Deputy President of the Senate, Ovie Omo-Agege has come out to say that the Federal Government is very committed to ending the estimated billing syndrome in the nation’s power sector.
He recently revealed this at the groundbreaking ceremony of the Power Sub-Station in Orogun, Ughellli North Local Government Area of Delta.
According to him, this is what President Muhammadu Buhari and members of the National Assembly want because all over the world, the citizens pay for the energy consumed.
He added that the only obligation government has is to provide the enabling environment for the electricity to be made available.
His words, “I remind the Benin Electricity Distribution Company (BEDC) of its obligation to customers and the government regarding the mass metering initiative of the Federal Government aimed at ending the era of estimated billing syndrome.”
“That is what President Muhammadu Buhari and members of the National Assembly want.”
“All over the world, you pay for the energy you consumed. The only obligation government has is to provide the enabling environment for it to be made available.”
“President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration is currently making significant effect aimed at reducing energy poverty that has over the years impacted negatively on the economic development and public health.”
“The objective has been to ensure that the number of people who used modern energy should increase to reduce social cost than to increase social benefits.”
“The establishment of this power sub-station is one of the several initiatives of this administration aimed at addressing the energy poverty in our nation.”
“Earlier, we have leverage on the vision of this administration in the power sector to provide transformers to several communities in our Senatorial District to improve the energy availability and supply to our people.”
“We have already provided Solar-power street lights across most communities in Delta Central Senatorial District.”
