Improve your services or quit, Fashola tells DISCOs

Minister of Works, Power and Housing, Babatunde Fashola on Monday told electricity distribution companies in the country to either improve their service delivery or quit business.

Fashola gave the warning at the opening ceremony of the 11th Monthly Stakeholders meeting in Lagos.
