Epileptic power supply in Ogwashi-Ukwu, headquarters of Aniocha South local government area of Delta state by the Benin Electricity Distribution Company is badly affecting economic activities in the local government area due to the fact that revenues that the council is supposed to be generating from businesses that depend on power supply are not possible any longer.
It is also negatively affecting students of the Delta State Polytechnic, Ogwashi-Ukwu, who need it to read for their exams, charge their phones and rechargeable lamps. Some areas in Ogwashi-Ukwu have not seen electricity supply from nine months to over a year now yet the BEDC keeps bringing dubious bills and expecting people to pay for power not consumed.
