Ogbomoso youths’ threat: We will maintain peaceful relationship, IBEDC says
Sequel to the threat issued yesterday by the Ogbomoso Community Youth Forum, OCYF, the Ibadan Electricity Distribution Company, IBEDC, Ogbomoso business hub manager, Mr. Nelson Udeme, has said there was no cause for alarm.
The OCYF had threatened to resume its struggle against what it called IBEDC high handedness in the city insisting it had refused to change its way despite series of meetings and agreements in the past.
The youth group further demanded the transfer of Mr. Udeme out of Ogbomoso heaping the blame of much of the alleged misdemeanour on him.
In a statement this morning, OCYF states, “After the press release made by Ogbomoso Community Youth Forum (OCYF) against IBEDC atrocities, the organization became so much disturbed, running from pillar to post.
“Finally, one of our Obas, Baba Aale of Okelerin, Ogbomoso called us, and instructed IBEDC manager and his team to apologize for breach of agreement and to also respond to our request of 3 months free power supply to the area that repaired its transformer on its own.
“They seriously apologized and pleaded for one month, instead of three (3) months. The IBEDC manager also promised to work on the crazy bills!”
Reacting, the manager, Udeme told ogbomosoinsightonline.com via WhatsApp that peace had been brokered with OCYF maintaining the body would continue to foster peace with their customers.
“We brokered peace yesterday. We will continue to maintain customer peaceful relationship.”
But he would not confirm or deny apologizing, promising to give electricity consumers on Akande/Ologbon transformer one month free usage and working to stamp out issuance of crazy bills.
