█ NEPA installed quite a number of electricity meters in many buildings across the whole Nigeria
● in the 1970s
● in the 1980s
● in the 1990s
● in the 2000 A.D period uptil 2005? when it’s name was changed to PHCN
█ PHCN for it’s own bit continued in the path set by NEPA
and installed a number of electricity meters in many buildings across the whole Nigeria
UP UNTIL 2014? when it SOLD TO THE ELECTRICITY DISCOS
WHO THEN TOOK OVER THE WORK FUNCTION OF
SUPPLYING i.e DISTRIBUTING ELECTRICITY ACROSS NIGERIA.
█ now, Iggy absolute babe, get this one :
◙ these ELECTRICITY DISCO FOLKS then began to do stuff like
going to buildings where there is a good, functioning meter in place
… either installed by PHCN or NEPA or ECN …
◙ and ISSUING ESTIMATED BILLS
.. ESTIMATED ? yes, Iggy ohbee nm, ESTIMATED BILLS
to the occupants of these buildings
even in-spite of the reality that the meter is working very well
and the readings are there for all to see
◙ and dis-connecting such folks from the electricity grid if they failed to pay the ESTIMATED BILLS
◙ and also intimidating? .. terrorizing? .. coercing ? .. and frightening? the occupants of such buildings into
applying for the NEW-MODEL PRE-PAID METERS
which they – the ELECTRICITY DISCOS themselves – supply? i.e sell to electricity users
under the by-force? coercion? that
if they want to stop paying estimated bills then they should buy and install the new pre-paid meters
( let’s not get into this one here right now, Iggy aezeegboh ornyeh nnkeh nm.
let’s just say here that if you google this one
you will probably see the reaction of
Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari
to this pre-paid meters issue
you will also probably see earlier? commentary of
Nigeria’s former Minister for Power, Works and Housing,
Barrister Raji Fashola
on the pre-paid meters issue )
█ the thing is that all of this has quite been in the open.
the thing is that all of this has been quite out there in the open.
the thing is that all of this has been quite out there for all the entire Nigeria public to see.
rather brazen?, isn’t it ?
sort of like ? the body language of the electricity discos is insinuating? that there’s nobody that can do anything to us. even Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari cannot do anything to us and anybody whosoever that he appoints as Minister of Power including the present Minister of Power Alhaji Sale Mamman cannot do anything to us.
sort of like? the body language of the electricity discos is displaying? that they are above? the law in Nigeria.
sort of like? the body language of the electricity discos is implying? that they can do whatever they like in Nigeria and nothing and nobody can stop them and nothing will happen.
and sort of like? their body language is demonstrating? that they can do whatever they wish and even Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari cannot do anything to them and anybody whosoever that he appoints as Minister of Power including the present Minister of Power Alhaji Sale Mamman cannot do anything to them.
and, Iggy nnkeh nm, this open nature of these happenstances
.. this open-ness of these happenstances ..
.. this right out there in the open nature of these happenstances ..
also contribute to making one wonder :
► is it legal ?
► is it a lawful practice ?
► is it fair ?
► is it fair to electricity users in Nigeria ?
► is it a fair practice ?
► is it a practice acceptable to the laws of
the Federal Republic of Nigeria regarding how
companies operating in the Nigeria Area should comport themselves
carry out their activities especially with regards to
◙ Good Community Relations / Good Community Relationships ?
◙ Good Corporate Governance ?
◙ Best Practice Proceedures ?
