      Lmao. My dear, I am here wondering what this ‘news’ is really supposed to be about. Because I live in Agungi and we have gone days without Nepa light. Mchew. Maybe this 3hrs is meant to be 3weeks because I don’t see the new thing in power outage for 3hrs anywhere in this country

    In view of the endemic power outage, it is better you announce when there would be power.

    They dont want police from Alagbon to come and carry them. ??. Most weekdays that area has electricity from 7am to 7pm. Weekends On Your Own…..not sure what the arrangement is as Immigration, prisons and police (formerly CID- they have a new acronymn now) are in that area.

    ? Pls how is this news? U sure you didn’t mean 3wks and not 3hrs? Jst wondering! and what do we say about those Nigerians that live in areas where they go without power for months? Why haven’t their cases been mentioned on these blogs? What’s 3hrs? During that 3hrs one might even be sleeping without realising there was a blackout. Smh!

    Thanks for the heads up……but the residents Lekki OSAPA London have been suffering with what appears to be rationing of electricity. One day on and two days off. If you ever wondered what organisational incompetence and disregard for customers looks like , I think there might be a clear example here

    Is there a way to make these grievances known to both of these people? There seems to be a disconnect between what executives are saying and what is happening on the ground. Is something eating up the power or are the reports not accurate?

    Hmmm. Maybe someone is ‘sitting’ on our electricity supply on the Ajah axis else we won’t be getting such a notice
