The Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, has said he had written to all the 36 states governors and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) minister, asking them to support the electricity Distribution Companies (Discos), in protecting and recovering the right of way for their distribution lines, The Nigerian Voice reports.
In a statement on Monday, the minister revealed that obstruction of rights of way in communities in Ondo State around Okitipupa; in Onitsha, Nnewi, Ihiala in Anambra State, Mowe in Ogun State, and others across the country, has hampered the connection of 11Kv and 33Kv distribution lines within the states.
“The problem of right of way is one that we must overcome together. I have signed letters last week to all 36 state governors and the FCT minister, with copies to each Disco asking them to support you in protecting and recovering the right of way for your distribution lines so that you can serve their states and residents better,” he said.
