The residents of Atekong community in Calabar have vowed not to vote in tomorrow’s governorship and House of Assembly election.
Some of the residents who spoke with CrossRiverWatch decried the total darkness that the residents have endured for over six months without electricity supply.
They complained bitterly that despite the fact that the energy company, PHCN has been privatized, the Port Harcourt Electricity Distribution Company, PHEDC which is in charge of Calabar, has continued to bring bills every month even when there is no electricity supply.
They said since the leaders do not care and do not want to do anything to bring them respite, they will stay away from the polling booths as a way of protesting against what they described as ‘injustice’.
