Only for those using prepare meter, a special token will be generated and be given to you that will expire after two months Lol with actually electricity? Ba masan free things...with our money NEPA is doing us shakara...imagine if they are ask to give the electricity for free...hmm. In another story, the money (cheques) to cover all expenses by FG got burnt in the AGF office. That included the vouchers for prepaid meter users

M_Raphindadi Karyar Banza When EKEDP has given us even 5hours power supply for 3 days AudioElectricity 😆😆😆😆😆😆 All na Audio talks oo Now wait a minute ! Does the gesture include guaranteed & uninturrupted Electricity supply? Whats d point of any 'free',that doesnt guarantee light? Lol Electricity that won't be on

U think this will work in Nigeria 24hrs light will never happen in Nigeria, not even in this buhari scam regime Na big lie But dey just sent me my bill this morning. Abi I no follow? This is great,thanks. We'll save ds How would people with prepaid meters enjoy the free light when our meters run on units?.

This is a terrible mistake, already they have stopped supplying us electricity in Epe for the past 6 days and just supplied tonight but has been going off and on Please we didn’t want it please they should tell us what is going on in this country Rinsole_T Free and stable ooo if not you people should just bring NEPA bill. We ain't complaining.

Great🙏 thanks! ItzPatrick1 That's two month, we will just here gas line don explode ... Electricity supply will be best to zero... Awon oniyeye We that are using Prepaid metres nko PLACNG Since that lockdown no light, we have been in darkness, our NEPA wee dee on strike for security reason, the Cork have not come to Nigeria self we are dying,, oh God save us ,Nigeria is a joke... Thunder fire eedc

Simple. NEPA no go bring light again kpatapkata. That is with the flash wey dem dey flash am b4 dey no go see light again. We that use prepaid nko? By reading all these comments, I now understand that we Nigerians are enemy of this country, why can't you people wait and see the result before accusing them. You people taught every regime can be like GEJ regime, God forbid

People weh bring bill for my compound today! There is nothing like free electricity in my area, it is free darkness rather, this policy simply means I won't pay for darkness for two months, anyways congrats to those areas who may enjoy it There's absolutely no effect on this agreement, electricity bill was brought to me today.

Una try. What about food ? These governments sucks.A government of weakling We wey de use prepaid nko What difference does it make When the power supply is inconsistent Been home days without light Free two months and we pay later through terrific hiking That means there will be no light for 2 months. In as much as they will not turn around and charge three months bill at once, when they resume billing. Discos don't have free in their dictionary.

Light wey we no dey see Am looking forward to see how this thing will work, especially for users with prepaid meters. And I pray the light doesn't get any worst during this period! Where is the electricity Maybe prepaid will disconnect and go direct for two months or how? Audio We should Expect total blackout , am sure Nigerians wouldn't enjoy it

Big scam I don't trust them ,where is the light please ? How? When my prepaid is still running. Exam question please we need explanation Mark my words, after two months months the bill will come out with 2 month which suppose not to be counted Yeye news.. Mtcheeew O now see why there is no electricity since yesterday

Koni daa fun won still we have not even see a twinkle of light for area . No Wonder there is no supply since Farouk_Belloo maindabawa KbashArch mune da godiya Idan Hakan ta faru From which month? Cos I have paid for March 2020. And is prepaid users among as well? Are we suppose to celebrate for 2months free electricity, even though we due for it🤔

1. Will people using prepaid meters be given free vouchers? 2. Will there be light? Audio Electricity. Commendable. Nah lie and even the light no dey since morning After una don chop 2trillio. So na free electricity una won use close our mouth. Light wey dy no dy bring . U don't even av the Megawat. They should stop my prepaid meter from running ooooo

Awoof dey run belle. How anout those with prepaid meters? Will they give us free tokens? This people are bastard shaa....where the light self..🤣🤣 What of people using prepaid meter Not achievable. And those using prepaid meters n co Light that we don't see How will it be... We won't recharge our prepaid meter or?

See gist mbok. Who nah want scam nah? Allah yabada sa'a Buhari For real? Wow! This is interesting.
