Residents of Jikwoyi Phase IV in Abuja Municipal Area Council (AMAC) have decried the epileptic nature of power supply in the area and called on the authorities concerned to come to their aid.
A spokesperson of the community, Linus Damissah, told Aso Chronicle that the electricity being supplied to the area cannot power ordinary ceiling fan not to talk of iron or refrigerator.
Damissah, who attributed the poor state of power supply in the area to the weak transformer, which is begging for change, said they are still being given electricity bills as high as N2,000 per household in a month.
"We still pay bill of not less than N2,000 every month even when we hardly see light here," he bemoaned.
He also complained of absence of potable water and government owned hospitals in the entire community, adding that the residents go as far as Karshi for medical attention.
"We buy water every day. A 25-litre jerry-can goes for as much as N30.00. The private hospitals here are very costly for the common man to afford," he added.
On the issue of security, he said that the community has enjoyed some level of peace in recent times particularly after about four robbers were reportedly killed by mobile policemen.
Aso chronicle also observed that the community is being threatened by erosion.
