GOVERNOR FLOGS PHCN MANAGER FOR POWER FAILURE

By 03:14 Fri, 26 Oct 2012 Comments


Governor of Sokoto State,

Northwest

Nigeria, Aliyu Wamakko, has

flogged a

manager of Power Holding

Company

of Nigeria, PHCN, for failing

to supply

electricity to his community.

Premium Times, an online

news portal

reports that the governor

flogged the

manager and ordered his

security

officials to assault two other

PHCN

staff.

The management of the

Kaduna

Electricity Distribution

Company, KEDC, a

subsidiary of the Power

Holding

Company of Nigeria, PHCN,

accused

the Governor of assaulting

the

workers.

The Acting Managing Director

of the

Company, Mohammed

Adamu, made this

known at a press briefing late

Monday at the company

Doka office

in Kaduna.

Mr. Adamu explained that

the staff

was summoned by the

governor and

was beaten to a pulp by the

Governor and

some of his aides.

On Saturday, 20th October,

2012, an

unusual and unfortunate

event took

place which was beyond our

comprehension. On the said

date our

business manager, Gwiwa

Business Unit,

Sokoto state, Moses Osigwe,

was

invited by the Executive

Governor of

the State, Aliyu Magatarkada

Wamakko to his personal

residence,

over the issue of lack of

power supply

to his hometown, Wamakko,

as a result of

a failed 2.5MVA transformer.

He accused our staff of

deliberately

denying his community,

Wamakko, of

power supply. As the business

manager was trying to explain

to him,

the governor just brought out

a horse

whip (popularly known as

bulala in

Hausa language) and lashed

him to a

pulp, Mr. Adamu said.

The PHCN boss said the

governor brutality

did not stop at being the

direct aggressor, as he also

invited and

instructed two hefty mobile

police

men to continue with the

beating

spree until the business

manager fell

on the ground and became

unconscious.

In the same vain, the

Governor did not

stop at the beating of our

business

manager but invited two

other staff of

the company namely, Isyaku

Daura,

Officer 2 (Electrical) and

Nuruddeen

Mohammed, Staff 1 (Lines)

and

ordered the mobile

policemen to beat

them up, also to a pulp, he

lamented.

He described the governor

action as

uncalled for, barbaric, and

uncivilised.

The Senior Special Assistant

to the

Sokoto state Governor, Sani

Umar,

when contacted on phone

told reporters

that he was driving and

would call back. He was yet

to do so as

at the time of this report.
