Every Nigerian pays N625 ‘Fixed Charge’ monthly to power distribution companies.

It is included in the bill every electricity consumers pay. And you get to pay it, even when you don’t get power for the original bill. 

You pay it whether you use prepaid metre, analog metre or you are on fixed consumption billing.

Our government knows this, and allows it.

Ironically, many Nigerians don’t even know they are being ripped off by private companies (aided by the government).

I believe the government allows this because these companies are owned by them (those in power).

Can these companies pay salary, allowances, etc. to somebody who is not working for them?

That’s what best described the issue of ‘Fixed Charge’ Nigerians pay.

Every Nigeria should say NO to this official robbery!

    I fought the officials twice over this; how can a private company charge you for the service you did not receive? In my friend office he will need to pay certain amount of money on the meter to clear it , the previous occupant talk about how he could not consume what he paid due to lack of power supply. This is a prepaid meter, for God sake where do the deficit come from?

      The unfortunate things is that the govt actually allows it.

      Who do we complain to if the govt expressly give them the power to cheat Nigerians?

      Except we help ourselves, we have no govt that cares about us.
