Okene Residents Set To Protest Over Poor Power Supply

posted in: Gossip, tech | 18

Aggrieved residents of Okene in Kogi state are set to stage a peaceful protest any moment from now at Okene office of Abuja Electricity Distribution Company (AEDC) over alleged epileptic power supply and outrageous bills.

According to the Secretary General, Ebira Peace Movement, Comrade Adabara Abduljelil El-Okene, residents will demand for pre-paid meters to put an end to estimated bills.
He argued that AEDC has been defrauding Okene residents for long with outrageous bills that is not commensurate with the epileptic power supply.

Adabara explained that the aggrieved residents will march through major streets in the Okene, narrating their ordeals and will demand for immediate response.

He lamented that they are forced to embark on the propose protest after several pleas to the company failed to yield fruitful results.
“We all agree that we do enjoy more light during the time of Mr. Ajikobi at AEDC than we are enjoying with our own son in charge.


“In a month, we cannot boast of 14 hour electricity supply in this area, yet they keep distributing inflated bills to residents. It is very annoying.


“Mr. Jere, the AEDC Kogi Regional Manager, and the manager AEDC Okene office, Mr. John Opotu has not lived up to expectations of Ebiras in his one year old leadership.

His constant blame game of the consumer refusing to pay bills is exposing his limited understanding on how to run the company.We were told that, he refused to listen to the staffs working under him and always boast that no body can remove him.

“The manager refused to provide us prepaid meter as we requested for, prepaid electricity is a great solution for many residents. Increasingly, residents are getting tired of paying excess electricity bills.

By using prepayment, customers pay for their electricity upfront, before they use it. The benefit of this is that we don’t have any surprise bills at the end of the month and we can budget for our electricity consumption accordingly.

“Power failure is agonizing, evil doers perpetuate their plans during blackout. More horrific is forcing us to pay for what we don’t consume. The planned street protests by Okene residents against power outage and exorbitant bills will go ahead as planned. Enough is enough,” he said.
Adabara called on Kogi state government, the local government Administrators, traditional chiefs, security agencies to call the Kogi Regional Manager AEDC, Lokoja to order because it was his alleged instructions Mr. John Opotu is working on.
