Ondo Blackout: BEDC To Restore Power To Six Communities


Management of the Benin Electricity Distribution Company (BEDC) has promised to restore power to the six  communities in the four local government areas in Akoko land in Ondo State.


These communities have been in total darkness over past two years. 
The BEDC management  led by its Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Funke Osubodu made the promise during a courtesy visit on Governor,  Oluwarotimi Akeredolu at his office in Akure, the state capital. 
Mrs Osubodu said though the power supply from the national grid was not enough, power will be restored to the six communities that were disconnected. 
The BEDC boss, however, decried recurring vandalism of the company’s properties by vandals.
She called on the state government and other relevant stakeholders to join hands  in the fight against vandalism of the company’s and other public utilities by vandals.
According to her, BEDC has taken some steps like fencing its transformers to prevent destruction by vandals.
Responding, Mr Akeredolu lamented over the darkness situation in the six communities. 
He frowned at the situation where  many communities in the Southern and Northern senatorial districts of the state had been in darkness. 
The governor who said the issue of the power situation was discussed with the Minister of Power, Works and Housing during his recent visit to the state,  told the BEDC management that it would  make more money if it restores power to communities that had been disconnected.
