The Ikeja Electricity Distribution Company (IKEDC) has announced a reduction in the tariff payable by its Band A customers to N206.80 per kilowatt-hour, down from the N225/kWh previously approved by the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC).

The spokesperson for IKEDC, Olufadeke Omo-Omorodion, disclosed this in a notice on Monday, stating that the downward tariff review would take effect from Monday, May 6, 2024.


IKEDC assured customers on Band A feeders of a minimum of 20-hour daily power supply and confirmed that the tariffs for customers on other bands would remain unchanged.

In the notice, IKEDC stated, “Dear Esteemed Customers, please be informed of the downward tariff review of our Band A feeders from N225/kWh to N206.80/kWh effective 6th May 2024 with guaranteed availability of 20-24hrs supply daily. The tariff for Bands B, C, D, and E remains unchanged.”

The revision of the electricity tariff for Band A customers by NERC on April 3 had increased the tariff from N68 per kilowatt-hour to N255/kWh, affecting only Band A customers. This move had led to complaints from Band A consumers, who argued that the tariff hike was financially burdensome and called on the Federal Government to reverse the policy.

During an investigative hearing before the Senate Committee on Power last week Monday, the Minister of Power, Adebayo Adelabu, warned that there could be a total blackout in the country within the next three months if the electricity tariff hike was not implemented.
