Check out what Comr. Etim O. Ita have to say about the blackout in Bakassi LGA.
If the government have fail us, we don’t need to fail ourselves.
At this critical time, it is pertinent to know that it is not just paramountly necessary to bring back electricity in Bakassi Local Government Area, total blackout in the area for the past seven years as directly or indirectly affected businesses and general wellbeing of the people, high cost of PMS has really worsen this scenario, It is time our people and leaders rise up and do the needful for the common good of our people.
The task may seems cumbersome but it is possible if only we are determine and focus towards getting it done.
In my little opinion is; I feel it is necessary we engage with local authorities, collaborate with local government officials, community leaders, and other relevant stakeholders to understand the current situation and develop a comprehensive plan to address the electricity issue. We should conduct a needs assessment to assess the existing infrastructure, including power supply lines, transformers, and distribution networks, to determine areas that require immediate restoration or upgrades.
Seek investment and funding, work with government agencies, non-governmental organizations, and private investors to secure the necessary funding to address the electricity needs in Bakassi. This could involve seeking grants, loans, or public-private partnerships. Once funding is secured, we can invest in the upgrading and maintenance of existing electrical infrastructure. This could include repairing or replacing damaged power lines, transformers, and other equipment.
We can also engage with utility providers, collaborate with electricity distribution companies or regional utility providers to ensure proper distribution and efficient management of electricity supply in Bakassi.
There should also be Community awareness and partnership, Educate the local community about the importance of electricity, its benefit to local businesses, schools, healthcare facilities, and household activities. Foster a sense of ownership and partnership within the community to promote the sustainable use of electricity.
Remember, addressing the electricity issue in Bakassi requires a coordinated effort from various stakeholders, including government authorities, local communities, investors and even the residents in the area.
I believe the government of the day would consider the wellbeing of our people as promise and give our dear LGA a new face.
#BRING BACK ELECTRICITY TO BAKASSI.!!!
Let’s join our hands together and build our land
Thanks and God bless us all.
