The Akwa Ibom State Command of the Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS) has lamented the working conditions in its Uyo office due to lack of steady and quality power supply.
The Comptroller-in-charge of the command, Mr G.C. Didel, stated this during a courtesy visit to the Senior Special Assistant the Governor and Managing Director of Ibom Power Company Limited, Engr MeyenEtukudo, recently.
The immigration boss, who was deployed to the state in June, last year, said the lack of steady and quality power supply at their office posed a huge security challenge to the law enforcement officers especially at night and appealed to the State Government for intervention.
In his response, Etukudo assured the delegation of the State Government’s readiness to intervene and improve the power supply at their Uyo office.
He said, so far, the State Government has distributed and installed over 450 transformers across communities in the state even though it ought to be the responsibility of the distribution company, Port Harcourt Electricity Distribution Company (PHED).
The Governor’s aide asked the NIS to put their request into a formal letter addressed to the Governor and the Commissioner for Power and Petroleum Development.
He said the power sector office will take it from there.
