this topic to be actually one thing that I think I’d by no means understand.
    It sort of feels too complicated and extremely vast for me.

    will try to get the hang of it!
