Nigeria’s former Minister of Communication Technology, Omobola Johnson has taken to Twitter to lash out at the Eko Electricity Distribution Company, EKEDC for giving her office an estimated bill of N29,000 during the Covid-19 lockdown.
In her tweet, she says I “Got back to my office on Tuesday after 6 weeks of lockdown to see April bill from @EKEDP for N29k! Not even a light bulb came on in the whole month. Then they had the audacity to disconnect the power because I refused to pay! This estimated billing nonsense really has to stop“.
When taken up by one of her followers on Twitter that there are statutory charges even when power is not delivered or utilised, Johnson said “Yes there is a minimum amount. My monthly electricity bill is between N20k and N25k. This April bill is the highest I have received in 4 years!“
Johnson was Minister of Communication Technology between 2011 and 2015 under the President Goodluck Jonathan administration. She is currently the Honorary Chairperson of the global Alliance for Affordable Internet.
