Reps: Bill Seeking To Criminalise Estimated Billing Passes 3rd Reading

The Federal House of Representatives on Tuesday passed a bill seeking to amend the Electric Power Reform Act, prohibit and criminalise estimated billing of consumers.

The Majority Leader, Femi Gbajabiamila, sponsored the bill in protest against the “crazy bills” Electricity Distribution Companies force their customers to pay.

The report submitted by the committee set up by the House to the matter was unanimously adopted by the lawmakers,   after a public hearing on June 5, 2018.

Deputy Speaker Yusuf Lasun, who presided over the session, put the report to a voice vote and it was approved overwhelmingly.

The House of Reps will transmit the bill to the Senate for agreement. If the upper chamber passes the bill, it will be transmitted to President Muhammadu Buhari to give his assent to it.
