Electricity 

 

The Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) has stated that a landlord’s outstanding electricity bills cannot be enforced on a tenant.

 

The agency in a tweet it shared on its Twitter page, urged Nigerians to report such landlords forcing them to pay outstanding electricity bills accumulated by previous tenant.

 

The agency wrote: 

 

“A landlord’s outstanding electricity bills cannot be enforced on a tenant.

A judge recently ruled that the bills of a previous tenant cannot be enforced on a new customer.

Send us details if you are in such situations.
