  3. Good morning to you,
    This is to remind you that: Oseni Crescent, Ayobo area where we reside has been in darkness going beyond a week to date and no information regarding the situation has been communicated to us.
    I think we should at least know the challenges.
    Thank you.

      1. Good pm. I’am residing @Awobona street, off Raftech and Alkat street, Iju-Ishaga Lagos. Pls we need to know the problem with our light for almost 3months now, or may is u people that we offended, most of the houses around this area are prepaid customers. Even if there is a problem u people fail to carry us along, we’re just neglected as if we don’t exist. Pls we to the actual cause of our power outage for almost 3month and ur effort so far. Tnx.

  4. Good morning,
    Igbehinadun street before Asolo bus stop along Ägric road, ikorodu has been without light for weeks now. What is the problem?
    When will this zone be given the prepaid metre?

    1. The issuance of prepaid meters takes processes. It is issued Zonally, when it is time to issue prepaid meter to your Zone, you will definitely get yours.

  5. My landlady complained about one tenant in my house No. 33, Adeboye Str. Ilaje., Bariga that is leaving her house in Dec., 2016 and who is owing bills to Bariga Branch at the back of R-Jolad. They came to my our house to disconnect all the lights in the building. I went to Bariga Manager Mr. Benedict and informed him that I know my flat is owing but I will pay bit by bit N72,000 due to estimated bills they’re bringing for my flat. He refused that until I pay all my bills they’ll not connect my flat. Since Monday. 31st October, 2016, I don’t hv light in my flat. I am not yet living this house I think there should be dialogue on how I will pay this amount but he insisted that, it was order from above. There are a lot of houses on my str. owing more than me but nobody disconnected their light. Pls. kindly use yr good office to help me out. My marketer’s name is Eshua Patience who confirmed that they’ve coded my meter. That was the reason they’re giving my flat estimated bills.

  6. Good morning! going through this Porter now, I found out that registration for meter is free. Why then has your officials attached to mojoda/Araro community in Ikorodu Lagos been collecting as much as 8000 Naira from people for registration and yet did not register anyone, rather, come every end of the month without bill and extort money from people and when they refuse to pay disconnect light? This is the highest form of corruption I ve ever witnessed despite the war against corruption in this administration. Please and please let the change begin with Ikdc. Help us out in our community, this humiliation is too much. The marketer name is Balogun.Thank you.

    1. Yes Mr Abiola I’m reiterating my words that registration is absolutely free. If you have evidence of IKEDC officials extorting money from individuals in your area, kindly forward it via this medium and we take it up from there. Thanks.

  7. Good day , pls I reside at igi-olubgin street, owotutu, bariga and for about two weeks now we’ve not had light and yet at the end of the month we would still be expected to pay the light bill or have our light disconnected, I plead with your ikedc to do something about it as no reasonable reason has been given for not having light, pls do something about it and let’s have value for what we pay for.

  8. Good day,

  13. I stay in room and parlour self contain at 8,Adeniran Street Off Oriola Bus Stop ,Alapere Ketu. Your people bring ridiculous estimated bill especially the current bill which is N9000.00. For the past 2 weeks now there is no power supply and you expect people to pay their bills.
