Residents of 2nd Avenue in Festac Town have complained about the lack of power supply in the area.
They lamented the issue, which has been ongoing for over a week.
Mr. Martins Gabriel, a fitness trainer and the chief security officer of the community who resides on 202 Road, said residents have complained several times to Eko Electricity Distribution Company (EKEDC), but there has been no improvement.
Philemon Jacobs, a student who reside on 111 Road, said that prior to the recent blackout, residents had to deal with an erratic power supply, which was a nightmare and nothing compared to the power issues they currently face.
Our correspondent spoke to Mr. Adesoji Abifarin, who is the Chairman of Committee 3, 2nd Avenue. He also represents the community on electricity-related issues.
The truth is that supply has been out. I would not say it has been low, “he lamented to Amuwo News.
He further recounted that all efforts made to resolve the power supply challenge were to no avail as EKEDC blamed generating companies (GENCOS) for supplying them with low power.
Our correspondent also visited the EKEDC office located at 23 Road, S, close to Festac Town, to speak with Mrs. Amah Chinelo, who is the public relations officer of the branch.
Mrs. Amah claimed EKEDC employees were not authorized to speak to journalists.
He also reached out to the Honorable Fatai Ajide, who is the councilor of Ward K.
The councilor claimed he could not speak because he was in a meeting at the time.
