Why Saki residents are in darkness -IBEDC


The Ibadan Electricity Distribution Company (IBEDC ) on Thursday, gave reasons behind the outage in most parts of Saki town in Saki West council area of Oyo State.

It was recalled that Saki residents had constantly appealed for better power supply, saying their business suffered, making livelihood difficult with the incessant outage in the past few weeks.

Speaking with NAN in Saki on Thursday, the IBEDC Team Lead in the area, Timothy Joel, said only one feeder out of two serving the town was functioning.

“We have two feeders in Saki, serving Saki and its environs, namely the Wewe feeder and the Sango feeder.

“As we speak the Wewe feeder is down for a long time now.

“The management of IBEDC is working to get it fixed as soon as possible because that’s the feeder that serves most parts of Saki town.

“We also wish to appeal to residents to pay up their outstanding bills and stop illegal connections and use of power because it is criminal and may lead to a further outage,” he said.
