Indiscriminate and insensitive billing by Ikeja DISCO

Sir: It is quite appalling the way consumers are being indiscriminately and insensitively charged for electricity not utilized. Despite the fact that power supply has been very epileptic in the past months, electricity bill has continued to be outrageously on the high side.

In many neighborhoods, we experience low shedding as it is called, a case whereby you have electricity for a particular number of days and no electricity for the other days. Cumulatively in a month we have electricity supply for 12 days or even less out of the 31 days in a month.

I am sincerely appealing to our state governor, His Excellency Akinwunmi Ambode to please come to our aid and save us from these fraudulent practices. Let them as a matter of urgency put in place the promised prepaid meters so we can pay for only what is consumed or find a way of accurately charging consumers with post-paid meters what is actually consumed month. This exploitation must be stopped once and for all.

    Can any governor in Nigeria listen to a consumer’s complaint? A flat-rate system applies in the rural areas irrespective of amount of electricity – if any – consumed.
