CITATION OF Joseph Jibueze

WINNER OF THE ENERGY REPORTING CATEGORY


Joseph Jibueze’s two-report is a scathing account of the rot in the energy sector and what is required to bring about succour. It captures the rage of consumers expressed in office blockades of electricity distribution companies over poor service delivery occasioned by erratic billing, epileptic power supply, and weak regulation. It is a well researched report that reflects the views of consumers, consumer advocacy groups, regulators and legislators. It details the struggle over tariff increase, calls for efficient service delivery that considers other components of the value chain in the energy business of generation, transmission and distribution.
