Economic Activities Partially Grounded In Calabar As Blackout Enters 5th Day

The total blackout being experienced in Calabar, the Cross River State capital has entered its fifth day.

The blackout reportedly started after last Thursday’s heavy rain and thunderstorm which ravaged the metropolis, destroying property worth billions of Naira, including electrical installations in the city.

Besides the damaged electrical installations, big trees uprooted by the storm also fell on electric installations increasing the blackout which has affected many businesses in the metropolis.

A tour around the city by Our Source revealed that technicians who make use of electricity for their work have suffered the most, especially those who do not own generators.

Mr. Effiong Bassey a welder who recounted his predicament to our reporter said it was becoming too difficult to feed his family.

“Since last week when the rain fell, I have not generated any income, my children and family are suffering.

Another technician who gave his name as Aniekan said he works on phones and phone installations, electricity is an important tool in our work

“Without electricity, we cannot work, I beg the power company to facilitate the installation of power as well as replacement of fallen poles in the affected areas.

Some people who had scheduled their marriages and other social activities also had to expand their budget to accommodate the hiring of generators

“I have no alternative than to make available N50, 000 for additional power, if not my guests will not see cold drinks and the venue will be hot and unconducive.

At the time of filing this report, officials of the power distribution company and Calabar Urban Development Authority as well as the Ministry of Environment were seen clearing the streets of debris.
