Lockdown easing: you can start paying your outstandings now – Electricity distribution company

  • Barely few hours after Nigerians trooped out into the streets as a result of the gradual easing of the 5-week lockdown by the Federal Government of Nigeria on Monday, 4th of May, 2020; Ikeja Electricity Distribution Company has reminded its defaulting consumers to ensure their outstanding bills are paid to avoid being cut-off.

 

This was contained in a  statement made available by the management of the company via its official Twitter page, @ikejaElectric.

 

“Throughout the period of the lockdown, Ikeja Electric focused on increasing supply while suspending disconnection of customers who were yet to settle their bills. This showed our understanding of the challenges posed by the current realities.

 

However, as we begin partial lockdown, we use this medium to inform our customers of the need to start paying their bills to avoid power cuts as we have also lifted the suspension of disconnection activities”.

 

It will be recalled that the House of Representatives had before the lockdown passed a stimulus law which would allow Nigerians to enjoy 2-months free electricity supply.
