The Enugu Electricity Distribution PLC (EEDC) has called on electricity consumers within its franchise to be vigilant and protect power installations in their localities against vandals in Christmas and New Year festivities.
The Head of Communications, EEDC, Mr. Emeka Ezeh, who made the call on Friday, regretted the rate at which power facilities were being vandalized across EEDC’s network.
According to him, the effect of vandalism has untold consequences on electricity customers who depend on electricity to carry out their various business activities, as they were subjected to blackout and inconveniences.
“EEDC is however not relenting on its effort to reduce the cases of vandalism through its strategic partnership with government security agencies and vigilant groups. This collaboration is however yielding positive result.
“These vandals are not spirits and do not operate in the air. They are human beings, our relatives, friends, neighbours and so on, who operate in the same environment. We encourage you to report any suspicious movement around these power installations,” Ezeh said.
