Improve Electricity Supply In Southeast Or We’ll Chase You Out – IPOB Warns EEDC

The Enugu energy Distribution Company (EEDC) has been given a deadline by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) to enhance its energy supply in the Southeast or face penalties.

IPOB accused EEDC of “defrauding her consumers with exorbitant electricity bills without supplying the power” in a statement released by Comrade Emma Powerful, the organization’s media and publicity secretary.

“The company has refused to give her consumers prepaid electricity meters but keeps giving illegal estimated bills.

“In many communities in the Southeast, EEDC gives community bills running in hundreds of thousands of Naira. Whether the light was provided or not, any village that didn’t pay the illegal estimated bills will have the irregular light supply disconnected.”

IPOB also alleged that EEDC dismantled some community transformers for repairs and maintenance but failed to return them for years, leaving the communities in darkness.

“EEDC has cupped full, and we are going to show them that the people are the owners of the region, and they are reaping Ndigbo off with abysmal power supply and exorbitant bills,” the statement said. “How can our people be paying for lights they did not consume? How wicked is EEDC and its management?”

With a threat to “chase EEDC out” if the firm did not comply, IPOB demanded that EEDC either deliver enough energy or leave the Southeast.

“We will welcome any company that will invest in power generation and distribution to quicken the industrialization and development of the Southeast,” the statement said. “But if they continue with the abysmal light supply in the Southeast, IPOB will have no option than to shut down EEDC offices in the Southeast in the shortest possible time.”
