The Alake of Egbaland, Oba Adedotun Aremu Gbadebo, yesterday ascribed lack of planning and bad management to continuous power outage in the country.

Gbadebo lamented that for the past 10 years, the power supply has been “going down”, insisting that the power sector could not get better unless something “drastic” was done.

The monarch, who spoke yesterday when the Chairman and the Board of Directors of the Ibadan Electricity Distribution Company (IBDEC), Dr Olatunde Ayeni, paid him a courtesy visit at his palace, Abeokuta, charged the management of the company to do everything possible to improve power supply in the country.

Gbadebo, however, believed that the myriad of problems confronting the company was temporary, which in his view would soon be resolved.

He said: “You have mentioned all the problems involved and they are enormous, we know that for 10 years in NEPA, somebody sat at the top of the affairs and there was no planning for the future at all and we are suffering for it today.
