The unfair power distribution in Alimosho local government

Posted: Apr 2, 2015 at 6:31 am   /   by   /   comments (0)

I am a resident of Orisunbare in Alimosho Local Government Area of Lagos State and want to bring to your notice the epileptic and unfair power distribution in the area. Middle of December 2014, we celebrated with great funfair the commissioning of the Orisunbare Sub Station which was expected to ease the lack of power distribution we had been suffering for wee years. We enjoyed very good power supply from 15th Dec- Mid January, then, normal services resumed.

For no reasons, we have been deprived of light and yet astronomical bills have been presented for us to pay. On more than one occasion, i have persuaded and encouraged a fellow landlord to pay their bills,but for how long can we actually continue to pay for services not rendered? That is now tantamount to day light robbery.

The now usual trend of providing power towards the tail end of the month or the week where bills are distributed is disgusting and a practice that should not exist in Nigeria. Consumers are not fools and we will not stand for it going forward.

I personally have a payment not credited to my account even after several mails and even delivered a complaint letter to your ‘’ PONLE OFFICE ‘’, till today my credit has not been passed into my account.

In the last few weeks i have noticed with dismay how in the late evenings and early mornings, Orisunbare Bus Stop axis which houses the Baale’s residence, a popular Estate, the market and commercial shops have always had light, while the rest of Orisunbare is enveloped in total darkness when we clearly share the same power source.

This maybe unknown to you hence i am bringing it to your notice so you can introduce monitoring teams to evaluate/ authenticate my claims while i also urge the relevant authorities to see to it that Power is provided adequately and responsibly, i will continue to scream until my complaints see the light of the day and get to the relevant authorities.
