Noneroone:
this is why they call you baboons and monkeys. There is erratic power supply throughout the country but the only people who have expressed the will to turn around their fortunes are now being blackmailed by you who have bigger problems. We know you will worshiped Emeka offor if You were us but we refuse to be exploited. Emeka offor's attitude has nothing to do with Biafra. He isa a bussinessman and bussinessmen are not charity workers. Bussinessmen have propensity to exploit but, it behoves on the people who constitute the bussiness environment to teach any exploitative organisation that they are not to be messed with. Oil companies apply caution in US but mess up your environment in Nigeria b'cos American people have shown them they have worth. This is what Biafrans in Enugu state assembly just did which Nigerians wont do. Nigerians will hide their worse problems, blackmail Biafrans with their minor problems and later jump into the lagoon for suicide. Pathetic!




...Spot on....These people are so myopic its not even funny...That was how they were foolef into believing that buhari is a 'messiah' who will take them to the promise land....As usual,Igbos were the only group who saw through buhari for the menace he was/is from the get-go and rejected him...

....Now a cattle route is being planned across the country under the Ministry of Agruculture,and Nigerians in the South can do nothing but wail on Social-Media and cuss buhari out..such a shame

This is one area where Obasanjo showed he was a better President than Jonathan.

If Jonathan had over seen the deregulation of telecoms we would still have Nigerian companies billing us to death and to call the next city would still be an ordeal.

Unfortunately Buhari is too focused on paddy-paddy government to seriously review the DISCOS deal and allow competent foreign firms to buy the DISCOS and take over.

Telecoms and Power are just two different animals!

OBJ spent billions of dollars on power without getting the job done. Jonathan did what he did, I guess to benefit us, but Buhari would have been the best person to build on the idea and review it until we get a permanent solution.

But Buhari...

I live in a 1 bedroom, self-contained. It was going fine until last year October, power bill skyrocketed from 1k+ to 4k+ . I just told them to come and cut my light.

I sent a mail to EEDC about the outrageous bills i get and you wont believe i have not been replied, not even an auto reply.

Emeka offor is using south east to enrich himself. Wicked people always milking the poor to stay rich.

God will punish anybody who is oppressing the poor and using them to fly in private jets.

Our law maker are a total failure because they all sit their stewpid a$$ and wait for us to protest before their money frozen brain starts working again.

Only if boko haram will centre their destruction on our currupt polithiefians, i will support them to bomb all to ashes.

Pray for their private jets to crash. Every thieving politician and those criminals that bought over NEPA must die a painful death.Their sickness must be cancer, diabetes, paralysis, liver problem,heart problem, long cancer problem, prostrate cancer and their likes,

No bros, from 6000MW in 2014 to 4000MW in 2017. Thanks to our dummy presido

Classic example of what I'm talking about. Nigeria has never averaged 6000MW. Even at 6000MW, we should be ashamed. It's not about APC or PDP but about every underutilized brain power out there. Imagine my friend when I was in unilag redesigned the model of the wind turbines then and gave a vital solution on how the school can be self reliant in the power sector. What do we have from the school now, reports show about 8 hours power per day, the students even protested for lack of electricity.

Let's question every politician bro and let's not settle with mediocrity, don't allow bias cloud your judgment, we deserve much more than we've ever had

Irked by what it called the outrageous billing and epileptic power supply, among other inhuman acts against electricity consumers in the state, the Enugu State House of Assembly on Friday asked the management of the Enugu Electricity Distribution Company (EEDC) to shut down its operations and vacate the state.

The lawmakers also asked electricity consumers in the state to stop further payment of over-bloated electricity bills, while asking that a state of emergency be declared in the activities of EEDC.

Other states in the south-east including Abia, Anambra, Enugu and Imo were also asked to take drastic action against the company by declaring state of emergency against them.

They also ordered the chairman of the company, Sir Emeka Ofor, and the managing director to appear before its six-man ad hoc committee to explain the company’s activities in the state.

This came as hundreds of electricity consumers in Enugu state early on Friday staged a protest to the House of Assembly over incessant power outage, outrageous billing, alarming tariff among other forms of alleged exploitative activities of the EEDC.

The protesters who displayed numerous placards with various inscriptions, had called on the lawmakers, to as a matter of urgency intervene on the issue while also demanding for the exit of the EEDC.

They claimed that the company since inception, had continued to make life unbearable for citizens of the state.

In adopting a five-point motion on matter of urgent important moved by Hon. Chinedu Nwamba representing Nsukka East State Constituency at a special sitting of the House, the lawmakers decried the activities of the Distribution Company, noting that rather than make lives meaningful for the people, it had continued to exploit the people.

The House urged the state government to liaise with the National Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) to validate the quality of the new metres they are currently supplying the public to know if the setting was commensurate with the unit consumption.

They also lamented the discriminatory billing system against Enugu and other states in the south east, adding that while Distribution Companies in Abuja and Lagos were charging less and distributing power, the EEDC had continued to exploit the people with high bills without providing the needed power supply.

Contributing to the motion, the Deputy Speaker, Hon. Donatus Uzogbado said the state was no longer ready to continue with EEDC adding “we have an endemic problem in our hands. The privatisation has become a bigger problem. We’ve entered a one-chance flying vehicle with an unknown destination. The billing system leaves a lot to be desired. I support the call for state of emergency, we don’t need EEDC any more here. I pass vote of no confidence on them”.

Speaking before setting up a six-man ad hoc committee to conduct public hearings in the three senatorial zones of the state, the Speaker, Edward Ubosi described the activities of EEDC as nothing short of “digital fraud”, adding that it had become so bad that electricity bill had become more than house rents.

The six-man ad hoc committee to conduct public hearing is headed by the Deputy Speaker, Uzogbado, with Honourables SKC Ude Okoye, Emeka Ogbuabor, Philip Nnamani, Chuka Eneh and Chinedu Nwamba.

Meanwhile, the spokesman for the protesters, Mr. Eze Ajuluchukwu, said we” are tired of this EDCC mess, and that is why we are calling on members of the Enugu state House of Assembly to rise up and do something about this ugly issue.

Eze, who described EDDC as an anti-human company, stressed that “we are giving them two options, it is either they give us electricity or they leave Enugu state.

The masses according to him, were being exploited on daily basis by EEDC, and by their actions, the company was sabotaging the economic growth of the state.

As at the time of filling this report, the protesters had occupied the Assembly complex, insisting that the State would no longer condone the activities of the EEDC.

The aggrieved electricity consumers equally asked the Federal Government to as a matter of urgency undertake a review of the privatization ‎of the power sector in Nigeria, as the EEDC lacked the capacity to manage electricity distribution in south- East Nigeria.

Some of the placards displayed by the protesters read thus: “EEDC stop defrauding us, pack your load and go” we are tired of irregular billing system”

“Our industries are folding on daily basis because of no power” we cannot take this anymore, Say no to EEDC”

“We can no longer stand and watch EEDC make us poor, they have forced many people out of their businesses” among other placards.

Anambra will never be part of this planned coup by some jealous states to take away the control of electricity distribution in Igboland from the hands of onye Anambra. Electricity problem is nationwide so nobody should pick on EEDC.
