By Ojeka Odey Xevia

I will like to alert the Power Holding Company of Nigeria PLC, PHCN Yakurr District that the fallen or almost fallen electricity poles in the pictures below are endangering the lives of the people of Biko Biko Council ward Ugep of Yakurr Local Government Area.

If not quickly and safety removed ,the lives of people in the area is at great risk because the poles are close to the ground.

Speaking with one of the members of the Biko Biko community,he said that” it is up to one month and some weeks the electricity poles fell on our houses along Ediba junction Biko Biko Council ward of Ugep Yakurr Local Government Area . 6 poles fell on people’s houses and they are running away from their houses because they know what electricity is”.

“And the Authority have not done anything to help the affected houses ,” he added.

The entire community of Biko Biko has been in a power blackout since then because of these fallen electricity poles.

Electricity is an important factor of production that human existence greatly depends on. The absence of this, brings about total shut down of not just business activities but also social-economic growth and development.
