Telecommunications service provider, Airtel Nigeria through its television programme ‘Airtel Touching Lives’ will be focusing on Omishakin, a community in Lagos State that has been without electricity for over 13 years, as the third episode of the series gets underway.
The episode is scheduled to air on February 16, and Airtel has pledged to provide the community with electricity after being in the dark for more than 13 years.
The telco said in a statement that, due to lack of electricity, the community, in recent times, had experienced multiple security problems as hoodlums swarmed the environs in the dark, putting lives and property at constant risk.
Commercial water boreholes operated by individual members of the community also failed as the owners could not afford the resources to fuel generating sets. This resulted in untold hardship as the community members had to walk long distances to fetch potable water.
The upcoming episode will show members of the community as they narrate how the issue of electricity has been a major setback on their businesses and livelihood.
