Lafia Residents Set to Rally Against Inadequate Power Supply and Exorbitant Bills in Nasarawa

Residents of Lafia, the capital of Nasarawa State, are voicing their frustration regarding the inadequate power supply and exorbitant electricity bills they have been facing.

In response, the residents have organized a peaceful protest outside the Abuja Electricity Distribution Company (AEDC) office located along Makurdi Road.

The decision to protest arises from an incident where an AEDC staff member was allegedly assaulted while attempting to disconnect power supply to a neighbourhood.

According to a report by Vistanaij Media, a confrontation between residents and workers of the DisCo occurred on Thursday afternoon in a Lafia neighbourhood.

The protest organizers are urging fellow residents to join them in demanding effective solutions to the town’s power crisis and fair treatment in billing.

“We have had enough. We believe it is time for change, and we need your voice to make it happen. Your presence is important. Together, we can pave the way for a brighter future for our town,” stated the organizers in a notice provided to journalists.

Scheduled for Tuesday, February 20, the protest aims to bring attention to the challenges faced by residents and advocate for improved services from the electricity distribution company.
