Ineptitude: IPOB Calls on S’East Governors to Cancel Contracts with EEDC


The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has urged the five South-East governors to revoke their contracts with the Enugu Electricity Distribution Company (EEDC)

In a statement issued by IPOB Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, the group claimed that EEDC has failed to provide reliable, adequate, and affordable electricity, hindering economic growth in the region.

According to the statement, EEDC’s ineffectiveness has resulted in the exploitation of South-East residents, who are being charged exorbitant prices for subpar services.

The IPOB called on the governors to take immediate action and cancel their contracts with EEDC to pave the way for alternative solutions that can meet the region’s energy needs.

The group’s leader, Mazi Nnamdi Okwu Kanu, was also quoted in the statement, emphasizing the need for urgent action to address the region’s energy crisis.

The South-East governors have yet to respond to IPOB’s demands, but the issue is expected to be a topic of discussion in upcoming regional meetings.

The Enugu Electricity Distribution Company (EEDC) has faced criticism in the past over its services, with many residents expressing frustration over frequent power outages and high electricity bills.

The company has defended its record, citing challenges in the power sector and efforts to improve its services.

However, IPOB’s call for the cancellation of contracts with EEDC has sparked a wider debate about the need for reliable and affordable energy in the South-East region.

As the region continues to grapple with energy challenges, many are watching to see how the governors will respond to IPOB’s demands and whether alternative solutions can be found to address the region’s energy needs.

The outcome of this development remains to be seen, but one thing is clear: the people of the South-East region are demanding better services and more reliable energy, and it is up to their leaders to deliver.

In the meantime, the region’s residents will continue to feel the impact of EEDC’s services, and the need for a lasting solution will only continue to grow.

The situation is a complex one, with many factors at play, but ultimately, it is up to the relevant authorities to find a solution that works for the people of the South-East region.

Only time will tell if IPOB’s call to action will lead to meaningful change in the region’s energy sector.

The people of the South-East region are waiting with bated breath for a resolution to this long-standing issue.
