The Abuja Electricity Distribution Company (AEDC) says it will address the condition of the residents of Gosa Kpanyi Kpanyi village in the federal capital territory (FCT).

The company disclosed this a day after TheCable published a story on the condition of the village under the Abuja Municipal Area Council (AMAC).

The village is under the franchise area of the electricity distribution company, yet it lacks electricity, which has brought hardship on the people.

In 2019, not less than 16 villagers, including six children, died in road accidents while crossing the highway to charge their phones and watch television.

In the company’s reaction to the viral video, the company said it had notified the appropriate department to handle the situation.

“Thank you for bringing this to our attention. Please be assured that the appropriate quarters has been notified to address the situation,” the company said in an Instagram post.

On Tuesday, the Rural Electrification Agency (REA) also reacted to the story, saying that it has directed its project team to look into the plight of the residents.

“Thanks for engaging with us. We have already informed our project team to view this video. Such under-served and unserved communities are the reason why we have continued to drive different novel mini grid projects. We give you our assurance of a feedback on this shortly,” REA said.
