The Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) yesterday  issued the Abuja Electricity Distribution Company (AEDC) a notice of enforcement action over what it described as ‘manifest and flagrant breaches’ of approved methodology for estimated billing of electricity consumers, The Nation reports.

Its Head, Public Affairs Department, Dr. Usman Abba Arabi in a statement yesterday, said the notice is a follow up to previous investigations and forensic observations of electricity distribution companies’ operations through which an unusual increase in estimated billings of electricity consumers were observed within the last quarter of last year by NERC.

AEDC and some others were subsequently invited to give explanations for the unusual increase in estimated billings.
