Daura residents decried 5-days blackout since Buhari’s departure
Residents of the ancient city Daura which is also the hometown of President Muhammadu Buhari are angry with the electricity distribution company over 5 days of blackout.
The residents of the town who spoke with Katsina Post revealed that they have been with out electricity since President Muhammadu Buhari’s departure on Saturday.
“Since Buhari’s departure on Saturday, ‘NEPA’ (now Kaduna Distribution Company) began to act weird in total opposite to what was the situation when he was around.
“On that same Saturday, they took off light but later it was later restored. But since that time, we have been in total blackout.” Say a resident of Kofar Fada Daura simply identified as Umar.
Recall that during the President Sallah vacation visit earlier, some community leaders in the five local government areas under Daura emirate who were on a courtesy visit told the President that they enjoy 24 hours power supply only when he is in town.
One of the community leaders, Mohammed Saleh, said “Anytime the President is around we enjoy 24 hours power supply. But if he is not around, the power supply is not always stable.”
Efforts to get the reaction of the Head of Communication, KEDCO proves abortive as he said he was driving and will get back to us after he stops – but he never did up to the time of filing in this report.
