The Benin Electricity Distribution Company, BEDC, will today commence the enumeration of houses in Owo Local Government as a prelude to metering all unmetered houses in the area. The Hope has reliably gathered.

This is coming on the heels of the agreement reached with the Owo Youths General Assembly(OYGA), who had earlier threatened to stage a protest against the electricity distribution outfit over what they called ‘crazy bills’ being given to power consumers in the area.

According to one Idowu Adebayo, the President of Owo Unity Group who spoke on behalf of OYGA, the exercise will commence in Udashen area of the local government headquarters.

Adebayo therefore called on all households in the town to cooperate with the staff of BEDC and their ad-hoc personnel who will be involved in the enumeration.
It will be recalled that Owo youths under the umbrella of OYGA had in January threatened to embark on a protest against the outrageous power charges and bills being issued to electricity consumers in Owo.

However, the security agencies in the town intervened and BEDC agreed to carry out an enumeration of all houses in the area to ascertain the number of houses that will need to be metered sequel to the metering proper.
