The Community Development Committee Chairman of Eneka clan in the Obio/Akpor Local Government Area of Rivers State, Hon. Bestman Worlu, have commended the Port Harcourt Electricity Distribution Company, PHED, over what he described as “improvement of power supply” across the clan in the month of July.
Worlu stated this yesterday while addressing some Indigenes of the clan in his office. According to him, “We strongly commend PHED for the improvement of power supply across the clan in the month of July. We are grateful to PHED for responding to the agitation of Eneka clan on the improvement of Electricity supply within the clan.”
The chairman also urged electricity consumers to register and pay their bills promptly, even as he reiterates his administration’s commitment to restoring power across the clan.
In his words, “We appeal and charge users of electricity to register and pay their bills promptly. This administration is committed to restoring power across the clan. We know and agree that steady power supply and good road network will awaken commercial and industrial activities across the clan.
“We have no reason to fail the people of Eneka who freely entrusted their confidence in us, we are calling on all and sundry to support this all-inclusive and visionary driven administration. The poor compliance of the people and the poor payment of their electricity bills as at when due will no longer be businesses as usual.
Worlu further frowned at illegal electricity connection, warning that it will be duly dismantled to save the clan from possible hazard as well as to ensure and enforce compliance on the payment of electricity.
The CDC Chairman in his remark also notified the people that, “Eneka can no longer afford to go back to Egypt, we plead for the general cooperation of our people to enable us sustain the fit and possibly improve on the existing progress made in the power sector in the month in view.” He said.
