Youths Give AEDC Ultimatum To Improve Supply

A youth group – Youth Lead Nigeria Movement has given AEDC four weeks to improve power supply or leave the state.

Addressing journalists yesterday in Minna, the group through its representative, Comrade Mohammed Saidu Etsu, said the ultimatum was coming since all peaceful means to get the appropriate authorities to address the epileptic power supply across the state had failed.

Why Government Must Act Now In Ensuring Utilities Right of Way.

The group wondered that despite hosting three major hydroelectric dams like Kainji, Shiroro and Jebba, the state could not enjoy appreciable power supply.

“We are determined to have the power supply and lack of which will make their continued stay vulnerable to aggression from communities. We, therefore, advise them to heed our calls,”.

It also pointed out that aside what it referred to as “pathetic power” situation, there was also the impact of the activities of the generating companies on communities hosting the dams, ranging from flooding and the consequent loss of lives and properties as well as other health-related problems which “are but ticking time-bombs” deserving urgent attention.
