Ikeja Electric Plc (IE), Nigeria’s largestpower distribution company has called on customers within her network to settle outstanding bills as itembarks on a network-wide exercise to disconnectdelinquent customers who are owing.

This is coming in the heels of an improved power supply in recent months, better service delivery and increased payment options across the network..

Speaking on the development, IE’s Head of Corporate Communications, Felix Ofulue, urged customers to take advantage of the various payment platforms available to settle their bills. He said, “Ikeja Electric has invested in multiple robust platforms that will make bill settlement easier and more convenient. As we deploy more resources to improve the stability of power supply across our network, we will also appreciate a situation where customers promptly pay for energy they consume. It is this healthy partnership that guarantees sustenance and development in the power sector.”

Ikeja Electric provides of an array of payment alternatives for her customers including tokens;scratch card vouchers, which are sold by vendors and agents across its networks; Quickteller, which can be accessed on mobile devices and internet banking. Other platforms include Pawakad, a mobile app payment system managed by strategically located agents; Baxibox, commonly known as ‘Baba-Ijebu’; Point-of-Sales terminals; WebPay and Interswitch among others.

Commenting further on the settlement of bills, Ofulue reminded customers of the Debt Discount Exercise,which provides discount options to enable customers pay off their outstanding bills and called on all interestedcustomersto visit the company website; www.ikejaelectric.com or walk into any Undertaking Office for details on how to qualify for the discount.

BAXI Box is not commonly know as Baba ijebu. BAXI Box is the blue terminal used to pay IKEDC,DSTV,GOTV, bills and lots more, while Baba Ijebu is the red terminal used to play lotto.

Not a problem at least power supply is better in my area(oshodi and environs). My questions is wat happens to the bills accumulated during the complete black out era??????? let us minus that one and pay the rest. People of Lagos, am i making sense. Linda help us raise this as another topic, Bello street in Ladipo are experiencing complete BLACK OUT for the past two weeks. Help us beg IKEDC to expedite action and resolve the issue. The street got a brand new Transformer about 2years ago but unfortunately the transformer is installed but not powered for reasons best know to IKEDC/former NEPA because of bribery and corruption. Pls help so that the transformer can also be connected. From - TTS.
