    Main while, BEDC in delta state brought an unusual high power surge that destoryed practically every electronic in our house: 6 televisions, 2 inverters, 1pumping machine, 1 celing fan! Right now we are counting our losses, thanking God cos it could have been worse ie the whole building been razed by fire! To top it up some silly person stole my phone in the mist of the confusion of trying to put out the fire that ensued! I just thank God I and my aunt were at home when it happened if not……..

    What kind of rubbish talk is this one talking about. Why do this people always think we are stupid? The truth is Lagos is a state with over 25 million people living in it and the state need at least 4,000MW (mega watts) of electricity to archive 24 hours of electricity in the state. But the funny part is the barely generate 4000 Mega watts for the entire Nigeria. This is an ignorant and arrogant statement full of false promises the should do better and stop being bunch of jokes.

    I testify that we have constant power where I live in Lagos. I commend EKEDC for this wonderful work. But I must say that it is not only this Easter period but we have regular power where I live. It is only in Lagos that I experience social amenities that can to some extent be compared to what obtain abroad

      You are happy because you had light for a few days? How is that wonderful? Nigeria has failed it people, but who’s to blame? you all accept this bullshit, which is why this country will never get better or change. This power issue is directly responsible for thousands of deaths and our economic position.
