Determined to curb incidences of electrocution and other electrical hazards, the Enugu Electricity Distribution Company (EEDC) has taken its awareness campaigns to schools aimed at sensitizing pupils on the dangers of misapplying electricity.
The campaign is aimed at orientating school children who are seen as the “leaders of tomorrow” at the early stage of their lives on electrical safety and electricity distribution operations.
The Head, Corporate Communications, EEDC, Mr. Emeka Ezeh, made this known after the team from EEDC visited Lady Ibiam Girls Secondary School, Enugu, to engage the students on Friday.
According to him, these children are witnesses to illegal activities going on within their environment and are already growing up, seeing these illegalities as normal.
“As part of our efforts towards entrenching the right knowledge and orientation to the public, Enugu Electricity Distribution PLC (EEDC) has embarked on massive stakeholder education/sensitization campaign to schools within its franchise area.
“Our organization decided to adopt the approach of “training up a child in the way he/she should go, so that when he/she grows, he/she will never depart from it”.
