and if these rumours reflect
any sort of semblance of the reality
regarding the installation of the new pre-paid meters

in/at buildings connected to the electricity grid in Onitsha

then the scenario

is rather dis-heartening
and lowers both the spirit and the morale

in addition to being very concerning.

the Wuhan, China originated COVID-19 global killer disease
triggered
a lock-down of virtually all of the 36 states in Nigeria and
the Nigeria Federal Capital Territory ( F.C.T ), Abuja

as a necessary response and
a major effort to curb and halt the pandemic here in Nigeria.

businesses closed.
offices closed.
schools closed.
inter-state borders were shut down.

however, it’s been a while now
( .. since June?, 2020 or thereabouts .. if my memory serves correctly .. )
that the
lock-down was lifted in Anambra State and
therefore also
in Onitsha which is a part of Anambra State

and the emerging rumours that
since the COVID-19 lockdown was lifted in Onitsha/Anambra State

ENUGU ELECTRICITY DISTRIBUTION COMPANY ( ENEDC ) staff / officials
have not installed any of the new? pre-paid meters
anywhere in Onitsha

are at one and the same time

worrisome
concerning
and high blood pressure inducing

especially for
persons who may have completed all necessary forms and
also made all necessary monetary payments and
are still unable to see any tangible results for all their endeavour.

the rumour is that
ENUGU ELECTRICITY DISTRIBUTION COMPANY ( ENEDC ) staff / officials
in Onitsha
were actually installing the new? pre-paid meters in/at buildings
in Onitsha

BEFORE THE COVID-19 LOCKDOWN.

and the question now is,
rumours .. rumours .. everywhere,
still,
why have ENUGU ELECTRICITY DIDTRIBUTION COMPANY ( ENEDC ) staff / officials
STOPPED INSTALLING the new? Pre-paid meters
in Onitsha

since the COVID-19 LOCKDOWN WAS LIFTED ?????????
