Côte d’Ivoire: A deputy wants to investigate a royalty paid to RTI, via CIE
(Ecofin Agency) - In Côte d’Ivoire, Anoblé Felix (photo) (MP of San Pedro district) announced that he requests for an investigation on the royalty paid to Ivorian Radio and Television Broadcasting (RTI), through the Ivorian electricity company (CIE). The official said this last week while meeting with populations.
“At the session that will open, we will ask for an inquiry on the CFA2000 that Ivorians pay to RTI through CIE, on the 10% penalty imposed for non-payment of a bill and on the fixed premium,” he said.
This fee has been questioned many times by the population. Based on the investigation’s outcome, the royalty may be cancelled.
