Nigerians Won’t Pay Estimated Billing For Electricity If I’m President – Tinubu

Bola Ahmed Tinubu, presidential candidate of the All Progressive Congress (APC), says the issue of estimated billing for electricity will become a thing of the past if he becomes president.

Speaking at luncheon with business owners titled ‘business forward’ on Thursday in Lagos, Tinubu also said Nigerians will not have to deal with the challenge of multiple foreign exchange (FX) rates if he is elected president.

Currently, Nigeria operates two foreign exchange (FX) markets: one is the official central bank rate, while the other is at the parallel section also known as black market.

Although the parallel segment is more accessible to traders and businesses who need FX, the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) has consistently maintained that it represents less than one percent of forex transactions and should never be used to determine the exchange rate.

Speaking at the event, Tinubu said if he is elected, Nigerians would no longer pay estimated billing for electricity.

Estimated billing is a type of electricity payment system whereby the distribution companies (DisCos) bill consumers for power consumption without the aid of any meter (postpaid or prepaid). This usually results in charging customers way more than the power consumed.

“By all means, you must have electricity. And you won’t pay for estimated billing anymore. When I become president, multiple exchange rates will go away. Write it down,” he said.

“My discussion today is to inspire so that the promise of today can be a reality tomorrow. We promise you, we will bring prosperity to Nigeria”
