According to a statement issued by NERC Media Head, Maryam Yaya Abubakar, Amadi, who assured consumers of improved services in the current privatised power sector, said, “We are all set for a new dawn in the electricity service in Nigeria. Part of our responsibility is to ensure we pursue consumer protection for good service delivery.”
