2021 Budget: NERC seeks N2b for office partitioning, furniture

The Nigeria Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) on Wednesday said it would require N2 billion in the 2021 budget to partition and furnish its headquarters in Abuja.

Mr James Momoh, the Chairman of the Commission, said this when he appeared before the House of Representatives Committee on Power to defend the commission’s 2021 budget proposal.

The NERC Chairman said the partitioning and furnishing of the eight-floor headquarters building became necessary to make the building befitting and conducive after it was acquired.

He said works on the building were ongoing which made the commission to propose fundings for it in the 2020 and 2021 budgets.

Momoh told the committee that the commission was unable to spend all the money released to it for the project in the 2020 budget because of COVID–19 pandemic.

The committee, therefore, demanded to know the total contract sum needed to complete the partitioning and furnishing of the office, but the commission was unable to provide same.

The committee expressed worry that the commission was seeking N2 billion to partition and furnish office in 2021 budget, but could not say what the contract sum was.

However, Rep. Magaji Aliyu, Chairman of the Committee, threatened to delete the request from the 2021 budget proposal.

Said he: “if you do not have the contract sum, we will delete it from the budget.

“You have only one line item and you came unprepared.”

Aliyu told the NERC chairman to go back and bring the total contract sum
