As at the time of filing this report, people are asking her questions on her facebook page, she has not given any response. Some are asking what is the cause of the frequentexplosion and how long will it take to resolve.
Another said the development is not new as people in the state have been having skeletal power when there is no explosion. The individual said the entire system needs be overhauled.
He said BEDC remains the worse power distribution business in Nigeria.
However, someone living in Agbor, Ika South local government area, said it’s like Agbor is not part of Delta North as the BEDC power supply was giving light in Agbor as at the time the report was made
