By Kenneth Orusi, The Nigerian Voice, Asaba

A group known as National Congress of Anioma Youth (NCAY) has commenced the developmental strides of the chairman of Aniocha North Local Government Council, Delta State, Hon Chuks Oseme.

This was disclosed to journalists by the Leader of the group, Comrade Azuka Afukpua during the youth summit held in Asaba.

According to Afukpua, Oseme’s administration has put the right peg into the right hole by providing power supply in Issele-Uku in Aniocha North Local Government Area which other political leaders in the area were unable to do.

NCAY maintained that since assumption of office, Oseme has been running all inclusive government which is his cardinal point, stressing that the people of Aniocha North Local Government Council should appreciate God for giving them such a man with wisdom and knowledge.

Today, the lingering blackout in Issele-Uku, Oseme should not be held responsible because the truth of the matter is as a result of the indebtedness of the community (Issele-Uku indigenes) who are the power consumers could not pay their BEDC bills.

The indebtedness of the power consumers to BEDC was alleged to be over N16 milliondespite that the newly crowned monarch of the community, His Royal Majesty, Nduka Ezeagwuna II has started making frantic efforts to ensure that power is restored.

Sources from BEDC and Ministry of Power and Energy, Delta State confirmed that the energy consumers in Issele-Uku are indebted to the tune of over N16 million, pointing that until the debts are settled that is when power will be restored to them.

Although, Oseme who was not available to speak to the press but close sources to his office confirmed that there is still power in the 33Kv Transformer provided by the Chairman to the Local Government Area

According to BEDC and Ministry of Power and Energy sources, there is still power in the 33kv transformer bought for the community by Oseme.

However, the group stated that without fear or favor people from the locality should discountenance the rumour that there is no light in the transformer.

It is from the transformer that the people of Onicha-Ugbo was connected and other nearby communities are trying to be connected, all these are the handiwork of the political enemies of the chairman who do not like his face and his good works his doing for the local government area, said Afukpua.

No doubt that it cannot be contested that Oseme has done credibly well since his coming to office but would have stepped on toes of many people in course of carrying out his official duty but that is not a yardstick to blackmail him for what is not truth.
