Warri Residents Lament a Failing PHCN

Worried by the epileptic power supply in their neighbourhood, market women, men and children in Warri  metropolis  took to the street in
protest over the worrisome power outage in Iyara layout and Ogbe-ijoh market which was gutted by fire earlier in the year.

The placard carrying protesters marched through various streets in Warri, before arriving at the PHCN   office, where the staff  were  prevented from gaining access into their office, and those who came to transact business were turned back.

Meanwhile, the protest   by the women,  which is the second in two months  was made necessary because of the earlier promise by the PHCN
to restore  the broken down transformers  of the people, which they(PHCN) are yet to fufil.

In the same vein, for the third time in two months, the public relations officer  PHCN  Mrs  Anthonia Ivhurie  declined to speak on
the issue when contacted.

The protesters refused  to speak  with  journalists, due to their disappiontment with the press on the issue.

However, they promised to continue to protest till their light is restored.
