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!
