Govt, Residents Kick Over Payments For Blackout In Bayelsa

Govt, Residents Kick Over Payments For Blackout In Bayelsa

The people and government of Bayelsa State are not happy with the continued darkness being visited on the state by the Power Holding Company of Nigeria.

While some of the natives are taking to the streets of Yenagoa to protest the payment they are forced to make for services not provided by PHCN, the state government is not taking it kindly with the organisation and has moved to confront them over the issue.

The issue of consistent blackout in Yenagoa was a subject of discourse during the last executive council meeting of the state.  The State Commissioner for Information and Orientation, Mr. Daniel Iworiso-Markson confirmed that the 90th State Executive Council meeting discussed the matter extensively.

Iworiso-Markson said the state deputy governor, Rear Admiral Gboribiogha John Jonah (Rtd) would chair a meeting with the Port Harcourt Electricity Distribution Company to proffer lasting solutions to the power situation, including issues of arbitrary electricity bills.

The Commissioner for Power, Chief Partner Jim-Ogbolo, on his part, has noted the arbitrary payment of electricity bills and wants the company to provide meters to its customers towards ensuring that consumers pay bills according to the power consumed.
