IPOB Angered by Poor Power Supply, Extortionist Conduct of EEDC in South East

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has voiced its dissatisfaction with the Enugu Electricity Distribution Company (EEDC) regarding the poor supply of electricity and the imposition of exorbitant bills in the South East region. In a statement released by IPOB spokesman, Emma Powerful, on Monday, the group expressed concern over the recurring increase in electricity bills despite inadequate service provision by the EEDC.

They emphasized the need for reliable and affordable electricity, stating that the current situation is untenable for the people of the South East.

IPOB asserted that if the EEDC continues to fail in providing satisfactory electricity services or addressing the issue of overbilling, they should be permanently replaced in the South East region. They criticized the disparity between the increasing bills and the lack of consistent electricity supply, highlighting the economic burden this imposes on the people, who are effectively paying for a service they are not receiving.

Furthermore, IPOB urged South East Governors to take decisive action in addressing the electricity challenges faced by the region. They called upon the governors to leverage recent electricity reforms by the Federal Government to attract more reliable electricity providers and improve the investment environment in the South East.

The group emphasized the importance of reducing the suffering of the people, particularly amid the current economic hardships faced by Nigerians.
