Abstract

National Electric Power Authority (NEPA) staff could not believe when the President first promised to privatize NEPA by handing it over .. to the Power Holding Company of Nigeria (PHCN) because "successive govern~1cnts had promised and failed". When President Obasanjo finally set up a committee to effect the transfer, he was 'castiga~e:Ct'as a ' wicked President. The workers have failed to accept responsibility for · constant power failure which negates the political and cconomic1raison· d'etrc' for establishing NEPA and other public corporations like SONEL 1 in Cameroon. Despite the fact that the paper took exceptions in blaming the Government for not supplying the necessary finances to help the workers improve their services, it however, opines that NEPA workers have not only failed the nation, they -have failed themselves because most of them would be retrenched as a result of the privatization and commercialization exercise of puplic corporations. Th~ paper concludes that for. the P;resident to rescind his decision of privatizing NEPA, the W9rkers should try to be transparent, polite and, responsive. to custon1ers' demands.
