The suspension was disclosed to newsmen in Port Harcourt by the company’s Customer Service Head, Dr. Godwin Orovwiroro during an engagement on Customer Bill of Right, organised by the company in line with the directives of the electricity regulatory agency.

Orovwiroro attributed the suspension to the abolishment of the Credited Advance Payment for Metering Initiatives (CAPMI) by the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC).

He informed that the responsibility to provide meters and other infrastructure was not that of customers but electricity distribution companies.

In his contribution, the head, Corporate Communications, PHED, John Onyi, said the management of PHED had set up a special unit with dedicated line in its efforts to fight corruption in the company after several complains about shaddy deals of some PHED staff.

His word, “The fight against corruption is a battle that must be won in PHED and that was why the management of the company set up a special line to report issues of corruption.”
