Delta State governor and vice-presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Ifeanyi Okowa, has regretted the poor supply of electricity to consumers in the state by Benin Electricity Distribution Company (BEDC).

Okowa expressed his displeasure at the official opening of Lumen Christi College, Maryhill, Owanta, Ika North East local government area of the state, yesterday.

He said that even when residents and communities procured transformers and handed over to BEDC, “they will still charge them to energise it.”

According to the governor, sometimes when you install a transformer, the distribution company will ask you to come and pay even when you are handing over that transformer to them.

He regretted that “even when you are ready to pay, they will delay you for six months and even for one year. It’s frustrating. Sometimes when we try to help communities, it is difficult because of BEDC’s delay.
