Please help us with light in masaka area 1 akwanga please
Pls this is the bill that was conveyed to us yesterday for this month which has always been outrageous considering the fact that we don't use up to the energy that is billed to us... And to add to this another improptu and unecessary notice was attached with the bill compelling us to pay another amount that can not be explained or understood... Please i will like this issue amongt other issues adressed immediately as it is evident that EKEDC has been involving in fraudulent practices and incompetent to continue distributing power in this country
Good day,my name is Abdullahi Momoh Jimoh one of the customer of AEDC with contract number 20164325201,residing in Gwako before Gwagwalada - I pay my bills on time and usually over pay. Am not owing AEDC,the net arrears for June is -75.17 but to my surprise the net arrears for July is stating N12,940.76. plus the current bill which is N2,403.27. Making it N15,344.03 Now the big question is that,why will one just seat and formulate a figure,that is pure scam and a criminal act,their by violating the rules and tarnishing the image of AEDC. ,I will go to any length to correct this fraudulent act. Please do something.
Pls for 4month nw at agege amoo Ile pako face 2 we don't have like since dey too the transformer away up still nw power authority is doing anything about it.
Please, the management of the NERC should come to rescue the people of Isiuzo LGA in Enugu state. It's been ten days today that we had power supply last (last supply was 1st - 3r of July). This has always been the case since March, yet #4, 348.42 is extorted from every customer in the area. Moreso, from the same March, 2020, all R2S(single phase residential) tariffs were unjustly converted to R2T, which is supposed to be a tariff for customers on two or multiple phases. Please, let the appropriate authority come to our aid in this area because the extortion from the villagers by EEDC is out of control. This is a rural setting where majority of the people dependon peasant farming for survival, yet they are being unjustly charged by EEDC without supply.
