Indigenes of Offa, in Offa Local Government Area of Kwara State have called for the removal of the commercial manager of Ibadan Electricity Distribution Company (IBEDC), Offa Service Hub, Isaac Olorungbon, within seven days.
This was contained in a communique issued by Offa Descendants Union (ODU) after a town hall meeting at the weekend.
The communique was jointly signed by Alhaji Tajudeen Bello, ODU 1st Vice President; Dr. Olusegun Ogungboye, General Secretary; Engr Adekunle Hammed Yusuf, Secretary of Electricity Committee and Chief Tajudeen Lanre Shittu, Chairman of Electricity Committee.
Olorungbon was accused of being behind the erratic power supply and cases of vandalisation of transformers in the community.
They also accused him of “failure to live up to the task after five years in the position.”
The ultimatum will lapse on Friday, July 21, 2023.
But Olorungbon, in a terse statement on Sunday evening, denied the allegation, adding that the issue is being handled at the management level and “they will respond appropriately.”
