How do I visit the website of the PHCN office for my zone when I have no light in my house?

After the transformation from NEPA to PHCN, all that has successfully been done is putting up of websites here and there and distribution of electricity meters. Fine we love to see colorful websites, but more, we want to see the colorful lights of our bulbs and florescent tubes. Examples of such websites are:www.phcnonline.com, http://www.phcnekozone.org, www.phcnng.com, www.phcnikejazone.org, www.ikejaelectricity.org.

I definitely believe these web-sites are part of the e-Government strategy!!

phcn1

First of all, I would be interested to know how much money was awarded and embezzled for contracts of building all these ‘more on google’ PHCN websites. How do I visit the website of the PHCN office for my zone when I have no light in my house?

Please, help me with this mathematics:
– how many states are in Nigeria? how many PHCN zones per state? how many PHCN ‘zonal-basis’websites? how many webhosts? how many webmasters?

– are there computers at all these Zonal offices? NO, coz the majority of them are still using typewriters.

….. talk about a total waste of money, time, effort.
….. talk about contracts for the killing – all for the sake of ‘PHCN’ Web presence, yet I have no light in my house.

Is it not more reasonable to have one major PHCN WebPortal from which ‘customers’-the Nigerian populace, can access information from any location, and for any PHCN location in the country? I wonder why our leaders love doing things in the reverse.

Yes its true and a shame: Nigeria is Rich in Oil, Dependent On Firewood. I wonder if our leaders think of the good that will befall Nigeria if NEPA/PHCN or whatever is readily available.

Taking Lagos state for example:
1) Every house (residence) has at least 1-generator set.
2) Organizations, companies, banks etc, have at least 2-high powered generator sets.
3) Shops, commercial centers, restaurants, Mr. Biggs and their likes have their own set of generator sets.
4) I doubt, but really I do not think that there is a Church/Mosque in Lagos that does not have a generator set.
5) Even the MTN/Glo card sales lady has her own means of providing electricity for herself.

I wonder: With all the Oil Nigeria is producing and burning away on a daily basis, foreign exchange here and there, I wonder what the bottle-neck exactly is, that Nigeria cannot, after 47-years of Independence have stable electrical power-supply. Our African neighbors have since left us behind. No need to elaborate.

The economics of a stable electrical power supply are not too far-fetched – the cost of basic goods will drop to very affordable levels. Example: if the business center woman has electrical power 8-working hours a day, 5-naira per photocopied page won’t be acceptable anymore.

I believe that one major quality a leader should possess is to look for a major problem, lack, deficiency, need or want in the life, and environment of the people he/she is leading and profer an immediate and permanent solution.

If only we have a President who could solve our electricity problem, even if such a President does not achieve any other thing while in office, except provide Nigerians with stable electricity, Nigerians would forever be greatful to such.

What a wish!!!

  1. I would suggest that the old meter system be changed and the pre-paid meter system be introduced to enhance a viable system hence destroying the root of corruption by some hungry guys in the PHCN. If i had a pre-paid meter, and wanted to buy my card. I could buy how much units I could afford and I know I used the credits myself, instead of having these guys coming in and sending bills to my meter which I did not use.

  2. lets say it black and white: we don’t have leaders.

    p.s: nice work, try to update regularly

  3. […] to be born in the USA(because the PHCN does would not be able to support a Nigerian branch of the Genochoice institute), 2) he would be a handsome boy, tall and dark, with a 100% 419-free mentality(this is a major […]

    I feel very sad and ashamed for my country-Nigeria. Almost 49 years since our independence, we are stuggling to generate 6000MW of power at the end of this year(2009)! A country of over 140 million people. A lot of manufacturing industries have closed down or retrench workers because of high cost of production, overhead cost, etc as a result of epileptic power supply. The major reason is curruption. Secondly, we lack visionary and patriotic leaders.
    Thank you for giving me the opportunity to post my comment.

  15. Lets agree we ‘ve already has the situations in nigeria, but what about some areas that were abandoned they do not even taste the enjoyment of having light as if they were not nigerians, areas like boarder along badagary most especially lagos mainland ebute metta east, we are nigerians

    PHCN, the world is now a global village as such transactions is now made possible from one part of the world to another. In the same light, I would appreciate if PHCN is fully able to make confirmation of bill as well as payment of bill possible irrespective of the part of the world one is. At the moment it appears to be difficult.

  17. Why is phcn going from worst to worst,instead of increasing supply,they’re increasing tarrif.i paid a bill that’ve not been credited

    Dear Sir,
    PETITION ON ABUSE OF OFFICE AND POWER CORRUPT OF SANGO OTA PHCN. BUSINESS MANAGER,
    MR,KAYODE MOYOSADE.
    Tel. 08038237235.
    We The above named communities found it deeply necessary as a good citizen of this Great country, Nigeria, to report the abuse of office and power corrupt of (PHCN), Business Manager in person of Mr. Kayode Moyiosade who on His own account as Authority single handedly put our Transformer ,Electrification project that was Energized on the 10th sept.2012 just a week after the commissioning of the project into comatose, This project goop millions of Naira which was carried out by the six communities without any support from either Government or from PHCN itself.
    Sir, this project went through normal process, the mines and power from Abeokuta came for inspection, certified the project and issued their certificate. Sango ota PHCN also came for inspection and certified the project before commission. It is very sad to hear that the same Business Manager Mr Kayode Moyosade that hutted this electrification project collected sum of (#250,000.)Two Hundred and Fifty Thousand Naira only from the community before inspection and certification of the project, what a mess?.
    Sir, during the investigation carried out by the community at large, we discovered that one Mr. ADENIYI who happen to be an old friend of Mr. kayode Moyosade had personal problem with Mr.Rasaq Tunji , who is the Chairman of Goodluck community association, both live in same steet,He, Adeniyi was the one who purportedly want to punish the whole 6 association because he was asked to pay sum money for the electrification which he felt is too much for him to pay, He then used his relationship he had with Mr. Kayode Moyosade,the PHCN Business manager to surfer the whole community which is unjust
    Sir, we are appealing to the concern Authority to do something before things gets out of hands, The youth in the community are brutally annoyed and we have been managing the situation for the past one month. The aggrieved Adeniyi was summoned to meeting with the CDA and Mgggr. Rasaq Tunji to resolve their grevanceses but the power drunk Business Manager of PHCN never gives room for that .The so called BM is not residing in any of those community afore mentioned, I wonder which section or sub section of Nigerian constitution permitted him exercise such unruly right.
    We will by the special grace of God want you to wave into the matter so as to avoid Anarchy in our community and forestall chaos.
    Thanks for anticipated cooperation.
    WHOLE HOUSE.

  19. I am reporting one of your staff called Alagba who have been going arround to collect illegal money from the people of Oluwatedo Ijan precisely Fashipe Avenue in Oshin in ayobo Ipaja Local council development area of Lagos State. Every two weeks he always come around with his boys to collect N500.00 from each house in this area. In fact they refused to give us meter in this area and they have not been serving us electric bills. He only comes around to collect without giving us any receipt to that effect. In my own view I belief he has been collecting this money for himself illegally to the detriment of the PHCN and Government of the Federal Republic of Nigieria. He was in my house in May this year and removed my cable that I bought with my money and left since because I refused to give him and his boys the money. He has put me and my family in darkness since May till date. Please I would like the authority to look into this and take action to stop all this wicked acts of this man.

    My address: 21/23 Fashipe Avenue, Oshin.

Imagine paying electricity bills without a boast for a 12 hour light,whereas, at ogunseye street which is a street beside my street, they give them up to 72 hours power supply without interruption! why?? because of the bribe they receive from the inhabitants of the street. This is really disheartening. Phcn is the highest corrupted body in Nigeria.

  38. I need to make a complain in respect of Phcn at Ketu Lusada in Igbesa Ogun state at Ado Ado LGA . Initially we were paying Phcn to Eco bank at Crown Ford University Igbesa, they stop customer from paying there bills at the bank but decided to to come to your House and collect it by hand on the promise that they will come with your receipt and the following month it will never reflect on your bill I see it as a fraud and if you do not comply they threated to disconnect in cases they disconnect without given you bill they just do what they like because you can cry to any and get answer that is how bad the system is now,
    Please kindly look into the situation in that part of Ogun state find out if what I explain is true or false .

  40. PHCN AKUTE OGUN STATE….. Abusing power, disconnecting the transformer due to low revenue, after the lack of power supply to the region and the halt of payment, they disconnected the supply of power saying the community must pay for power they did not receive. If we take law into our hands, then government will be involved, lol! PHCN staffs, be careful, i know it is not your fault, but we might get attention, when we dealing with staffs in the vehicle of around. We can get an external to fix the transformer… but be warned, as any thing with PHCN on it is at risk. The system don’t have a website or an hotline to loge complains..

    Then you don’t exist..

  42. Please help us talk to our station manager I don’t know his name at Oke-ira. Ayo Alabi road. He has switch off our mobile transformer since Monday at Agbede st and Abioye st respectively. He said some houses are own. We asked him to drop the cables of defulters he said no. Other houses on same transformer are in dark since Monday. Even houses that are on prepaid meter. The houses on estimated bill will still pay by month ending either they use light or not. This is an injustice and corruption in another dimension.

  43. Pls can u help talk to lked ketu ikose to pls come and fix d pole fell almost 2wks now and blocking d road.Most houses av ligth now but d some are still yet to av light.

  44. It is compulsory to contribute money for phcn officials to replace low tension overhead wires if it is bad,because in my community at owode labora,abijo GRA,ibeju lekki,lagos we are facing such problem right now and transformer is in good shape.
