In case you didn’t know, NEPA stands for Never Expect Power Again National Electric Power Authority, the defunct power regulatory body in Nigeria. In 2005, it was renamed to PHCN which stands for Please Hold a Candle Now Power Holding Company of Nigeria.
In 2013, PHCN seized to exist after its assets were sold to private companies. The Nigerian Electricity Regulation Commission (NERC) was formed in its stead. PHCN was then divided into several distribution companies, but two things remained the same, the name NEPA and… no light!
