Reports reaching OTV News through Ikechukwu Agbai of OYDA – Ohafia Youth Development Association has called on the relevant authorities to come to Ohafia rescue from the claws of EEDC.
According the report, the Enugu Electricity Distribution Company, EEDC, Ohafia District, have for a long time totally neglected their duties towards Ohafia residents. Citing few examples, he said that Timber-Shed in Ebem have been in total darkness for close to 6 months now without any possible remedy in sight.
The residents say their previous transformer developed issues last year due to overload and has till date not been fixed or replaced to alleviate the plight of the people.
He confirmed that the community people pooled resources together and bought a transformer which unfortunately EEDC has failed to come and install even when they are the ones saddled with the responsibility of providing same. This makes one to wonder if this is a deliberate act of irresponsibility to punish ohafia Community.
