Nigeria In One Minute

No prepaid meter, no payment of electricity bills, consumers threaten EKEDC

Electricity consumers in Ijeshatedo in SuruLere Local Government Area, Lagos State, have threatened not to pay their monthly electricity bills to the Eko Electricity Distribution Company (EKEDC) until it installed prepaid meters in their houses.

They told newsmen in Lagos in separate interviews that they were tired of paying estimated bills, while the neighbouring communities enjoyed minimal charges on their prepaid meters.

Mr Eniola Taiwo, a resident of Ogunlana Street, told pressmen that electricity consumers in the area were usually served outrageous bills ranging from N10, 000 to N35, 000 monthly.

Taiwo, also the General Secretary of the Ogunlana Community Development Association, said that the association had written several letters to the management of EKEDC, which manages the area.
