Fashola Warns DISCos: Stop Blackmailing Federal Government
Responding to the newspaper advertorials that the DisCos have been running under its umbrella body, Association of Nigerian Electricity Distributors (ANED), he said the group was being economical with the truth.
He accused ANED of failing to tell Nigerians that each of the DisCos has not presented the alleged debt profile to the Federal Government.
Fashola spoke at the monthly power sector meeting in Ikot Ekpene, Akwa Ibom State. He insisted that debts are paid by quantification but not by estimation.
He reminded them that the privatisation exercise that handed over the assets to the power companies was between the government and each separate DisCos and not through an association.
