The Ibadan Electricity Distribution Company has said it cannot supply electricity to Magboro, Ibafo, Mowe and other communities in Ogun State until a 33KV line awarded by the Niger Delta Power Holding Company Limited is successfully energised, The Punch reports.

The government-owned NDPHC said last week that the line, which is meant to supply power to the areas, had been energised. In a reaction to the statement by the Managing Director, NDPHC, Mr. Chiedu Ugbo, the IBEDC said the line could not be fully energised at a time when testing was still ongoing.

The Technical Manager, Ogun Region, IBEDC, Mr. Akin Abiodun, said, “The construction of the said line had commenced over three years ago and the job is yet to see the light of the day since it has been challenged in one way or the other.”
