As Muslim faithful are observing Eid el-Kabir celebration, the Management of Ibadan Electricity Distribution Company (IBEDC) Plc has urged parents to ensure proper supervision of children to prevent electrical accidents and not engage in cooking or trading under high-tension wires.

This was contained in a goodwill message signed by the Chief Operating Officer (COO) of the company, Engr. John Ayodele and made to Vanguard.

The COO while reflecting on some of the key lessons of Kabir which are compassion, unity, and sacrificial giving, enjoined all to demonstrate these virtues in everyday life.

He urged all Nigerians during the holiday season and beyond, to imbibe the culture of celebrating cautiously and safely, as this would help reduce any breach of safety protocols that can endanger lives.

“I plead with our customers and all Nigerians to observe and adhere to all the COVID- 19 safety protocols of hand washing, use of face masks, and physical distancing as recommended by Nigerian Centre For Disease Control (NCDC).”

He said it is also important that other safety precautions such as proper supervision of children to prevent electrical accidents, not cooking or trading under high-tension wires, and not engaging quacks to fix faults are strictly observed.
