PHCN’s broken pole endangers lives in Awka, By Uduchukwu Chukwuemerie



Hello Editor,

Please help me to alert the Power Holding Company of Nigeria PLC, PHCN, Awka District, that this almost fallen electricity Pole in the picture above is endangering the lives of the people at Akoyeli Street, Awka in Awka-South LGA of Anambra State.

If not quickly and safely removed, the lives of people in the area is at great risk because the pole is close to the ground.

The pole lost its foundation as a result of the ongoing road project in the area.

It was expected that PHCN would successfully relocate all electric poles in the area before the road project commenced but they failed to do so.

The pole is located at Akoyeli Street very close to Choice Hotels, Awka.

Thanks for your understanding.

Yours Sincerely,

Uduchukwu Chukwuemerie,
