BENIN CITY ON FIRE OVER BEDC:
1. Workers of the Benin Electricity Distribution Company shuts down headquarters and business units across Edo, Delta, Ondo and Ekiti states.
2. Civil Society groups, Communities, youth groups from Edo, Ondo, Delta and Ekiti states shuts down the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission’s forum office in Benin City.
Some of the reasons which primarily is the purported plan to extend or renew the operational licence of the BEDC, poor services, deliberate non provision of meters, creation of special electricity lines for certain institutions and persons who gets power up to 18-20 hours a day leaving the vast majority of the people in total darkness among others since five years of its operations.
The four states of operation will be experiencing darkness as workers have down tools and insisting that the Funke Osibudu led management must be sacked.
FUNKE MUST GO!
