Power Outage: Why Port Harcourt Women Protested at Electricity Distribution Company

Some women living around the Mile 1 and Mile 3 Diobu areas of Port Harcourt have protested to the Port Harcourt Electricity Distribution Company (PHEDC).

They say the recent blackout in the Garden City coupled with the heat wave in the night has affected them adversely.

While waving placards and chanting songs, the women claim the food in their refrigerators is going bad and they have to keep throwing them away regularly.

One of the protesters who prefers to remain anonymous said: “We came to tell NEPA that there is no light in Mile 3 area. We pay bills every month but no light. It affects us by making our soup sour”.

Interestingly they also claim that the situation has reduced romantic activities in their marriages as the heat discourages their husbands from fulfilling their conjugal obligations to them.

As of press time, PHEDC is yet to release a statement, however, the current reduction in electricity supply in the Port Harcourt metropolis may not be unconnected with the recent collapse of the national grid.
