I am an occupant of a two-bedroom flat with meter number 05-5126163701 (now 0100700178) in the Ilupeju area of Lagos. The essence of this public complaint to the IKEDC authorities using this medium is to seek public intervention and expose the injustice of Ikeja Electric over the exorbitant electricity bills on my flat for the past four years.
Having laid several complaints over the years at the IE office in Ilupeju for intervention, it is disheartening that none of the officials was able to provide any solution claiming they are just implementing the management’s decision.
In order to put an end to this, on December 20, 2018, I paid the sum of N100, 000 for a prepaid meter to be issued after 60 working days. Up till date, I have yet to receive any feedback from IE rather, I keep receiving estimated bills.
Accordingly, I hereby bring the IE Ilupeju injustice to the attention of its management, the Nigerian Electricity Regulator Commission as well as the entire public as the recurrent exorbitant charges have become and remain a huge pill to swallow for me. I will exercise all legal options as may be available under the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria if nothing is done as expected after this open letter. Enough is enough.
