The Minister of Power, Adebayo Adelabu, has summoned the Chief Executives of Abuja Electricity Distribution Company (AEDC) and Ibadan Electricity Distribution Company (IBEDC), stating that wilful non- performance by any DISCO could attract severe punishment or outright license revocation.


Adelabu in a statement by his media aide, Bolaji Tunji.said he will meet with the discos next week, adding that the Managing Director of the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN), Sule Ahmed Abdulazeez, has also been summoned over the deteriorating power situation.


According to the minister, findings revealed that some distribution companies were deliberately not taking up power supply from TCN while some power lines were also damaged by vandals in Abuja, Benin, Port Harcourt and Ibadan regions.


Tunji said that despite the shortage of gas, the ministry has been putting pressure on the Generating Companies (GENCOs) to improve performance and generation has been ramped up to over 4000MW in recent days.
