Kebbi PHCN (NEPA) is the most useless – By Auwal Tambuwal


The national power provider in Nigeria
popularly called NEPA now PHCN is probably
the most
useless government company or
organization in Africa, if not in the world.
Power supply is almost absent despite
billions of dollars earmarked for this
company annually. The problem with NEPA
has been treated in several years, for 2012
and 2013 there was a subsidy of #50billion
for the less privillage people that consume
50kilowatts or less per month. With charges
of #4 per kilowatthour, if MULTI YEAR TERRIF
ODER (MYTO) is with subsidy and people in
Abuja are paying #11.74k, kaduna #12.79k,
Benning #11.37k and Jos #12.99k, then we
R2 in Tambuwal now pays #12.69 with
difference of #1.5k from that of Abuja is that
a fair to us?

Power supply in Nigeria is worse than a
Every Nigerian family/ household now has a
generator. The size, numbers and quality of
your generator is even a revelation of your
economic strength. Therefore generators
have names and one popular one is “I pass
my neighbor”. I pass my neighbor is one the
smallest generators you can buy and if your
neighbor doesn’t have any, definitely you
are richer than him/her.
What is even worse is that you will pay
monthly for electricity bills whether you have
used it or not. PHCN (NEPA) is a government
in Nigeria that is duping the people of
billions of naira across the country everyday.
Sometimes you can have electricity for 2 or 3
days only in a month, yet your bill will be on
the rise. PHCN (NEPA) forces you to pay
anyway. Having meter does not qualifies you
to escape their track. Allah ya isa, the
option is that PHCN (NEPA) can “cut” your light
that you are deprived of resting your
generator for those (2 or 3 days) of
interrupted power supply.
PHCN (NEPA) is one of the biggest woes in
Among other national calamities in Nigeria
PHCN (NEPA) is a clear revelation of the total
absence of intelligence among the evil ruling
Some countries in the world have had
uninterrupted power supplies for hundreds
of years and Nigeria cannot boast of 24
hours of uninterrupted power. In Tambuwal
hadly we have 15minuts uninterrupted, in
must time they end in dameging our
appliances. PHCN (NEPA)
rulers are fools to the core.
They are all thieves.
Before 1999 it was the same story in
Tambuwal but
things got worse under the current Business
manager kebbi zone
There is no sense in kebbi PHCN.
On what will the economy rest? What is the
backbone of technology, science,
innovations, growth and development if not
constant power supply?
There are no genuine commitments from
PHCN management to tackle our problem. A
serious embarrassed. Not Kebbi PHCN where
fools control electricty
all the time, It’s a shame, a disgrace beyond
human comprehension.
The kind of power supply in Tambuwal and
its environs does
not correlate with the fact that people pay
bills for electricity. By now the Business
manager kebbi unit
should be so ashamed to even
ask people of Tambuwal and it’s environs to
continue to pay PHCN (NEPA) bills.
The way things are in Tambuwal, people
not be paying for electricity until it is
constant and assuring.
In my opinion this is a great scandal and it
qualifies PHCN (NEPA) to be the worst
agency in the world today.
