Story

BACKGROUND:

Reisdents of Ughelli, in Ughelli North Local Government Area in Delta State, has suffered great maltreatment for consistent black-out and being forced to pay huge sums known as estimated Bills and equal for all.

The Niger Delta Women's movement for Peace and Development has taken the pain of coreecting anomallies sine 2010.

After series of letters written , and copies to the Police Area Commander PHCN managed to change for a short period and the problem re-occured.

This time around for them to be able to to super impose bills on residents, Ughelli residents where faced with a two month black out, and with this they where able to bring out the huge bills.

At the Niger Delta Women resource centre, electricity bills are usally maximum of N1,000 and minimum N500 by meter reading, but just immediately after the 2 months black out, phcn issue a bill of N10000 for the Centre,and N15,000 for residents. This was the case for all residents, women protested, and NDWPD took up the case using our bills as reference.

The case is still underway, but the management is still finding its way , and the illegal inflation continues in other parts of Ughelli, because PHCN feels that we do not cover those areas.

Attached is the last correspondence to PHCN
