The replaced electric pole
The Power Distribution Services (PDS) has replaced the damaged electric pole at Lakeside, a suburb of Legon in the Greater Accra Region, which carried a transformer supplying power to the area.
The replacement followed a concern raised by a resident of the area in a Facebook post, which energynewsafrica.com published at the weekend.
After the publication, PDS informed this portal that it would despatch its engineers to the area to replace the damaged pole to avert any imminent disaster.
This portal can confirm that the pole had been replaced as promised by PDS.
This was the Facebook post shared by the resident:
Dear Power Distribution Services (PDS) .This is happening right in Accra, Lakeside to be specific within the Legon District. Don’t wait for people to die before we come and say “THE INCONVENIENCE IS DEEPLY REGRETTED” . Don’t wait until the unthinkable happens for officialdom to come and read looooooong speeches and BIG GRAMMAR. It has been like this for well over 2weeks. How much does it cost to replace a wooden pole that carries a transformer? We pay some “ENGINEERS” in the LEGON DISTRICT to work, but this is what we get……… I have done my part for GOD AND COUNTRY. Let the responsible people ACT.
