Kaduna Electric Disconnects Shehu Shagari's Home Over Unpaid Bills by dre11(m): 3:43pm On Jan 21
The Kaduna Electricity Distribution Company on Wednesday disconnected the home of the late Shehu Shagari, the Second Republic President of Nigeria, over unpaid bills to the tune of over N6 million.

The former president died on December 28, 2018 at the age of 93.

Confirming the disconnection of Sama Road, Sokoto home of the late president to DAILY NIGERIAN, the spokesman for the company, Abdulaziz Abdullahi, said the bill has not been paid since Mr Shagari’s death.

“The company has given enough grace for them to settle the bills before the disconnection,” said Mr Abdullahi.

A family source told Daily Star, a Sokoto-based online newspaper, that prior to Mr Shagari’s death, the state government footed the electricity bills of the former leader.

“Just a few days ago, KAEDCO officials presented an electricity bill, which they said we had pay or get our electricity disconnected.

“We told them that the tradition has been that the state government usually paid the bills and not us, but they said that doesn’t concern them,” said the source.

A Sokoto State Government official who spoke to the newspaper on the condition of anonymity however said it is unfair to blame the state government but the federal government.

“You know the welfare of the late president’s family rests solely on the federal government, if the state government assists, it is just out of compassion and respect for the late president,” said the source.

So children of Shehu Shagari no fit pay NEPA bills?

Buhari why?

But on a serious note, I do not blame the electricity company because they are a private organization and when they are to pay tax, no one would listen to them if they complain that Shehu Shagari family didn't pay bills.

But don't the family have a business they own? All things being equal, they should own chains of businesses that they should be able to pay 6 million naira without blinking an eye.

For goodness sake it's their father who was president and not them. The man is dead now, they should be able to handle their sh*t.

Same thing is happening to the family of former Vice President Alex Ekwueme. Nobody send them again.

I think that Shagari's pension alone should have made the family comfortable. This is exactly why Nigerian leaders embezzle public fund.

President Shagari died in December 2018.

That puts his monthly electricity bill at 250,000 naira or close to 10,000 naira per day -- for a house that doesn't get 24-hour electricity.

How much does it cost to run a generator for a day?

Buhari can do well by footing the bills. At least, he is the reason Shagari never completed his presidency.

Let justice prevail. If he owes bills. It should be disconnected. I hope the action is not politically influenced though. This is Nigeria.
