Edo State Governor , Godwin Obaseki , has given a seven- day ultimatum to the Benin Electricity Distribution Company to restore power supply to consumers in the state within a week or risk a shutdown of its offices .

Obaseki gave the ultimatum while concluding the ward- to- ward campaign of the All Progressives Congress in the Egor Local Government Area of the state, where he urged voters to support candidates of the APC in the 2019 general elections .

The governor lamented that the Disco had continued to frustrate his efforts to ensure that residents in the state got stable electricity to power their businesses .

“ BEDC has continued to put us in darkness in the state and we will give them seven days to restore electricity or else we will shut their offices down in the state ,” he said .

Speaking during the campaign in Ward 9 , Obaseki said N 500m had been set aside in the 2019 budget to construct an entertainment park and waterworks , urging residents in the ward to support the APC candidates to represent them at the state and federal levels .

He said , “ We have awarded the contracts for the repair of the failed portions of Okhoro road and the contractor who went on holiday has resumed work with the promise to start work next week .”

He described Ward 10 as a special ward that had several federal and state institutions, stating that his administration had completed the design of the Technical College road and awarded the contract .

“ I have also asked the contractor to rehabilitate Adolor College Road and in two weeks ’ time , contractors will commence work , ” he assured.
The governor further noted that the rehabilitation work on Adolor College road had become important because over N300m had been spent so far in revamping the Government Science Technical College which would be reopened for academic activities in September 2019 with 1 ,500 students .
