A TRIBUTE TO TEACHERS FROM VTPASS

5th of October looks quite like every normal day. Time is still as busy as ever and life, well, it still goes on alright. But today isn’t anything like any other day. Today is Teacher’s day. Almost everyone who has had to face the wrath of a teacher for not doing an assignment will know the immense significance of this day. Teachers are the muscles of knowledge and innovation. They have served as the cornerstones of the great minds and geniuses we have now.

VTpass, as an online payment platform, offers a digital service by making it easier and quicker for you to pay for your phone airtime, cable tv subscription, data subscription and electricity bills. So, in this regard, we understand just what it means to serve an audience and satisfy them adequately. Just like teachers, the very satisfaction of our customers is our utmost concern.

So, the enormous importance of teachers cannot be overemphasized. And VTpass, in recognising this importance, celebrates our teachers on this day. We say thank you to each and every loyal teacher who has served the society by breeding powerful minds and hearts that go on to become great ambassadors and propagators of groundbreaking ideas. Consequently, we will go on to feature some of the quotes made by celebrated people about teachers and their immense impacts on them.

SERVICE DELIVERY: HOW TO AVOID ANY DISAPPOINTMENT

A funny, heavy downpour of rain when you had planned to take your woman or man to somewhere ‘special’. Name it. Disappointments can be frustrating. But what is more frustrating than not being able to get a service just when you need it- airtime, data, electricity, and constant TV time. That’s pretty frustrating, especially when you need to make a life-changing call or send that one email that will turn things around for you.

NIGERIA IS 57: CELEBRATE OUR INDEPENDENCE IN GRAND STYLE WITH VTPASS

Indeed, it’s been one hell of a long year for Nigeria. And rough too, very rough. For one, there were the president’s frequent absences from his seat, then the constant cases of kidnappings and random killings, a collapse of buildings, and massive economic and ethnic unrest. But, we made it through, and we are here now, stained, tattered, scarred but undivided, unashamed, and very fifty-seven.

At fifty-seven, we can’t say Nigeria has had it good all through, but we still can count our lucky stars. In spite of the various problems, Nigerians have turned out to be very resilient even in the face of grave situations. Without a doubt, where there is a problem, Nigerians have their way of finding interactive solutions to these problems. One such interactive solution has been www.vtpass.com. Vtpass.com has proven to be a problem solver by allowing for easy, quick payments of our phone airtimes, data subscriptions, cable TV subscriptions and electricity bills.

For this and more, Nigerians, and by extension, Nigerians deserve to celebrate and be happy. We have given our all into building this nation, and despite the lapses, we have never sunk below water. So, cheers to Nigerians and to Nigeria.

To celebrate this glorious independence, we, at vtpass.com, have compiled a list of celebrities, both Nigerian and non-Nigerian, who sang the Nigerian national anthem. This is to epitomise our resilience, strength of character and our openness to humour and fun in spite of anything.

Here goes it:

  1. 2FACE DOES A BEAUTIFUL REMIX OF THE NATIONAL ANTHEM

    3. NOW, IT GETS VERY EMOTIONAL AS BEYONCE SINGS THE NATIONAL ANTHEM IN APPRECIATION FOR RECEIVING HER WITH LOVE.

5. PRAIZ ALSO STEPS UP ON IT

6. AND HERE IS A LAST ONE. HERE, YOU JUST GET TO CRACK YOUR RIBS

WE AT VTPASS.COM ARE PROUDLY NAIJA AND WE WISH HER A HAPPY BIRTHDAY.

KWESE TV COMES TO THE LIMELIGHT

Are you ready to pay less for something bigger? Ok, this is not www.vtpass.com trying to get your heart to the skies by talking about our cheap, easy and convenient payment method. These words, are rather, in the voice of TSTV AFRICA. Yes, you must have heard of them. They are launching a Pay-as-you-consume TV on and we, at vtpass.com, have opened up an easy portal through which you can pay for their services. In any case, this is not the entire story. Apart from TSTV AFRICA who are launching in style, there is a whole new brand of entertainment hitting our big screen and that’s Kwese TV.

So, you might be wondering who has initiated yet another timely intervention in the Pay-Tv entertainment sector. Well, you would know in a bit. Do you remember the very first service provider that brought the sim card revolution into Nigeria, just in time to supplement the increasing patronage of cell phones? That’s Econet, right? It would amuse you to know that Kwese TV is a brand of Econet Media Limited.

Though they may be taking the underground tunnels this time around, Kwese TV is coming strong into the Nigerian market, just as well as TSTV. And they cannot be underappreciated as they are, in more ways than one, taking Pay-TV to a whole new different level.

AMAZING THINGS KWESE TV HAS TO OFFER

kwese tv,vtpassFirst off, Kwese TV is taking audiences beyond TV into several other realms that were once thought unimaginable. Not only can you watch Kwese TV on your TV via the satellite, you can also watch it on your TV via the Internet. This can be done through a medium called Kwese Play. As if this is not enough, Kwese TV also has an app so that you can watch on the go. This is called the Kwese App.

Again, there are pretty amazing tv channels that probably you have come across on other Pay-TVs. But some channels are absolutely new and innovative. For instance, we have channels like Arsenal media, Safe Entertainment etc.

Even as Kwese TV continues to penetrate the market, be sure that vtpass.com will, waste no time, in opening a portal that assures you quick and easy payment for all of Kwese TV’s services, ranging from the payment for their physical satellite to the internet access and access to the mobile app.

Also, www.vtpass.com offers easy and convenient payments for your 9mobile, Airtel, MTN and GLO airtime and data subscriptions. We also allow for ease and convenience in the payment of your DSTV, STARTIMES, GOTV subscriptions and electricity bills.

NDANI TV: SKINNY GIRLS IN TRANSIT IS BACK

Here is a story you would like to hear:

Once upon a season, there lived a girl named Tiwalade. She is a Lagosian, an OAP (Online Air Personality) and she is fat. Now she wants to lose weight and really fast too. She is further propelled to burn out her extra calories due to a heartbreak from her boyfriend, Kola, her mother’s Holy Spirit cajolings and a severe intimidation in the hands of her slim, prim and beautiful sister, Shalewa. But hey, in her down moment, Tiwa hooks up with interesting guys, guys that would have been considered suitable for only skinny girls.

ndani,skinny girls in transit, vtpassWell, by now, you should already have gotten the gist. It’s Ndani TV’s very own Skinny Girls in. Transit.

Who knows, but you might just get some useful tips on how to meet and know the right one.

API: LET VTPASS.COM SERVE YOU WELL

The first question that will be on your lips is what is an API?

Well, here is a textbook definition:

An API stands for “Application Programming Interface.” An API is a set of commands, function, protocols and objects that programmers can use to create software or interact with an external system. It provides developers with standard commands for performing common operations so they do not have to write the code from scratch.

But not all of us are computer geeks or nerds. Ok, most of us are not. So here are simple, fun ways of understanding what an Application Programming Interface (API)  is:

You buy an extension, which you intend using to charge your phone, laptop and the likes. For the extension to work, you are not going to plug straight to the transformer next to your house, or the wire transmitting electric current to you, right? No, you need an interface. Something that can stand in the gap and collect the energy from the electric current down to you. You need a socket. This socket which is usually connected to a wire on the wall serves as an interface to which you plug your extension. This in response to the interface, enables you to charge your phone and any other thing.

The API is just like that socket, except it is something you can’t see and it has more to do with the internet world.

ANOTHER EXAMPLE

You want to buy rice and chicken from your favourite restaurant. Now, do you just go into the kitchen where it is being cooked or stored? And then demand a plate of rice and chicken? Of course, not, there is an attendant, a waiter. In this case, an interface that delivers your request for a hamburger to the kitchen staff. They in response to your request, hand over the food to the waiter, who will, in turn, place it before you. And then, lunch or dinner is served. Or breakfast, if you are the one that does late meals or does not fancy the routine bread, tea and egg.

The waiter has served as an API, relaying messages for you all in a bid to deliver a service. You must have guessed by now that in the real sense, the person making the request is not a person, but codes. Just like the waiter and kitchen staff responding to the requests are are all codes.

So, simply put, APIS are messengers that take requests from a user end, go to the right quarters to deliver the message.  And then relays back an answer to the user again. In a technical sense, you use an API when you employ the code written by someone else or their database for your own purpose, or to service your own website.

WHY DO I NEED TO KNOW API?

There are a lot of ways knowing how the API works can profit an average online business person. Say, you have a natural hair blog that sometimes needs to display videos. You might not have these videos at all. But by integrating Youtube’s API to your site, these videos can be displayed on your site.

It is through this the API that many videos on YouTube get featured on sites that clearly are not Youtube. Another easy way of using API is having a website where you need people to sign in or login. Because you know Google or Facebook already have the sign in feature which is way professional.  On proper request, you can simply use Google or Facebook’s sign in feature. So that, what you will have on your own website is “sign in with Google or Login with Facebook”. You might be nodding in understanding right now. That’s good, but there is something even better.

ELECTRICITY METERS: WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW

Electricity has, no doubt, been a blessing to every individual life. And though it seems there are more miles to cover before we attain the status of constant, stable electricity in Nigeria, we can’t ignore the fact that right steps are being taken in the right direction. First off, there is the decentralisation of power distribution and partial handing over of power management and administration onto private companies with the purport of ensuring a more effective, less bureaucratic control over the power sector.

Also, the sale and installation of prepaid meters in individual homes have gone a long way in stamping a seal of accountability on the minds of Nigerians. Not only can individuals gauge and estimate the rate of electricity they consume, but they can also control it.  So that the company only charge them for the exact amount of energy they consume. As great as having the prepaid or postpaid meter may be, it poses certain questions which if not readily and rightly answered can put off any consumer. Here at Vtpass.com, we have provided ready, responsive answers to all such questions as can be seen below.

WHERE TO PAY

phcn,electricity,vtpassHaving to go far away to distant outlets can be quite an energy-sapping task. And a time wasting one too. But why go through a lot of stress paying for your electricity bill when you can, from wherever you are, simply sit back and pay for it in three easy steps. Vtpass.com affords you the opportunity of doing this, just as it affords you the opportunity to pay for your phone airtime, data subscription and cable tv subscription. You want to try it now?

Just log in to www.vtpass.com.

Select Pay Electricity Bill and enter your details on the displayed form.

Pay.

A token will be generated for you in form of an email or text message. You only have to input the number of the token into the meter.

HOW TO PAY

electricity,vtpassWhen paying for your electricity bill, one thing you need to know is your meter number. But oh, you are thinking, my meter number. Isn’t it the one on the card that comes with the meter? Well, you will be right if you are not talking about the long list containing both alphabets and numbers. Because that is only the serial number, not the meter number. Meter numbers are strictly numbers, no alphabets included.

Again, meter numbers are not just found on cards, they can also be found on the meters. It all depends on where you live and hence, which distribution company you belong to. electricity,vtpassIn fact, they are also called account numbers in some regions. The pattern of the meter number also varies based on each distribution company.

With these meter numbers, you can pay your electricity bill on www.vtpass.com by simply logging in, entering your details including your meter number and paying. Just remember that your meter numbers are strictly numbers.

WHAT YOU SHOULD WANT TO KNOW ABOUT YOUR ELECTRICITY METER

electricity,vtpassBeyond buying and installing your meter, you might want to know about the pending debt on your meter. This pending debt usually comes with almost every new meter and needs to be cleared before any proper use. You can make proper enquiries about the exact amount of the pending debt on your new meter and then clear it on vtpass.com. Log in to www.vtpass.com, enter the amount of the debt alongside your meter number and pay.

Also, you can make payment for your 9mobile, Airtel, MTN, GLO airtime and data subscription on www.vtpass.com. Again, renew your DStv, GOtv and Startimes subscriptions and so much more by visiting www.vtpass.com.

PHCN ELECTRICITY DISTRIBUTION COMPANIES IN NIGERIA

Following the privatisation of PHCN (Power Holding Company of Nigeria), several different electricity companies are now responsible for the disbursal of electricity and the handling of electricity payments. What this has done is decentralise the means for the payment electricity bills so that they are now paid based on where individuals live. The distribution companies as they stand presently include the following.

DISTRIBUTION COMPANIES

Ikeja Electric Distribution Company (IKEDC)- Solely for those on the mainland, (Ikeja and environs).

Port-Harcourt Electricity Distribution Company (PHED)- Cross-River, Akwa-Ibom, Bayelsa and River states.

Eko Electricity Distribution PLC– For those on the island (Lagos and Agbara regions).

Abuja Electricity Distribution Company (AEDC)-– Federal Capital territory, Kogi State, Niger State, Nassarawa State.

Jos Electricity Distribution PLC– Benue, Bauchi, Gombe, Plateau states, Saminaka in Kaduna state.

Kano Electricity Distribution Company (KEDC)- Kano, Katsina, Jigawa.

PHCN ELECTRICITY PAYMENT

There are a few more electricity companies, who like the ones here, own and maintain the distribution network and support equipment within the zone. These companies also manage meter installation and servicing, billing, coordinate consumer credit service and collect revenue. It is no gainsaying that despite a reasonable distribution of zones, the reach of these distribution companies does not at all span the length and breadth of the country.

More so, it can be quite a handful trying to understand the workings of these companies, especially if you are just a consumer using power to meet your everyday needs. What can be more of a handful, though, is going through the process of paying for your electricity bill. Rather than worry about companies and distribution centres, why don’t you merely cross over to vtpass.com, an online payment platform, that ensures a speedy and convenient payment of your electricity
