Oshiomhole threaten to deal with BEDC over disconnection of Auchi


Governor Adams Oshiomhole of Edo State has directed the management of the Benin Electricity Distribution Company (BEDC) to restore power to Auchi and other communities which suffered mass disconnection in the state within 48 hours or he could be forced to take a retaliatory action against the power distribution company.

Speaking during a meeting with the management of the BEDC at the Government House, Benin City, Friday, Governor Oshiomhole decried the indiscriminate disconnection, failure to deliver power to the people and exploitation of the consumers through exorbitant charges. 

He said: “We have had a couple of conversations with you, with your Managing Director and your senior management over the unacceptable deterioration of the services that you provide as a distribution company, and the prohibitive charges that your company imposes on the people of this State, and even the arrogance with which you respond when consumers genuinely raise concerns about growing darkness and rising bills.
