Reps task Military on final push to end unrepentant insurgents

• Insurgents destroying electricity facilities in Maiduguri ― Hon Rahis

Members of the House of Representatives on Wednesday urged authorities of the Nigerian Army on the need to intensity their final push in the fight against the unrepentant elements of the Boko Haram terrorists.

The lawmakers gave the charge during the debate on a motion on ‘Urgent call to restore electricity to Maiduguri and its environs’, sponsored by Hon. Abdulkadir Rahis decried the destruction of the electricity facility being destroyed by the insurgents.

While expressing concern on the prevailing situation in Borno State capital city, Rahis observed that “Maiduguri and its environs have been without electricity for over nine months as a result of the destruction of the Power Transmission Towers by Boko Haram terrorists, a development that is adversely affecting the social, economic activities of Maiduguri residents.

“The House is worried that despite the commendable measures by the Borno State Government and the appreciable efforts of the Power Holding Company of Nigeria (PHCN); Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) and the Yola Electricity Distribution Company (YEDC) at rebuilding the Transmission Towers, Boko Haram insurgents are unrelenting at destroying more towers.

Worried by the development, the House urged the Federal Ministry of Power; the Power Holding Company of Nigeria (PHCN); the Transmission Company of Nigeria and the Yola Electricity Distribution Company (YEDC) to devise a means of restoring Maiduguri to the National Grid.

To this end, the House mandated its Committee on Power to ensure compliance.
