UYO – AKWA Ibom State Commissioner for Information and Communications, Mr. Aniekan Umanah, has called for support for the Federal Government programme aimed at attaining efficient power supply for the citizenry.

Umanah made the appeal at a one-day public enlightenment forum organised by the National Orientation Agency in collaboration with the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission, NERC, to sensitize the public to understand the Electricity Multi Year Tariff Order, MYTO, in Uyo.

The commissioner who was represented by his Director of Technical Services, Mr. Inyang Jameson, said that Governor Godswill Akpabio’s administration has demonstrated its support for Federal Government power programme by completing the Ibom Independent Power Plant at Ikot Abasi.
