Residents of Gulani, a community in Yobe State on Sunday, staged a peaceful demonstration to show their anger over the lack of power supply in their communities.
The residents urged Yobe State Governor Mai Mala Buni to intervene in the long term and perpetual darkness in their communities.
The community protested when the State Chief Executive visited the town to condole the death of Gulani Local Government Council Chairman, Ahmed Musa Gulani who passed away recently.
They noted with dismay that the communities have been abandoned by the stakeholders responsible for attending to their plights.
They carried placards with the inscription ‘Gulani has no Light’. ‘We are living in darkness” and’. ‘Gulani no NEPA’.
A resident, Musa Sanusi who spoke to newsmen said they decided to protest to show their displeasure because things are wrong and nobody is taking their cry to the government.
“We have to stage this protest because this is the only opportunity to send a message to the governor to let him know that all is not well in Gulani. If people close to him are not telling him, we decided to let him know.
“Now we will know whether the problem is from the governor or the people representing us because the governor has heard our call if we see him working then we know our representatives are not doing their work. If he did not do something about this then we know that the problem is from him” Mr. Sanusi said.
