Cross River: Vandalisation of electricity infrastructure worries Gov Otu

Written by on April 7, 2024

Governor Bassey Otu of Cross River State has expressed deep worry over the escalating vandalisation of electricity infrastructure, especially in Bekwara Local Government Area and other northern parts of the state.

He described the vandalisation as very troubling and called on local communities and their leadership to help government secure the equipment to avoid unnecessary expenditures in that direction.

He stressed the critical role of youths, elders, and traditional leaders in protecting vital infrastructure.

He spoke through Francis Ekpo, Director-General of the State Electrification Agency-SEA, during the conclusion of an electrification assessment tour in the Northern Senatorial District.

The assessment tour aimed to evaluate the status of electrification across the region.

“What we have observed on the ground is profoundly troubling and, to be frank, immensely disappointing.

“The extent of vandalism we’ve witnessed is staggering, leaving virtually nothing in its wake. The damage inflicted is so extensive that it will undoubtedly incur substantial costs for the state to rectify.

“It’s not just a matter of repairing equipment; it’s about rebuilding trust and ensuring the sustainability of our electrical infrastructure for future generations,” he said.

He told the people that they have the power to halt this destructive trend through collective determination, charging them to safeguard government infrastructure for the betterment of all, saying collective efforts today will shape the prosperity and well-being of future generations.

Governor Otu assured that his government will address their long-standing electricity challenges, where some communities have reportedly lacked power supply for over 20 years.

Community leaders expressed gratitude for the Governor’s proactive stance and pledged their unwavering cooperation.
