As energy crisis in Nigeria worsen and the realization that electricity is an impetus for economic growth, increasing citizen access to electricity continue to maintain its prominence in the country and with the main emphasis moving from the gigantic, national electricity company toward a multi-player privatized market has led to a substantial transformation in the polices governing regulations of the power sector. This paper evaluates the regulatory agency mandate to monitor and regulate the electricity industry in the country so as to guarantee conformity with market rules and operating standards. The paper concludes that the effective development of electric power sector in the country hinges on the implementation of suitable public policies and the effective adoption of these policies that will provide stability, safeguard consumers from the manipulation of market power, protect consumers and operators against political dishonesty, and provides motivation for service providers to operate efficiently.
