*Adeleke should save our souls*
The people of Ifon-Osun, Ilobu and Erin-Osun in both Irepodun local government areas of Osun State wish to call on Governor Ademola Adeleke and the Osun State Government to reign in on the Regional Head of the Ibadan Electricity Distribution Company, Me Oluwatoyin Akinyosoye to stop intentional provocation and sabotage of both economic and social development of our communities.
This call became necessary as Akinyosoye-led Osun region has for over a week disconnected power supply to our communities, thereby subjecting hundreds of thousands who desire power supply for their daily businesses to hardship.
One would think a reasonable head of an institution like IBEDC will join the government’s effort towards restoration of peace in Ilobu and Ifon-Osun, but the opposite is the case.
The most surprising aspect of the satanic act of Akinyosoye is the intentional provocation that he is hellbent on not restoring power in our communities until our residents start paying. We ask, paying for what we did not use? Or what exactly is the payment for? This morning is definitely an attempt to provoke us people and we thereby condemn it in its entirety.
Several thousands of our people are on prepaid meters and they have been added to the list of those facing hardship, despite fulfilling their obligations.
We call on Governor Adeleke to use his good office to stop this satanic act. This act is a variance with his government’s determination to bring succor and lasting peace and progress to our areas.
