Attention, Benin Electricity Company
SIR: I hereby call the attention of Benin Electricity Company to the anomalies being perpetrated by its office in Ikole-Ekiti. I refer to the exploitation of the people and residents of Ikole-Ekiti through what I call criminal shedding of electricity.
I believe that before the company can shed power, it should be with prior notice to the client/customer. Secondly, the method used in shedding is such that there will be epileptic power supply for a day and the following day there will be total blackout. This will amount to supplying epileptic power for just 15 days in a month without corresponding reduction in the monthly bill.
I feel this criminal act should be checked and corrected. The staff should not skin the customers in order to make profit. The era of logical stealing and exploitation should be over by now as the electricity distribution company now belongs to private body which is expected to promote the culture of transparency and integrity.
