Blackout in Okitipupa, Ilaje, others for 10 years

Towns and villages in the riverside communities of Okitipupa, Ilaje, Ese-Odo and Irele, all in Ondo South, have been in darkness for 10 years running.

The Benin Electricity Distribution Company(BEDC) appears unable to rectify the problem, as it offers some scant hope.
BEDC said that the acute power supply limitation and the inability to connect the communities in to the national grid was due to a damaged breaker at the Ondo 132/33KV Station.
Mrs Kunbi Labiyi, the Chief State Head, Ondo and Ekiti States, gave the clarification in a statement made available to newsmen on Wednesday in Akure.
Labiyi said the problem was compounded by the inability of the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) to make bulk power available for evacuation in the area.
