The Landlords and Tenants Association in Alaba-Oro area of Lagos is protesting erratic billing by the PHCN in spite of poor electricity power supply to the community.
The association, in a protest letter made available to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos on Monday, alleged that residents were being erratically billed by the PHCN.
The letter, signed by Mr Raji Yusuf, Secretary General and spokesman for the association, said that residents did not understand the reason they were placed on estimated billing.
The association alleged that PHCN sent estimated bills to the residents between December and March in spite of total blackout suffered by the community.
"Some residents paid as much as N14, 000 per month. We have reported the case to PHCN Apapa Business Unit.
"Besides, representatives of the community complained to the Eko Electricity Distribution Zone, but to no avail.
Mr Adekunle Obajemu, Business Manager, PHCN Apapa Unit, however, told NAN on phone that he had informed the residents to lodge their complaint individually.
Obajemu said that the unit would not recognise the residents as a group, adding that each of the residents had different equipment and quantum of energy consumed.
"It is advisable to present their cases individually than using community emblem to fight unjust course.
"We don't treat bills on community basis, but at the individual level," he said. (NAN)
