The community will organize a demonstration against the lack of electricity since February

Residents of the Felele Bus Stand community in Lokoja will be holding a protest against the lack of electricity supply by the Abuja Electricity Distribution Company (AEDC) since February this year.

The community, in a statement released Thursday by concerned community member Mallam Shehu Jatto and made available to Online forum said that when the transformer broke down in February, the community was asked to pay for the repair of the transformer, which they did.

They added that the community reliably understood that after the transformer was repaired, it was moved to an undisclosed location, after which the community was again asked to pay for the transport of the transformer to the community. .

They added that to their surprise the Transformer was never brought back to the community and since that time they have been living in complete darkness.

The member concerned said that when they approached the AEDC office in GRA Lokoja, they were not allowed to see the head of the place, but instead they were informed by one of the members staff that their boss didn’t want to see them.


According to the community, they then visited another AEDC office where they were informed that the processor had been moved to Abuja.

“The community paid for the repair and paid another sum for AEDC to bring the transformer back to us, but they are sad that so far they have refused to enlighten us. Since February until now, we are in total darkness.

“If they don’t bring our transformer back, we’re going to have a massive protest.”

However when Online forum went to the Abuja Electricity Distribution Company (AEDC) office located in Lokoja to speak with the regional manager, one of the staff stated that the manager was not there but confirmed that he was aware of the situation and that he was already working on it.
