How Itam Youth caused Total Darkness In Akwa Ibom State – PHED

Akwa Ibom Blackout was caused by the Itam Youth Forum – PHED

According to Port Harcourt Electricity Distribution Company (PHED) the blackout in Akwa Ibom yesterday the 14th of August 2019 was caused by Itam Youth Forum.

In a statement released by Port Harcourt Electricity Distribution Company (PHED) through her corporate communication manager, Mr John Onyi stated that some members of the Itam Youth Forum led by Obong Ubong Akpan came to its office at 4- Lane with a coffin and scared customers away.

“The action of the Youth has, therefore, led to the inability of the Transmission Company of Nigeria, TCN, to wheel out power to Port Harcourt Electricity Distribution Company for onward distribution to its valued customers in thereby forcing the station to shut down supply forcefully,” he said

Read the complete statement below:

PHED cannot be intimidated or coerced into doing the biddings of “A self-acclaimed-messiah” as we have the mandate of the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission, NERC, to distribute power supply to our customers including Itu community in our franchise area.
We therefore, call on the relevant government functionaries especially the security agencies to step in and advise Ubong Akpan and his group to vacate the premises of the TCN and remove their coffin from PHED’s office in Uyo with a view to wheeling out supply to PHED
customers.
