To conduct an unbiased final periodic review of the performance of the privatised electricity Distribution Companies (DisCos), by December 31, 2019, the National Union of Electricity Employees (NUEE), has asked that the Bureau of Public Enterprises (BPE), be excluded from being part of the process.

The union, which argued that a player cannot be a referee in his own game, insisted that the process must be devoid of bias, and free from offices capable of negatively influencing the outcome of the exercise.

NUEE also asked that the Federal Government worked with independent bodies, the public, relevant government agencies, and other stakeholders to properly review the performance of the DisCos under the management of core investors, with a view to properly evaluating their performances based on purchase agreements.
