Report on Hydro-Dams Leads to Improved Infrastructure in Niger State
September 29, 2018 | Grantee Publications | On Nigeria

Residents in Makurdi, Nigeria faced exploitative and inconsistent electricity billing practices, an investigative report by Daily Trust revealed. As a result of the report, Jos Electricity Distribution revised its practices to stabilize electricity access and improve the accuracy of billing. Community members report that they have less erratic electricity flows and that the exorbitant bills have declined in frequency since the reporting. MacArthur’s support for Daily Trust, through the Daily Trust Foundation, aims to help strengthen the capacity of investigative and data-driven journalism in Nigeria, with a focus on corruption.
