Ibom Power Company Limited has sponsored a new radio programme ‘Power Panorama’, which will air on Inspiration (105.9FM) every Wednesday, from 1pm to 2pm weekly to give a full and wide view about the power sector activities in Akwa Ibom State.
According to the Managing Director of Ibom power and Senior Special Assistant on Power to the Governor, Engr. Meyen Etukudo, ‘Power Panorama’, which will be a live studio broadcast that will begin to air today, Wednesday, 10th of February 2021.
The MD said the purpose of ‘Power Panorama’ is to provide accurate information on power sector activities in Akwa Ibom state and keep the people of the state up to date on happenings in the sector.
“We are bombarded with complaints and all sorts of requests for transformers from several communities across the state. This ought not to be because the power sector was privatised on 1st of November 2013. It means private entities are supposed to be responsible for electricity interventions in communities but people keep making request to the state government,” Engr. Etukudo said.
He spoke further that “Even though it is not the responsibility of the state Government to engage in electricity intervention, the state Governor, Mr. Udom Emmanuel has invested significantly in power infrastructure across the state hence the need to keep people properly informed of the activities in Akwa Ibom state power sector”.
