We have only had electricity supply twice in my area in 2015.
1st Time: January 2 ( for about 7 hours)
2nd Time: January 4 (for about 1 hour)
It has been 100% darkness since then.
I returned home today to see electricity bill from PHCN/IBEDC. For what? I’m naturally infuriated. Calls, visits and entreaties to them for electricity supply were to no avail.
They do not care.
At least we had electricity supply that hovered around 40% in 2014 (one-day-on, one-day-off — our ‘on day’ was never for 24 hours).
We were forced to pay; and we gladly pay fully for abnormal services in 2014.
Now we are expected to pay for 100% darkness in 2015.
Where is the government and the regulating agencies?
The government told us better days lie ahead of electricity privatization. Now we pay for nothing because they are the secret buyers.
Are we going to continue this way?
