This is a good news for us and I hope it will cut across all Discos My monthly payment of Electricity bill is higher than what I pay for house rent monthly. kedcoplc Hope this is clear. Gaskiyan magana kenan! Let me come and be sleeping.All the wahala I have been doing trying to get my prepaids under the debt recovery to no avail uptil now josdisco are asking me to go and do the MAP all afresh with still no guarantee to get the meter soon enough. It's 🚀science

bedc charged me 26,000+ for January alone and I like in a 3 bedroom flat. Here's the evidence. I pray this works. On paper I paid N5000 monthly but am always d first target in d area to be disconnected but those that give them N1000 bribes are free Until I see it being implemented, before I can start rejoicing over that. Welcome development! The way JED charges my compound is something to worry about, almost 12,000-15,000.

For the first time, I feel hopeful of our government. Thumbs up Ikeja electric (ie) bill my 4 rooms apartment almost N6,000 every month I paid 4k yesterday but not again come next month 💯✔️

NERC puts limits on Discos’ estimated billingIt's balls down another suffering foe us “A consumer of XYZ Disco resident in White Acre under R2 (single phase) tariff class has an energy cap of 78 kilowatt-hour per month and a tariff of N42 per kilowatt-hour. The maximum that XYZ Disco can invoice such a customer is 78kWhr x N24/kWhr = N1,872 per month,” NERC said. IkejaElectric IBEDC_NG band all other power distribution company I hope you all adopt this with immediate effect.

rainvulx I hope it works o Excellent! But will it effect across? Minna on my mind. Get ready guys. Your meters are on the way. Irrespective of the level of consumption of the customer? What if the building houses a micro business such as welding shop? This is a recipe for disaster for the DisCo. It is simply wrong!!!

This guys bills a flat 6k every month. IkejaElectric take note. Good move, I hope they will follow it up by monitoring their Billings. My residence is currently on 24,000 per month. What a news. Thank u NERC if not the bills is to much Cc aedcelectricity Please take note. Good directive but who monitors compliance?

Nigeria’s Electricity Problem: FG vs. DISCOs By Reuben Abati | Sahara ReportersThe Buhari government simply needs to move beyond politics and sentiments. If President Buhari succeeds in solving the electricity supply conundrum in Nigeria, that alone will be enough legacy for his administration. For a writer of Reuben Abati's caliber to twit on electricity generation, transmission and distribution and get only one retwitt and 12 likes is probably and indication that readers don't buy his deliberate refusal to discuss the real issues.

Excellent! But would this effect across? Minna on my mind. Enforce this we are paying as much as 10k in Minna Niger State capital If they can abide by this, it's a good development Excellent!!! Good move! No enforcement. If you don't pay their Bills then be ready for darkness Who will enforce this? Waste of time, zero implementation. Toothless Bulldog

Sweet!

Nigeria’s Electricity Problem: FG vs. DISCOs - THISDAYLIVETUESDAY WITH REUBEN ABATI Here is the main problem with Nigeria’s electricity sector: Nigeria is Africa’s most populous nation, but it has failed consistently to generate, transmit and distribute enough electricity to power its development process and accelerate economic growth. Between 1999 and 2007, President Olusegun Obasanjo focused on the reform of the electricity sector … whoever that write this is a dumb you just write a long essay without any solution

Nigeria’s Electricity Problem: FG Vs. DisCos, By Reuben Abati - Premium Times OpinionIt seems to me that government needs to go beyond scapegoating, passing the buck, sentiments and politics, to addressing fundamental problems of the electricity sector. I took time to read Dr Abati. Summary of it is that govt should privatize the remaining assets of the old NEPA and all the problem of the electricity will be a thing of the past. My question is,the part of it that was privatized,of what value is it as of today looking at Discos?
