Following the transfer of power plants to private Distribution Companies (DISCOS) on November 1, 2013, the expectations of electricity consumers from the new investors are understandably high. We spoke with some of them…
My expectations are that our electricity supply would improve. Though it has increased drastically, we hope for the better because we all want to get to a situation where we don’t have to switch on our generator.
I hope it gets better, because in my area there has not been improvement. In fact, for about a week we haven’t had light at all. We always make use of the generator. So, I really hope and pray that electricity gets better.
I expect a better and stable electricity supply, good maintenance and quick repair when there is a problem. I also expect a quick response when any emergency call is made to them, good relationship and most importantly affordable tariff.
The basic thing is supply of steady power and affordable tariff. We should feel the positive impact of the handover.

What else can be my major expectation if not to bring us out of darkness.

All I require from them is maximum provision of uninterrupted power supply.
All I expect is that they give us good and constant electricity supply, our money’s worth.
I expect them to improve and get better, though I would be sincere and say that our electricity of late has been great. It has been constant.
It is a great development that the PHCN handed over to core investors. The major expectation is for core investors to live up to expectation by providing regular electricity. I just hope they don’t disappoint us.
It is good as PHCN handed over to core investors. We just have no choice but to embrace this change and hope for the best. My major expectation is for them to develop, provide and supply regular electricity.
It is a welcome development that the PHCN has been handed over to core investors, but the truth of the matter is that they may not be allowed to perform according to their intentions. So, handing over the PHCN to some group of people is not the end of everything. We still need to work towards ensuring proper handling of the sector.
Nigerians need uninterrupted supply of electricity, starting from 2014 and at affordable rate.
The handing over of PHCN to core investors is good but these investors are also Nigerians. No matter how much we expect from them, they are not likely to perform any wonder unless there’s full support from the federal government. But I would say we need adequate and stable supply of electricity before 2016 as being planned. We expect them to turn around the situation for the better.
We expect better service from them, And we hope they will not be bringing bills of service they didn’t render like the old PHCN used to do.
