Random Pagan Verse:
It has always been the way of men and women that they should seek after love, and while no one should be reproved for this, it may be to the disadvantage of the Craft sometimes. It has happened too many times that a High Priestess has found a new love and run off with him,
giving no word to the coven of this. A High Priestess may resign in full coven at any time, and this resignation is valid; but if she has not resigned, the coven shall wait for her to return for a year and a day (for she may return sooner, having left for love). If she has a deputy, that deputy
is to act as Priestess for as long as the High Priestess is away. If she returns within this time, all will be as if she had never left; but if she does not return within this time, a new High Priestess shall be elected in full coven. Unless there is a good reason to the contrary, the deputy,
having done the work, should reap the reward and be chosen as the new High Priestess. But if another is chosen, the deputy shall be the maiden and deputy of the new High Priestess.

Chairman of the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC), Dr. Sam Amadi has disclosed that the new tariff, approved by the commission, will be effective from February, 2016.

He told Channels Television on Thursday that power distribution companies (DISCOs), have from now till the beginning of February to meter their consumers to ensure appropriate billing.

NERC had announced the removal of fixed charges, saying consumers would now have to pay for ?only what they consume?.


?Although, the new tariff regimes comes with an increase in energy charges, all electricity consumers (residential as well as commercial) will no longer pay fixed charges, so their total bills will depend on the electricity they actually consume and may be reduced when they conserve electricity,? NERC said.

?Consumers will no longer be spending money every month to pay for fixed charges even when they do not receive electricity in their homes and business.

?The objective of the new tariff is to enable prudent consumers to save money on electricity bill as they can now control their consumption and not pay monthly fixed charges.

?For instance, residential customer classification (R2) in Abuja Electricity Distribution Company will no longer pay N702.00 fixed charge every month.


?Their energy charge will increase by N9.60. Also, residential customers (R2 customers) in Eko and Ikeja electricity distribution areas will no longer pay N750. 00 fixed charges. They will be getting N10 and N8 increase respectively in their energy charges.

?Similarly, the burden of N800.00 and N750.00 fixed charges would be lifted off the shoulders of Kaduna and Benin electricity consumers.

?These consumers will see an increase of N11.05 and N9.26 respectively in their energy charges.

?The new tariff is also good news for commercial consumers. For example, commercial customers? classification C2 in Ibadan and Enugu will no longer pay fixed charges of N17, 010. 00 and N22, 141. 00.

?Their energy charge will increase by N12.08 and N13.35 respectively.?
