Obiobom Village has raised alarm over lack of electricity in the community.
The community raised the alarm through the village head Chief Usen Okon Udo demanding for electricity in the village.
Chief Okon Udoh said since the creation of the village there has not been electricity, market, pipe born water, school including other basic amenities that make up a community.
He said even when the community has gotten a transformer donated by a son of the community, the Village council has written a letter pleading with the present chairman of Abak LGA to come and installed the transformer but expressed disappointment that till now the transformer has not been installed.
Also speaking the youth president Mr. Nsidibe Peter made it known that since the inception of the village there have not been basic amenities including electricity and because of lack of that the community is not attracted to development.
Mr Peter called on the state government for intervention, adding that a letter has been written to the local government council to assist the area in the installation of the transformer but all efforts prove abortive.
He described the governor as a leader with a good intention for the people and plea that Obiobom Village should not be left out in the development of communities in the state.
