Did The National Assembly Finally Okay The Increase In Electricity Tariff? by Nobody: 4:23pm On Mar 08, 2016
My people have a common saying that a man who is of the habit of asking questions rarely misses his way. Last month the news was all over the internet that the Nigerian Senate ordered that the planned 40% increase in power tariff by NERC be reversed. My first question is; did the senate finally accede to the NERC's decision to hike the tariff? was the senate only making a suggestion? or does FG have the power to overrule the senate's directive for the increase to be reversed? I'm lost because the bill i just received from Enugu Disco (EEDC) just reflected the tariff increase as well as the ever sardonic unmetered fixed phantom consumption. The bills (Images attached below) shows a 40% increase from what i received last month. Please can someone help counsel me?

And that's not to mention that the energy consumption for my office space in a non-urban area had gradually increased from 150units to 300units over the past couple of months. How the estimated consumption is even calculated is "secret society code" because no one seems to know the criteria for estimating the power consumption for a particular building. I have complained without any meaningful solution from the local EEDC office here.

And this is not all, the bill you are seeing below is bill for energy "Unused", yes, you read right. I hardly had power for up to 2 hours a day for the entirety of last month, sometimes there were outages for 2-3days at a stretch. The last time i tried to take this up with the local marketer here, he proudly told me that they were instructed to allot bills to customers based on the value of energy imported, whether the energy got to us or not, which begs the question where in the world do consumers pay for goods/services that ended up with the manufacturer/wholesaler? I thought basic economics is that one pays for satisfaction derived from the services rendered?

All the talks about getting meters whether prepaid or postpaid has forever being mere lip service, which by the way i think is a deliberate action by these people to keep extorting us. Judging by how much power i got last month my bill for the month shouldn't have being up to 200naira even at the current tariff.

I really don't know how to deal with this. This whole thing is just very frustrating, I may not understand the processes and how these things go, but i sure know to understand if someone explains to me. I therefore beckon on those who do to weigh in, lemme actually understand what is going on.

This government is arbitrary. The dead brain leaders are above any law. Even if the court gives an order stopping increase of Tariff, I don't see this underfed Daura Animal compel his agencies to obey.

Nonsense

Help me ask them o, this Fashola sef, he should better know what he's doing. The new tariff is freaking insane. The fixed charge of N750 per month is even better than this rubbish he did, and we go still use money buy fuel at N130 per liter to power gen. We must put an end to this exploitation.

I honestly don't mind the increase. I will pay 20k a month for 20 hours power supply. Currently paying 3-5k a month on prepaid metre and about 40k on generator a month. Makes no sense.

I believe senate doesn't have the power to stop the increment but can only advised because NERC is also backed by law that established them and this issue of increment has been approved by the 7th assembly and passed by law and that was why Fashola was saying his hand are tied. only court of law or FG can reserve it.

NASS is a toothless dog that barks only but can't bite. You should have rejected that bill and beat the hell out of that punk that brought silly crazy bill to you. On the issue of estimation, when you see a capital letter D printed on your bill it means you are under observation for estimation and if it is an E then you have been placed on full bill estimation. You must learn how to read the meter when the EEDC officer come around to read the bill and make sure you snap the meter to get the reading. So you can tackle those bastards head on. One funny lie told by these people is that your analogue meter is over 40 years old and it is not functioning well. It's all lie!

And for that Fashola who is hell bent in increasing the tarrif, he should make sure power has improve if not he should also charge us for using the sunlight for drying our clothes. Fake people
