7 months power outage worries council chairman

14 September 2015, 06:49

Kaiama - Alhaji Alhassan Bagudu, the Chairman of the Kaiama Local Government Council of Kwara, has lamented the seven months power outage in the area, which he said had crippled economic activities.

The chairman in a statement he issued on Sunday in Kaiama, appealed to Ibadan Electricity Distribution Company (IBEDC) to restore electricity in the area.

Bagudu said that the blackout persisted in spite of the fact that the council had committed a lot of funds for the replacement of damaged cables and other electrical materials.

According to the council boss, the power outage had slowed the pace of work in the local government council operations.

He, however, commended the Emir of Kaiama, Alhaji Muazu Omar, for donating a 50 KVA power generating plant to Kaiama General Hospital.

The statement added that the council had set up a seven-member committee, headed by the Vice-chairman of the council, Alhaji Usman Yusuf to fast-track restoration of electricity to the area.

The committee, among other things, will suggest permanent solutions to the power problem in the area.
The committee is expected to visit headquarters of IBEDC in Ibadan, among others.
